You can not change a nation, until its citizen knows their identity. #priceless campaign in Mexico – Join @generationofpeacemakers team to restore the identity and to rescue young girls and boys and to tell every person that “They are Priceless”. #lavish #restoration #rescue
On this recent mission Trip to Nepal, Our plan was to visit the market place “Slums” where traffickers buy girls, so we wanted to bring awareness and to rescue poor girls who are sold because of poverty and people do not know their identity. Our US-Director Jobyna Beth has already been to Nepal on a Mission Trip in 2014. Every day we were finding in the news papers, how brutally girls are being raped and sold.
There are thousands of children like this little girl, who has to sell her tea to make money for her family to survive before being able to attend school.
I remember a verse in the Bible “Be sober, be vigilant; because your adversary the devil, as a roaring lion, walketh about, seeking whom he may devour: 1-Peter 5:8
They are in search of innocent young virgin girls and boys to use them as sex slaves. Countries like Nepal and Pakistan are the major countries where traffickers can easily buy young teen girls and sell them to India & United Arab Emirates.
The secure streets are not safe, they cry out because of the sin and innocent blood shed. The only freedom that runs those streets is the traffickers, pimps, and corrupt police that coerce, manipulate ,and trap young girls and parents into selling themselves and children.
As we were in Kathmandu, Nepal this is the capital city of Nepal. Thamel area is a tourist area, Thousands of western girls and boys were walking freely on the roads and streets. We were also walking on the road, but we felt the secure streets are not safe, they cry out because of the sin and innocent blood shed. The only freedom that runs those streets is the traffickers, pimps, and corrupt police that coerce, manipulate ,and trap young girls and parents into selling themselves and children. Police in this country are corrupt like in Pakistan and India. They also help pimps to run such businesses. When the pimps requested to Kaleem to receive a body massage, and after our denial they requested for sex and said there are good looking girls. He denied and told them its not good to sell our selves for money, God created humans to live a blessed life, to honor and to value themselves. The Policeman who was standing some far from the pimp asked Kaleem why do you not like it, would you like to smoke. Kaleem told him, he is a Christian and we are here to help Nepali people to teach them about their identity and value.
“The Next morning when we were at a local bus station, we found a young girl who was selling tea in this cold early morning. She asked us to drink tea but Our team had already done breakfast. We asked about her life, as she was good in speaking English. It showed us that she studies but she told us that she is unable to attend school until she sells all of her tea.”
Jobyna Beth Wrote: Before getting on the bus I was approached by this young girl it was around 7 am and she wanted me to buy tea, she was dirty and her clothes were in a bad condition, you could see pain in her eyes but she covered it as she had a bubbly personality but was taught to be way to free with people in order to sale the tea. I asked Kaleem to give her money and he gave her a lot but we didn’t take tea, she followed us into the bus and was Asking others, We began to love on her and talk to her. We asked her about school she said she couldn’t go until her tea is sold. So We took tea and I began telling the others on the bus to buy and they did.
I gave her a silver necklace that reads “Priceless” and Kaleem told her how priceless she was, she had to leave cause the bus was leaving, she stood on the curb and was holding and turning the necklace in her hand and than was waving to me, she put it on and than kept reading the word priceless and putting her hand to hold it to her heart.
Than she waved good bye. Every penny, everything it took to get here was worth that moment!! I began to cry because I wished to take her home and rescue her from pain, see her go to school and have all the things the children in the US have and take for granted. Seeing her face light up as she heard she’s “Priceless” and see her walk holding the necklace to her heart is Why we at Holy Light do what we do.
This is the start of our Campaign a little step to restore the identity of a Priceless Girl. Soon we will share more stories “Love for Nepal”, “Priceless”, “The Golden Road” Gospel Pamphlet distribution, Rescued Girls and “The Face of Grace”, where we visited the slum areas, fed 200 Hungry children, spread awareness about Human trafficking and the Love of God in Jesus Christ.
On behalf of “Holy Light Family” we want to Thank everyone that made this trip possible and its our hope that each one of you being apart of this family would be blessed as you read just some of what God did on this trip. Thank you!
Human Trafficking is becoming one of the biggest money making industries in the world because unlike fire arms a person can be sold over and over. HLF-US Team has prepared the Promo video, There are five events already arranged in the USA, you can join HLF and show your love toward the innocent lives, with your love and compassion HLF can do more. Stand for Humanity being A Human.
The largest number of victims trafficked internationally still come from Southeast Asia; over 225,000 each year. Pakistan, Nepal and India are the key destination countries. In muslim countries like Pakistan, People give their daughters 9-12 years old to aged men for marriage as a Islamic tradition. The young girls are often offered as brides as a form of “compensation” to settle disputes between families, tribes or whole villages. Mostly the system of Panchayat/ Jirga/ decide these marriages in swara/vani. It is as result of punishment decided by a council of tribal elders/family. Girls don’t go to the police and court and don’t highlight such causes because the victimized girls have to bear it all “for their families respect and accept it as a religious tradition that women have no rights for her life or marriage.
4 million underage children are forced to work, 1 million of these young boys live on the streets. They Work 14 hours a day and the Main type of work they do is picking up garbage, if they do not make 200 rupees ($2) a day and they are beaten. Every bus driver and man sexually abused and rapes these boys as young as 6 years old by bribing them with a soft drink when they are without food for days and days at a time.
Even though this inhumanity is happening all over Pakistan, in just the city of Peshawar alone there are more than 5000 street boys most of which are all boys. Bus and truck terminals is where most of the sexual abuse happens to these young boys. The boys are starving and wandering the streets so they are easily lured by food and shelter and then sold and raped. 95% of truck drivers say there Main entertainment is having sex with boys. Most street boys are hooked on heroin. These children are easy access for extremists muslims to use them for suicide blasts after brain washing them. Law enforcers don’t listen to the cries and the gov doesn’t implement the laws. These young girls and boys are also trafficked to arab and golf countries for sex and cheap labor.
Five Fully Functional Rescue Homes & Rehabilitation Centers
Root Ground – In Nepal and Pakistan
Market Place – In Redding, Seattle and LA, USA
Where These women and children will go through inner healing, the embrace of a loving Father Jesus Christ. Where they will be fully trained and equipped care givers that stay and live in the safe houses. In the safe houses they are educated and taught a vocational skills, empowered and equipped to be victorious over-comers in the outside world. They leave completely restored and delivered with their vocational skills of sewing, fashion & design, cosmetology, teaching, graphic designing, computer skills, business management, health and fitness, barista and hospitality. HLF – Generation of Peacemakers will create avenues for their vocational skills to be used in all mountains of influence.
In this campaign, we are also focusing on poor children who are priceless but are rejected by the rich society and because of easy access they become tools or puppets in the hands of traffickers and terrorists. We have a plan to start a sustainable development project will run a school for 200 Poor children (girls and boys) and will also generate income for 17 families. For Details see Changing Lives Project.
These girls and boys will also operate in the supernatural and bring the kingdom message back to their homes, communities and villages. Gathering other kids that could be a easy target to traffickers and teach them the word of God, and help teach them how to create business so they can also make their own money.
When I was 3 years old I went into my dad’s office and told him I wanted to give my life to Jesus and make him my Lord and Savior, so in that moment my dad helped and walked me through the prayer of salvation and the presence of the Lord touched me and changed my life. It was the very beginning of a beautiful relationship with Jesus and a deep desire and hunger to know him, and daily he showed me his heart. It is never that there’s a mission or a calling he gives without the foundation being to know him, to know I am truly known by him, and have a intimate relationship with him. It was at this age he told me that I would go into the darkest places of the world and eradicate slavery, he showed me many strategies, faces, images that nobody would want a 3 year old to see but it was in the context of his presence. Then, I didn’t know the names Sex Trafficking, Human Trafficking, Labor Trafficking as I do today, I only knew the word SLAVERY, which that can mean many things but the definition of Slavery is, bondage, servitude refer to involuntary subjection to another or others. Slavery emphasizes the idea of complete ownership and control by a master: to be sold into slavery. Bondage indicates a state of subjugation or captivity often involving burdensome and degrading labor: in bondage to a cruel master.
We can become a slave to many things with the absence of Jesus, but his word says once we have asked him into our hearts and chosen to make him our Lord and Savior we are no longer slaves.
“So you are no longer a slave, but God’s child; and since you are his child, God has made you also an heir.” (Gal 4:7)
There is a slavery where the innocent that are made to be slaves by torture, rape, coercion, drugs, trauma and more, they had no choice, had no fight, no voice and that is Sex Trafficking and Child labor.
To truly know Jesus is to know his heart, to know what he’s saying daily and partner with that as he shares. So to see slavery end and the generations of voiceless children and youth come to him its our job teach each and everyone who there Heavenly Father really is and who they are through his eyes, and teach them his word which is the main weapon against the enemy.
It says in the bible:
“Then the King will say to those on His right, ‘Come, you who are blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world. 35‘For I was hungry, and you gave Me something to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me something to drink; I was a stranger, and you invited Me in; 36naked, and you clothed Me; I was sick, and you visited Me; I was in prison, and you came to Me.’ 37“Then the righteous will answer Him, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, and feed You, or thirsty, and give You something to drink? 38‘And when did we see You a stranger, and invite You in, or naked, and clothe You? 39‘When did we see You sick, or in prison, and come to You?’ 40“The King will answer and say to them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did it to one of these brothers of Mine, even the least of them, you did it to Me.’
41“Then He will also say to those on His left, ‘Depart from Me, accursed ones, into the eternal fire which has been prepared for the devil and his angels; 42for I was hungry, and you gave Me nothing to eat; I was thirsty, and you gave Me nothing to drink; 43I was a stranger, and you did not invite Me in; naked, and you did not clothe Me; sick, and in prison, and you did not visit Me.’ 44“Then they themselves also will answer, ‘Lord, when did we see You hungry, or thirsty, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not take care of You?’ 45“Then He will answer them, ‘Truly I say to you, to the extent that you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to Me.’ 46“These will go away into eternal punishment, but the righteous into eternal life.” (Matthew 35:34-46)
So see it is our job as Christians to do exactly this which means its not a separate calling for only some Christians and some ministries to focus on ending this horrible and heart breaking type of slavery but if everyone would Unite it would end. This can no longer be a silent matter or think its to big. The same for bringing the awareness of what Islam is, What Muslims really believe according to what the Kuran says. The Truth is Trafficking is very close to becoming the biggest money making business in the World its not a little problem, and Isis is only growing more powerful and bigger in numbers. Both Traffickers and ISIS have many things in common.
1)They both are being used by the devil.
2)They are focused, dedicated, and unified in there mission and planning.
3)They have a Global mindset
4)They want denomination and control and do not care about humanity
5)They are going after our children and generations coming
6)They are misguiding youth, using them as puppets and playing with their future.
That’s just to mention a few.
Isis and Traffickers, they are not sitting there daily thinking about what will the Christians, Americans or others do. But because they have a global mindset and united in that, they are willing to do whatever it takes even if its at there own lives or there families to make there target and plan become a reality. A lot of Christians do not have a global mindset which is what God wants they have a “me” focus and because of that there isn’t unity or focus so there getting weaker not stronger and there confused.
“Why do you call me ‘Lord, Lord,’ and not do what I tell you?” Luke 6:46
“Very truly I tell you, whoever believes in me will do the works I have been doing, and they will do even greater things than these, because I am going to the Father.” John 14:12
We as the body of Christ have one mission that will never change
Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit, teaching them to observe all that I commanded you; and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age” (Matthew 28:19-20).
In knowing all this,we cannot turn a blind eye or a deaf ear any longer.
And see the generations now and the ones coming not knowing who God is and who they are in him, every issue with traffickers and ISIS is they do not know who God is, If everyone in church leadership, Mothers and Fathers began to do this with every young person in there path way or the children entrusted to them we would no longer see the slavery as we do today.
Just think what a Generation would be, would look like if they knew who they were and who’s they are, if they were breathing in and out the very living word of the Almighty and All powerful God, what world now would you be living in, They would be a Generation of Peacemakers, unmovable unshakable, fearless, wise and writing a new future everywhere they step.
