Caleb and I watched this Friday night. It was eye-opening, engaging, and heart breaking. It put together very well and was quite informative about the global issue of sex traficking. It made me realize how big an issue this really is. I mean, I knew it was bad but there are so many layers; organized crime, poverty, money, selfishness. And it is as much a spiritual battle as anything. Basically everyone in the industry is wholeheartedly believing some sort of lie; whether it be that they're worthless, or that they're going to be fulfilled by getting rich. Really it's the stripping away of the dignity of human beings. At the root of it all is selfishness.
But there is hope. At the end of the documentary, there were stories that brought me to tears. Jesus restores. He heals. He makes all things new. He gives us beauty instead of ashes. He makes us whole. He gives us freedom.
We've got a long road ahead of us but it's filled with hope, redemption, and restoration. What are you going to do to help?
