Updates From the Frontlines: Part 2

 

It seems like it has been forever since a recent blog post has been published. Prenatal appointments, preparing for a move, and transitioning jobs have filled my husband's and I's time . . . if you don't count preparing for our baby girl of course. With the fall season in full swing, I've had to bunker down and piece together marketing campaigns complete with email templates and automations after switching from WordPress to Shopify. It just seems like the checklist can't be completed or stay completed for very long!

With this post, I wanted to provide an update into the shadowy world of the human trafficking nightmare and share how God is allowing nonprofits like The Exodus Road to make an impact on lives of victims of human trafficking.

Read below for the encouraging news!

 

 

The Long Haul

We've often heard the saying "life is a marathon, not a sprint" before. It's become cliche and run down (no pun intended) and sits in the far recesses of our minds. For the victims of human trafficking however, this saying is a constant reminder. Their lives are a series of motion, nonfluid and bitter, broken up by segmented sprints. Behind the poster lies of every day life, lay the rescuers to the victims . . . ever watching and hardly sleeping, itching at the chance for a lead. Their lives are intervaled sprints, chasing down traffickers, organizing rescues, and following leads. Their ministry spans the crevices of time, running the long haul, propelled forward by prayer and faith. Your support helps saves lives.

My previous articles below delve into the underworld of the human trafficking ring.

 

 Updates from the Frontlines

October 21, 2020

Dear Faith,

 

At The Exodus Road, we are all humbled and grateful for your continued support of this freedom work. Many of you are new to this community of action-minded individuals who, together, are a movement of people creating change and empowering freedom around the globe. We want to say WELCOME. Your investment in fighting human trafficking will leave a legacy. 

 

Because of your collective support, undercover work this fall has been successful on the front lines! Children and adults have been freed from slavery and are embarking on a journey of healing and freedom thanks to your generosity. 

 

Here are the highlights.

Operation Fallout

Sex trafficking in Thailand is rampant, and with your help, The Exodus Road is making it more dangerous for criminals. In this operation, the traffickers and the girls they held captive were tracked down using tweets that led TER and local authorities right to them.

 

A social media app that so many of us use for the latest news and updates was the tool the traffickers used to sell and exploit these girls. But our operatives are trained to investigate both physical and digital spaces, and they worked with Thai police to rescue these brave survivors. Two teen girls and two young women were rescued; they're now safe and free. Both traffickers were arrested.

Operation Firefly

TER operative investigations found that a seventeen-year-old girl was being sold for sex at a Thai hotel. The hard reality is that the person who acted as the trafficker was another teen girl, just fifteen years old. This unfortunately is something we see often. In a case like this, a child caught in trafficking may be given a choice by their captor — to keep being trafficked or to traffick others. Can you imagine what would be like to be faced with that choice?

 

Rescues like this not only free survivors, but disrupt trafficking networks like this. Because you equipped our Search + Rescue team with resources to support local Thai police, this teen is now free, and her trafficker has been stopped.

Operation Blue Bird

TER operatives in Thailand spotted suspicious tweets from a female trafficker. She was selling girls and women online for about $45 USD each. Our undercover investigations confirmed trafficking — and two women were rescued in the mission! And the children? While they were not found during the police operation, TER operatives and authorities will not stop looking for them.  If traffickers suspect trouble with the law, it is not uncommon for them to hide children and not sell them.

 

And that is why we are so grateful to you for sustaining this Search + Rescue work. Your giving means our operatives can continue to follow up on this case. Their trafficker was arrested, is facing justice, and is no longer selling the vulnerable online. We are celebrating because these women’s stories will be different because of you.

Operation Resolute

A criminal network that was recruiting, torturing, and selling adolescent girls in one of the most dangerous areas of a *country in Latin America has been stopped. A fifteen-year-old girl was brutally tortured for sharing information about dealings within the brothel with one of its clients. What’s worse, the brothel owner recorded the abuse of this teen and shared it with the other girls in captivity as a threat if they ever dared to speak out. You empowered the Search + Rescue teams to go undercover, communicate with the victim who was tortured, collected evidence, and support police in this mission to take down this human trafficking network.

 

The case was delayed for several months due to COVID-19 restrictions, and the traffickers moved the girls to other parts of the country. But our police partners did not give up. Finally, a significant operation took place. Four traffickers were arrested — two men who were in charge of recruiting teen girls and torturing them, a male brothel owner, and a female trafficker who collaborated with these men in selling the girls. 

 

The search continues for the girls who are being trafficked, but the business of human trafficking has now become dangerous for criminals in this part of Latin America.

Thank you for standing with us, for empowering our Search + Rescue teams, and for lending your voice and influence in the fight against human trafficking. 

 

Together,

 

Your TER Team

 

October 13, 2020

Dear Faith,

 

You’ve empowered JUSTICE.  A criminal network has just been confronted and stopped — four traffickers were just arrested in Latin America! These traffickers were selling and torturing young survivors of sex slavery, but today, you have helped take them out of business. 

*Photo is representational.

The Story Behind the Mission. 

About a year ago, TER operatives were contacted by local police with a request for help in investigations into a criminal network that was recruiting, torturing, and selling adolescent girls in one of the most dangerous areas of this particular country.

 

A fifteen-year-old girl was brutally tortured for sharing information about dealings within the brothel with one of its clients. What’s worse, the brothel owner recorded the abuse of this teen and shared it with the other girls in captivity as a threat if they ever dared to speak out. 

 

Can you imagine anyone, let alone a child, enduring this kind of horrific torture and repeated abuse?

 

As a testimony to the human spirit, and at great risk to herself, one of those girls boldly escaped and contacted the local police. She told them that “she and her friends were being threatened and treated cruelly to keep them quiet about their condition.” 

 

And that’s where YOU come in. Local police reached out to TER nationals asking for help in investigating the criminal network, the brothel, and the girls. YOU empowered the Search + Rescue teams of The Exodus Road with resources to go undercover, communicate with the victim who was tortured, collect evidence, and support police in this mission to take down this human trafficking network. 

 

COVID-19 struck, and the case was delayed as a result of government regulations. Traffickers moved the girls to other parts of the country. But our police partners did not give up. Finally, a significant operation took place. Four people were just arrested — a year after the original tip — two men who were in charge of recruiting teen girls and torturing them, a male brothel owner, and a female trafficker who collaborated with these men in selling the girls. 

 

The search continues for the girls who are being trafficked, but the business of human trafficking has now become dangerous for criminals in this part of Latin America. Thanks for standing with us in this fight, friends.

Alive in Christ

 

The battle between the flesh and spirit is a struggle the Christian knows all too well. It's like waging war on a decaying part of themselves, as Paul suggests in Romans. In many ways than one, he accurately describes the weight that sin has in this life. A nonbeliever will dive headfirst into sin, spiritually dead and undiscerning about the weight of their passionate desires. Our very nature is subject to God's wrath, but in His mercy He rescues and has provided a way back to Himself through Christ's atonement on the cross. This article will focus on the beginning of Ephesians 2 and being made alive in Christ.

Devotional Reading

"Once you were dead because of your disobedience and your many sins. You used to live in sin, just like the rest of the world, obeying the devil--the commander of the powers in the unseen world. He is the spirit at work in the hearts of those who refuse to obey God. All of us used to live that way, following the passionate desires and inclination of our sinful nature. By our very nature we were subject to God's anger, like everyone else. But God is so rich in mercy, and loved us so much, that even though we were dead because of our sins, he gave us life when he raised Christ from the dead. (It is only by God's grace you have been saved!)" (Ephesians 2:1-5, NLT).

"Alive" by Big Daddy Weave, uploaded by BDW Music

Contextual History

You've heard me say that in order to understand scripture, not only does it need to interpret itself, but the history behind the text needs to be studied. Both of these are critical especially in a society that distorts the message of the Bible.

The author behind the epistle of Ephesians is the apostle Paul, written during his imprisonment in Rome around A.D. 61-62. Paul's message focuses on the overview of God's work in eternity (past, present, and future). Even though this epistle is titled "Ephesians," Paul's message is still applicable for all churches today. This is why in some translations there is not a mention of the church in Ephesus, a major economic trade city in Asia. Translators and scholars wanted to ephmazise that Paul's message was not limited to a certain group of people, but spiritually inspired by God for all.

Paul's focus begins with God's work in the past (the atonement on the cross) and moves to the present (the ongoing sanctification process for those that choose to believe in Christ). So, what is Paul stating when he states that those in Christ were once dead because of their disobedience? He is referencing the fall of mankind through Adam and Eve in the garden of Eden and how thorough man's seed, sin entered into the world. He is stating that through one act of disobedience, mankind became spiritually dead and in need of an atonement--a way back to God for the penalty of sin is death.

Read Genesis 3 for the context of the fall of mankind.

The Weight of Sin

Ephesians is often misinterpreted by churches such as Elevation, Hillsong, and Bethel as being about our own works and gratification. God is clear that our own works lead to death and it is only through His grace we are able to have redemption and new life. The Bible isn't about our self-gratification, but on how to deny self. Scripture paves the way to the One who has destroyed sin's eternal power, not to our own glorification.

See the following references for the context mentioned above.

The weight of sin is death, but God has made a way back to Him through the atonement on the cross. Although God has crushed sin's eternal power, we still struggle with sin due to being in a decaying body of flesh that wants to gratify its own desires. It is similar to a person dying and the soul leaving the body. When the soul leaves, the body tries to revive itself before accepting that it is dead. Sin reigns in the same way in the body without God. By being born again in Christ and being made spiritually alive, the body is no longer ruled by its selfish gratification.

Closing Thoughts

The temporary pains of this life are in no comparison to the glory that is to be revealed later (Romans 8:18). For those that have accepted Christ, there is new life through the redeeming blood of Christ's atonement. The power of sin has been thwarted and overcome at the cross. Let not sin reign in your body today. Be set free through the work of Christ on the cross.

The Attributes of God: Omnipotent Creator

 alt="The Attributes of God Series: Omnipotent Creator article by Blissful Faith LLC"

The Attributes of God: Omnipotent Creator

With great power comes great responsibility. On a human level, an increase in power usually leads a person to become selfish and irrational, often abusing their positions if humility isn’t established. Thankfully, God does not operate on a human level when it comes to divine attributes, unlike the deities in Roman and Greek mythology. He is a God of unlimited power, completely balanced by His holy attributes. 

This article marks the 16th segment in the Attributes of God series and covers His omnipotence.

Perfect Balance

“Have you not known? Have you not heard? The Lord is the everlasting God, the Creator of the ends of the earth. He does not faint or grow weary; his understanding is unsearchable” (Isaiah 40:28, ESV). 

God’s power is hard to fathom on a human level, yet it is a comfort to rely on when it is understood in the terms of His holiness. Since humans are imperfect, we think on an faulty, limited thought process. God is completely pure and divine, perfectly balanced. He is perfectly balanced in love, while also being balanced in justice and wrath.

To understand God’s balance, we can’t think merely on human terms, but on spiritual terms. Since God is spiritual in nature, He does not grow weary or faint as we do. When Jesus came to Earth to be was born in flesh to be later crucified as the unblemished sacrificial lamb portrayed in Exodus, He never lost His divinity because He was not born of man’s seed. He is everlasting, creator of the ends of the earth.

No Excuses


“For his invisible attributes, namely, his eternal power and divine nature, have been clearly perceived, ever since the creation of the world, in the things that have been made. So they are without excuse” (Romans 1:20, ESV).

For God to be eternal, He has to be outside of the operation of time as we know it humanly. God created the concept of time, therefore He has to operate outside of its scope to be eternal. Spirits do not have a death date. Likewise, God has no birthdate or expiration date since He is not in human flesh, but in spiritual form. 

To have a better illustration of this concept, please see Answers in Genesis’s article entitled “What Was God Doing Before Creation” at https://answersingenesis.org/who-is-god/what-was-god-doing-before-creation/

The attributes of God’s nature have been woven into the intricate design of all of creation, including humans. For example, humans consist of body, mind, and soul. The law of morality is written upon the heart and is displayed by means of conscience. God established this detail in Genesis when He discusses the flood. Upon evaluation of evidence, this is why humans are without excuse when it comes to denying God as His very nature is expressed through creation. 

alt="The Attributes of God Series: Omnipotent Creator article by Blissful Faith LLC"

Omnipotent Does Not Mean Brute

“And no creature is hidden from his sight, but all are naked and exposed to the eyes of him to whom we must give account” (Hebrews 4:13, ESV). 

When we think of someone as having unlimited or very great power, often times an image of a brutish person will come to mind. This should not be the case with God. However, God states that humanity hates Him without reason (John 15:25) due to our pride. 

God is able to have unlimited power and yet not sin because of His complete holiness. He was not born of man’s seed to be like man in nature or created by man to be limited by their perception. 

Closing Thoughts

God’s omnipotent nature is a source of refuge as He is perfect in nature. When the world’s system fails, those who are in Christ can rest assured that God’s balance will never fail.
