Trafficking

Posted by The Rev. Josh Bowron on with 1 Comments

Lately, I have become more and more aware of the pervasive and enduring evil of slavery in our world. This is not merely a spiritual dominion of the demonic persuasion, though I may touch on that later. I am talking about the real, present institution of slavery in our world, right now. Here is a link to a group that I support financially and in my prayers: http://slavefreeearth.com/ 

I've learned that 93% of all slaves living in the world today are involved in the sex trafficking trade, which is a huge industry. Please listen to this interview with Slave Free Earth Founder Will Henderson: http://homebrewedchristianity.com/?s=slave#podPressPlayerSpace_1 

This is a group of people who simply want to free the captives, in the name of Jesus. In light of all the self made crises we have in our political system right now, a complete lack of morals and will throughout the public sphere, it is refreshing and a little scary to hear an authentic Christian quite simply and radically answering the call of Jesus. 

So, what are you doing?

Hi! I am a missionary in Honduras sent by St. David's in Roswell, GA (Fr. Paul's former parish.) I am so thankful to see you talking about this scourge. We have a safe house for sexually trafficked girls, the youngest came to us at 11... I stand with in prayer and action. Blessings to you and thank you for your efforts.
