Have you had ever felt overwhelmed by a serious problem? A problem that seemed too big to even begin to address?
That is exactly how I feel about sex trafficking. It seems so big and overwhelming yet, I cannot be silent.
As a professional singer and a vocal coach, I have performed internationally and taught thousands of voice lessons for more than twenty years. Music has been an integral part of my entire life. Every day I sing and I express my voice, and I teach others to do the same.
However, there are people in this world who have had their voices stolen. They cannot speak for themselves. In fact, they have had much more than their voices stolen. Their innocence, their dignity, their hopes, their dreams, their bodies… And their very identity has all been stolen.
No matter how confronting or inconvenient, we need to respond to this alarm. The illegal industry of sex trafficking is darker than words can describe. This issue has continually attracted my attention and I have countless times found myself weeping and sobbing over the absolute devastation of lives.
If you can please allow me to be blunt and to express it as it is, as well known Pastor Francis Chan has said:
“This is a very ugly, ugly thing we are talking about. I don’t even like to call it human trafficking. I like to call it, little kids are being raped repeatedly right now. Even some are being raped repeatedly as we are sitting here right now. They are slaves. We have to be completely undignified and DO something about this.”
Pastor Francis Chan
I am sure that you feel the same horror as I do. What is even more frightening is that many are sold by those they know and trust. Child slavery and forced prostitution are big business.
WHAT ARE THE FACTS?
Women and girls make up 70 per cent of detecting trafficking victims worldwide.
We can shine a spotlight on this issue, we can put traffickers behind bars and we can help rescue, protect and give support to the victims.
The bondage is established at many levels, often generational when a new child is born and sold in the same industry.
The need to rescue AND restore is crying out
WHAT IS THE SOLUTION?
Well-known speaker and author Lisa Bevere is the founder of an organization called Messenger Rescue. Messenger Rescue is an outreach of Messenger International and is designed to rescue and restore these lives trapped in darkness. I am humbled and grateful to be involved as an ambassador for Messenger Rescue.
Rescuing women and children from the illegal sex trade is one of the biggest needs facing the earth today and is something that is very dear to my heart.
There are millions of people who don’t have voices in this world.
You can also help be a voice for the voiceless.
Part of my journey is that I first met the founders of the record label “Signature Music Design” in 1998, and we discovered back then that we had a common purpose and question:
“How can we bring awareness to social causes using music?”
We believe music can bring positive change to the injustices in the world, so together we partnered with Messenger Rescue to make a difference in as many lives as possible, through music.
As an artist who worked with SMD, I released an inspirational EP of songs called NEW DAY in December 2017.
I engaged closely with the label to create NEW DAY, including late-night Skype recording sessions between America and Australia.
The songs are inspiring and uplifting to bring hope and truth. They are musical stories that create a reflection of what has occurred in my own life.
This empowering music expresses the freedom we CAN have especially after trauma and abuse.
MY PERSONAL TESTIMONY
My personal testimony includes overcoming deep and horrific abuses, including domestic violence.
I understand what it is like to be trapped and in bondage. I have experienced extreme injustice. I know intimately the pain of what abuse and trauma do to our body, soul and spirit. My own experience makes me even more compassionate towards those suffering and we need to be clear that if these sex trafficking crimes affect one of us, they affect all of us.
MAKING A REAL DIFFERENCE
It is time we start to bring this issue out from under the carpet and begin dealing with these problems like never before.
Reports of young girls servicing up to fifty men a day, and punished mercilessly by pimps and traffickers in unimaginable ways are common. This needs to stop. It is possible to stop if we all work together.
With your support, we have the opportunity to see the rescue and restoration in an area where millions of women and children have been exploited.
You can help make a Real Difference.
The campaign that ran from Dec 2017 was wonderful and donations made created change, hope and freedom. If you were part of that – thank you!
There is more to do so here is stage two…
WHAT CAN YOU DO?
Your partnership with this project goes directly to providing freedom for those trapped in human trafficking. These efforts include the funding of raids, covert gear, ongoing operations, aftercare provision, and awareness efforts.
I am asking you to generously give to this incredibly worthy cause. I am not going to say, “Imagine if it was your daughter” or “How would you feel if you lived this way.” These kinds of phrases are unhelpful.
