WHAT IS HUMAN TRAFFFICKING?

HUMAN TRAFFICKING IS A FORM OF MODERN-DAY SLAVERY. THIS CRIME OCCURS WHEN A TRAFFICKER USES FORCE, FRAUD, OR COERCION TO CONTROL ANOTHER PERSON FOR THE PURPOSE OF ENGAGING IN COMMERCIAL SEX ACTS OR SOLICITING LABOR OR SERVICES AGAINST HIS OR HER WILL. FORCE, FRAUD, OR COERCION NEED NOT BE PRESENT IF THE INDIVIDUAL ENGAGING IN COMMERCIAL SEX IS UNDER 18 YEARS OF AGE.

TIDBITS OF TRUTH TO PONDER

SEX TRAFFICKING AND PROSTITUTION ARE ABLE TO FLOURISH BECAUSE OF THE ECONOMIC PRINCIPLE OF SUPPLY AND DEMAND…DEMAND DRIVES…SEX SELLS.

ANYONE SELLING SEX UNDER THE AGE OF 18 WHETHER WILLINGLY OR NOT IS LEGALLY A TRAFFICKING VICTIM.

DOMESTIC MINOR SEX TRAFFICKING (DMST), WHICH IS THE COMMERCIAL SEXUAL EXPLOITATION OF CHILDREN THROUGH BUYING, SELLING, OR TRADING THEIR SEXUAL SERVICES IS HAPPENING HERE IN THE UNTIED STATES, IN OUR STATES, IN OUR CITIES, IN OUR COMMUNITIES, AND IN OUR SCHOOLS…

ONE IN SEVEN (1 IN 7) ENDANGERED RUNAWAYS REPORTED IN 2018 WERE LIKELY SEX TRAFFICKING VICTIMS.

TRAFFICKERS PREY ON AND MANIPULATE VULNERABLE VICTIMS PROMISING THEM ESCAPE FROM THEIR BAD LOT IN LIFE USING THE APPEARANCE OF LOVE, PROTECTION, AND PROVISION AS THE BAIT TO LURE THEM IN.

FEAR, INTIMIDATION, AND THREATS KEEP VICTIMS FROM BELIEBING THERE IS ANY WAY OUT.

SC HAS SEEN A 360% RAISE IN RECORDED TRAFFICKING VICTIMS FROM 2018 TO 2019. THIS DOES NOT NECESSARILY MEAN AN INCREASE IN ACTIVITY BUT COULD VERY WELL BE THE EVIDENCE OF INCREASED CITIZEN AWARENESS AND AND ENGAGEMENT.

POTTER’S HEART MINISTRY SPARROW’S CRY ANTI-HUMAN TRAFFICKING SEMINAR

WITH EDUCATION, ENGAGEMENT, AND CALL TO ACTION, SPARROW’S CRY SEEKS TO EMPOWER AND MOTIVATE PARTICIPANTS INTO FIGHTING FOR FREEDOM FOR THOSE WHO ARE TRAPPED.

EVERY SPARROW’S CRY AWARENESS SEMINAR WILL END WITH A MOVING, HANDS ON CANDLELIGHT SERVICE FOR VICTIMS OF HUMAN TRAFFICKING. THREE CANDLES WILL BE LIT ONE AT A TIME IN ACKNOWLEDGEMENT OF EVERY VICTIM ALL OVER THE GLOBE. THE FIRST FOR THOSE CURRENTLY HELD CAPTIVE, CRYING FOR ESCAPE. THE SECOND FOR THOSE WHO HAVE ESCAPED, BUT ARE YET IN DESPERATE NEED OF HEALING, AND THE THIRD FOR THOSE WHO DID NOT MAKE IT OUT ALIVE. THE CANDLES WILL BE PLACED IN WATER, REPRESENTING THE RESTORATION AND HEALING POWER OF THE LOVE OF JESUS.

A SPARROW IS FOUND CRADLED IN A NEST ON EACH TABLE. AFTER THE CANDLES ARE LIT AND PLACED IN THE WATER EACH PARTICIPANT IN THE SEMINAR IS INVITED TO HOLD THE SPARROW FOR A FEW SECONDS AND PASS IT ON TO THE PERSON SITTING NEXT TO THEM, REMEMBERING THE VICTIMS OF THIS HORRENDOUS CRIME AGAINST HUMANITY.

HIS EYE IS ON THE SPARROW AND I KNOW HE WATCHES OVER ME…

EACH SEMINAR ENDS WITH POWERFUL PRAYER IN AGREEMENT AND UNITY FOR THE END TO ALL HUMAN TRAFFICKING. THIS PARTICULAR SEMINAR WAS HELD FEBRUARY 22, 2020 WITH 12 DIFFERENT LOCAL CHURCHES REPRESENTED AND SEVERAL GENERATIONS OF PEOPLE.

THEN I RETURNED AND CONSIDERED ALL THE OPPRESSION THAT IS DONE UNDER THE SUN; AND LOOK! THE TEARS OF THE OPPRESSED BUT THEY HAVE NO COMFORTER. ON THE SIDE OF THEIR OPPRESSORS THERE IS POWER, BUT THEY HAVE NO COMFORTER. ECC 4:1

THE SPIRIT OF THE LORD IS UPON ME BECAUSE THE LORD HAS ANOINTED ME TO PREACH GOOD TIDINGS TO THE POOR; HE HAS SENT ME TO HEAL THE BROKENHEARTED, TO PROCLAIM LIBERTY TO THE CAPTIVES, AND THE OPENING OF THE PRISON TO THOSE WHO ARE BOUND. TO PROCLAIM THE ACCEPTABLE YEAR OF THE LORD AND THE DAY OF VENGEANCE OF OUR GOD. ISAIAH 61:1-2b

TO COMFORT ALL WHO MOURN, TO CONSOLE THOSE WHO MOURN IN ZION, TO GIVE THEM BEAUTY FOR ASHES, THE OIL OF JOY FOR MOURNING. THE GARMENT OF PRAISE FOR THE SPIRIT OF HEAVINESS. THAT THEY MAY BE CALLED TREES OF RIGHTEOUSNESS, THE PLANTING OF THE LORD, THAT HE MAY BE GLORIFIED. ISAIAH 61:2b-3

AND THEY SHALL REBUILD THE OLD RUINS, THEY SHALL RAISE UP THE FORMER DESOLATIONS, AND THEY SHALL REPAIR THE RUINED CITIES, THEY DESOLATIONS OF MANY GENERATIONS. ISAIAH 61:4
