This past weekend CNN released an article stating that there were over 59 children rescued from child prostitution and 74 pimps arrested as part of an ongoing crack-down on human trafficking. In the article it states,
"More than 690 people in all were arrested on state and local charges, the FBI stated."
and later in the article:
"It is part of the FBI's ongoing Innocence Lost National Initiative, which was created in 2003 with the goal of ending sex trafficking of children in the United States.
The initiative, conducted with assistance from the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children, has so far resulted in the recovery of almost 900 children, according to the FBI. It has also led to more than 500 convictions."
This is huge and a direct answer to the prayers that have been going forth for years in this nation that human trafficking would come to an end. We must keep fasting and praying for the ending of human trafficking. And let this news be an encouragement that prayer works, and according to God's promise He will act when we cry out for justice (Luke 18:7-8).
Did you know that 50% of people caught in human trafficking are children?
