The Unforgivable?

Yesterday was Human Trafficking Awareness Day.
Millions of men, women and children are sold into slavery around the world every year. Many of them in the U.S.

A huge percentage of these people end up being sexually exploited.

There are many ministries and other organizations dedicated to helping those who have been trafficked. Some try to prevent trafficking, some raise awareness, some aid the victims in practical ways.

A speaker I heard recently visited a minsitry that helps women who have been rescued from slavery and forced prostitution. He said that the director of that ministry said that the organizations like hers which help the victims are doing good work, but that they are making little headway in ending the practice. She told him that

this horrible practice will go on until someone brings the love of Jesus Christ to those who do the trafficking

Wow. What would that look like? How would it work? I believe God can do this. Is anyone called to go to these people? How would you find them? Will anyone follow God there?

I don't have the answers, but I think this woman is right.

The question is: What is the next step?
