The horrors of human trafficking are real and occur every day. As Pastor William Agbeti in Ghana points out, much of the human trafficking, the sex slave trade, and, yes, even the human body part market are centered in Islamic countries in the Middle East. We left off in yesterday's Daily Jot saying that victims of the sex slave trade often do not know who their captives are or where they are being kept. Agbeti writes: "When they become sick, they are not treated. When they die, their bodies are dumped." The human trafficking story in Ghana is also part of the similar story that is occurring right now on the US-Mexican border because leftist politicians refuse to address the issue. But it gets even worse, according to Agbeti.
Agbeti writes: "A much more heart-rending offshoot of this business that we are learning about of late involves a booming trade in human parts! In this business, operators deliver girls to slaughter houses abroad and their vital parts are harvested and sold for top dollars! We hear an organ like the heart fetches over $100,000! Our young girl has been very fortunate and thanks to the DAILY JOT, she happens to be the very first girl in her entire village to attend school. Her siblings and several girls in her home town have no hope and opportunity like she has had. She is the talk of the village! She knows what it means to receive help and education. Already, she has dreams of working to help young girls go to school or have vocational training.
"We have purposed to help her achieve this dream - to become a beacon of hope for girls in her village! As stated in Isaiah 58:6-7: "Is not this the fast that I have chosen? to loose the bands of wickedness, to undo the heavy burdens, and to let the oppressed go free, and that ye break every yoke? Is it not to deal thy bread to the hungry, and that thou bring the poor that are cast out to thy house? when thou seest the naked, that thou cover him; and that thou hide not thyself from thine own flesh?" Through this one girl and others we are helping, young girls in the whole village and communities around her would hopefully be saved from modern-day slavery! Truly, it takes only an individual to make a huge difference in many lives! Be that individual!! To God be the Glory!"
There is no end to the evil that is in the world. Slavery in any form is a detestable evil. Taking young girls, however, and selling them into sex slavery, then not treating them when they are sick, or sending them to slaughter houses to harvest their organs is beyond the imagination of most of us. What we have done in our Ghana ministry by helping just one escape this fate is monumental. There are many people that are risking their lives each day to rescue youngsters from the evil that befalls them in these slave syndicates. But who funds and benefits from these slave markets? It is repeatedly reported that Islam organizes, grows and profits from human trafficking and slave trade. It has for centuries and it continues. I just don't get it when politicians and even religious leaders like the Pope say Jews, Christians and Muslims serve the same God.
