Hard Numbers to Hear on Human Trafficking

“Trafficking in human beings is now the third-largest moneymaking venture in the world, after illegal weapons and drugs. In fact, the United Nations estimates that the trade nets organized crime more than $12 billion a year” (Victor Malarek The Natashas: Inside the New Global Sex Trade).
It grieves me to think about how many people choose to live their lives and make their livings exploiting others. Join me in praying for those who find themselves being treated as disposable products rather than people created in the image of God.
Grace and Peace, Tom
