Physically Sick

There are moments when I watch something or hear something and it makes me physically sick. This video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LZzcFTDQLq8 accomplished that. I highly suggest you watch it. For the longest time if something was difficult for me to see or hear I would avoid it, but then I discovered I was missing out on things that I could help make a difference in.

When I went to India it was to love on a group of women that had been thrown away. I wanted them to know that I loved them. That Jesus loved them, so much that He gave everything for them. I wanted them to know that they weren't trash but treasure. As I watched this video, which does a good job of showing the link between pornography and sex trafficking, I was sickened. Sickened because I know many good men that struggle with pornography, sickened at the physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual damage being inflicted on these girls (some as young as 4 years old maybe even younger), sickened because every woman and little girl on a porn site (whether by choice or by force) is someone's little girl. Someone that should be treasured and loved, cared for and protected. Instead they are traded, sold, abused, and raped, repeatedly.

Please join Rahab's Rope (www.rahabsrope.com) and other groups that fight sex trafficking and pornography and pornography addictions (http://www.xxxchurch.com/). Please do something, anything! Share this with someone, post on Facebook, Pinterest, Tweet about it. People need to know that there are more slaves in the world right now than ever before and that in the US as well as other countries women and children are being trafficked, abused, and raped daily, hourly. This isn't a pretty subject but if you don't do something, share, educate, who will? These are women and children without someone to take care of them... truly orphans and widows.

"Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world" James 1:27

Amy is back to blogging?? So exciting! Hey, I have a friend from back in GA that is doing a lot to spotlight human trafficking. Check her page out: http://www.facebook.com/HumanTraffickingStolenWoman

She has written two books that are fabulous. They are on sale on Kindle & Nook for $1. Stolen Woman & Stolen Child.

Love you.
