Monday Inspirations

Human exploitation is a big problem in this day and age. I think for too long we have been blind to it or just ignoring it. 
Recently a friend told me about a documentary that was made regarding sex trafficking and the exploitation of women for sex, called: 
(see the link for the trailer)
 I have had the privilege of watching it. They are currently showing it at screenings around the world and the DVD should be available by the end of the year. 
Watch it if you can and get involved. 
I am planning on. 
There are many issues discussed but the one that hit me the hardest was that there are many young children around the world, and especially in Cambodia, being sold (sometimes even by their parents) to foreigners for sex. 
CNN also released a documentary this past week called "Not my Life". If you missed it here are the links.
This is part one

Part two.

Don Brewster (Founder of Agape International Missions) who speaks on both Nefarious: Merchant of Souls and Not my Life, tells you what he and his team are doing to help.
 "We are going to sacrifice till it hurts, because this is an evil that needs to be destroyed and that's what we're committed to do."

They currently also have a campaign called "Treat the Tricked" - please go take a look and donate. Paying 10 dollars won't make a dent in your pocket, but it will make a difference to a child.
Let's join in and start doing something to protect God's children.
