Malaysia in the News

I found this article today:

Malaysia vows action on Myanmar human trafficking

I pray the Malaysian government does not sit on its hands and goes to work on eradicating slavery from within their borders immediately and stops the selling of refugees even faster.

The Dominican Republic has amended its constitution for the first time to prohibit all forms of human trafficking. Praise God! May that mean they combat human trafficking and also that they rescue and aid victims.

And the charges continue: Human trafficking charges brought. I pray the 16 year old who was lured is reunited with her family and given help.

Our children are so incredibly vulnerable to trafficking, especially because they think they are invincible and technology has made the world so much smaller yet so isolated! We need to continue to educate the public, our children and work together to end trafficking. We should not condone, under any circumstances, the buying and selling of people. Period.

We Certainly Live in a Fallen World

I receive the New York Times headlines via email daily.

This was in the Sunday Paper:

My hope is you're actually able to read it - the Times requires you to "subscribe" to their paper. It doesn't cost you anything, you just have register and tell them who you are.

Human trafficking is mentioned at the bottom of the article. No surprise to me that prostitution and trafficking are flourishing in Iraq again. Read Revelation lately?

It could be very easy to give up, lose hope and not press forward. The problem is huge and human beings are quite resourceful in coming with new ways to profit from old crimes. We have to fight on, though. In this article, there is some "shoulder shrugging" mentioned - by the police. We can never accept that prostitution and trafficking are "just the way things are."

An Article Worth Reading

I found that article today as I was searching the internet to see what's new in human trafficking.

I haven't seen the movie "Taken" as yet but hope to soon. It has been said by several people I know that it's a really good movie as far as explaining human trafficking.

Awareness. Awareness. Awareness. We need to continue working to get the word out. People are only starting to believe this MAY be happening on the large scale that it is.
