As my roommate and I were flipping through the complementary “Athens Guide” on our hotel room desk we came across a very disturbing article. I’m not going to say much except that it explicitly described how to find illegal prostitution in the city. Our hearts sunk.

After arriving home I was convinced by some friends to watch the movie “Taken”. In the film a father is seeking revenge on his daughter’s kidnappers who are selling her into slavery. He spares no one in order to find his daughter. As I was watching the father fearlessly tear through the country in order to find his daughter, I was thinking of someone else that cares very much for his daughters.

How much more will our Heavenly Father tear through the city saving his daughters in slavery and bringing justice when he comes to reign on Earth?

Human trafficking isn’t a problem only in foreign countries. It is happening right here in the Midwest. Here is a news article that hits close to home.

There are so many organizations around the world that are doing their part to slow the growing trade. One Christian organization that I would recommend supporting is Night Light Ministries. They have beautiful jewelry. Although, it’s a little late to buy for Valentine’s day they have gift certificates available through email.
