Did you know that 100,000 women and children are sex trafficked each day?
I had no clue, that was until my sister shared with me some stats and her growing concern over the Fifa World Cup. I love the world cup, and to hear that there was a problem happening at the world cup I had to learn more. She went on to tell me that over 40,000 prostitutes have been shipped in to South Africa for the 50,000 of those that will be coming to South Africa for the world cup.
I had heard that there would be a lot of prostitutes that would be in attendance and I had even heard that they started to be transfered there years ago, but I did not know it was this many. I remember reading the stats and shaking my head in shame and sadness, but that was all I did. Enter into the picture my sister and her passion. She far outweighs me in faith and service and always has prostitution and trafficking on her mind. She has started a ministry called scarlet cord ministries where she looks to minister to prostitutes in Nicaragua by providing support, beauty products and prayer. But just thinking about them and the problem was not enough, instead she decided to do something about the issue.
She has launched a movement to pray for prostitutes. Its spans over the time of the World Cup (June 11th to July 11th). She has designated some specific thing of prayer to consider and has even asked for you to get involved by signing up to pray.
Instead of me blab on more about this go and check out her site and lend your support.
