Human Trafficking Awareness Day


It is estimated that there are 27 million people that are modern day slaves. Slavery is not dead just less recognizable. Because His heart burns against injustice mine can't help but burn against it too. Know what is happening, ignorance may be bliss but it's simply not the truth.
Some of my favorite organizations right now are Love146 and the A21 campaign. There are hundreds of excellent organizations out there and plenty of well done documentaries (Nefarious: Merchant of Souls) out there to watch to learn more.

There are more slaves now than at the height of the Mid-Atlantic salve trade. I believe that this could be a sign of the times.

Revelation 18:11-13
11 “And the merchants of the earth weep and mourn over her, because no one buys their cargoes any more— 12 cargoes of gold and silver and precious stones and pearls and fine linen and purple and silk and scarlet, and every kind of citron wood and every article of ivory and every article made from very costly wood and [n]bronze and iron and marble, and cinnamon and spice and incense and perfume and frankincense and wine and olive oil and fine flour and wheat and cattle and sheep, and cargoes of horses and chariots and slaves and human lives.

May the fire burning in my heart against injustice never. go. out.
