Hope for the Sold: Fighting Sex Trafficking

Jay and Michelle Brock was attending a leadership conference called Catalyst in Atlanta, Georgia. One of the speakers, Gary Haugen, spoke about modern day slavery. Both Jay and Michelle never heard about this before and never knew that this was happening. They had the opportunity to pre-screen a movie called "Trade". They were totally blown away.

A few years ago, the term "sex trafficking" was not as commonly known as it is today. Jay and Michelle just knew that they have to do something. So they started doing art shows and concerts in coffee shops, talking about sex trafficking to anyone who would listen.

One thing led to another and people started asking, "Is sex trafficking happening in Canada?"

This prompted them to drive across Canada in 17 days to film their very first documentary in 2009.

That documentary is now being used to train 200 border service officers and screened at over 200 high schools just to bring the initial awareness of sex trafficking.

With this second documentary, Red Light Green Light, they have ventured to other parts of the affluent world seeking answers.

At the end of the day, Jay and Michelle know that it is a sin issue, it is a heart issue. Laws do a nominal effect because it does help to prevent trafficking. Yet as long as men are willing to pay for sex, people will be trafficked for sex.

This is where the church comes in - to bring hope into a very hopeless situation. It is time for us to step up and step in, to minister to the broken hearted and show them who God has created them to be.

Dear God, sometimes my "testing" season seems so long. Please give me courage to endure until the end. Help me not to bail! You said you would bless me for hanging in there - I will not give up on you or your promises. You are with me and will see me through this trial.
