Stop The Traffic
I had the honor to share and minister at the Stop Trafficking Seminar in Central Asia. One of the strategic leaders (an older lady) came to me after my session on healing of the heart, and with tears in her eyes she shared with me (through the translator): "During the prayer time today I was able to receive healing for the very first time for the pain I carried in my own heart." She was raped and abused as a young woman... His healing love so powerful and beautiful!
Many of the leaders wanting to help others in these nations are ones who were victims themselves and many of them have not received healing for the pain they carry (average 90% of women have been raped at least once, which makes them even more vulnerable to be victims of trafficking). They have big hearts to help, they want the abuse to stop. As their hearts heal they will be able to help the ones they rescue to also heal. Healing of the heart is a very important part of the rescue process, but in many cases neglected.
It is my heart to help leaders like these ones heal and raise up healthy, healed next generation leaders who can change the culture of abuse.
