Did you know that every 30 seconds a child is sold for sex, labor, or organ harvesting?
Many people of faith believe Isaiah 2 verse 6 shows that Isaiah prophesied of a day when child trafficking would occur:
“Therefore thou hast forsaken thy people the house of Jacob, because they be replenished from the east, and are soothsayers like the Philistines,
AND THEY PLEASE THEMSELVES IN THE CHILDREN OF STRANGERS.”
If true, 2,800 years ago Isaiah was shown a day when this disturbing, destructive, and toxic industry thrive. Today the sex trafficking industry brings in $150 BILLION dollars a year. It is one of the fastest growing criminal enterprises in the world. Below gives you a better idea:
- 30 million people are trapped in sex trafficking
- 2 million children are sex slaves throughout the world
- 6 million children are forced into either sex, labor, or organ harvesting
- Sex trafficking is growing so rapidly because criminals can sell a human many times whereas drugs can only be sold once
- The highest consumer of child pornography is the United States of America
This may seem like a foreign, untouchable issue to you. But there actually is something you can do. You can support Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.) in saving children from human trafficking. Here’s a little more about the non-profit:
Operation Underground Railroad, founded by Tim Ballard four years ago, combats child trafficking. Teams of former military and CIA special operatives subdue these criminals as well as train local law enforcement with strategies and resources to find and imprison predators.
In the past four years, O.U.R. has rescued 1,400 victims and assisted in the arrests of more than 570 traffickers around the world.
Join us in supporting O.U.R. to eradicate modern-day slavery and save children being abused throughout the world.
Start with watching this FREE newly-released documentary about Tim Ballard and the O.U.R mission, currently available online at ourfilm.org. After watching the film, you’ll have access to new content and ways to help from Tim Ballard and others.
