A21 Greece Sisterhood Trip -A light for those forced into darkness!

Toda10542414_10203750360191266_2973022352438797415_oy we walked down some of the same streets as the Apostle Paul, we also got to help the A21 Campaign put on an awareness event. “One phone call could free her” 1109 is the number to the hotline in Thessaloniki,   to report any injustice or  suspected  human trafficking.  Today we handed out 2700 candles, each light represents a woman who has been forced into the darkness of modern day slavery.  In reality there are over 27million victims, Women and children are often kidnapped into the industry or sold into it by family under desperate circumstances. The average age of victims continues to grow younger as clients seek “fresh” product.  When I first signed up for this mission trip, my prayer was for harsher punishments for the traffickers, while doing my daily devotion a few weeks back, I was reminded that God can change the heart of man.  Saul was persecuting Christians left and right, one day he was on his way to Damascus to murder even more, and God brought him to his knees and revealed himself to him.  

Acts 9:3-9 As he neared Damascus on his journey, suddenly a light from heaven flashed around him. He fell to the ground and heard a voice say to him, “Saul, Saul, why do you persecute me?”

“Who are you, Lord?” Saul asked.

“I am Jesus, whom you are persecuting,” he replied. “Now get up and go into the city, and you will be told what you must do.”

The men traveling with Saul stood there speechless; they heard the sound but did not see anyone. Saul got up from the ground, but when he opened his eyes he could see nothing. So they led him by the hand into Damascus. For three days he was blind, and did not eat or drink anything.

If God can bring Saul to his knees and change his heart, he can do the same with these traffickers.  I pray for God to meet them where they are, bring them to their knees, and change their hearts!
