The de-humanizing sex slave trade has expanded into the “fastest-growing criminal industry in the world” (US Dept. of Health and Human Services). According to Kevin Bales of Free the Slaves, “27 million people are enslaved around the world.” This includes nearly “two million children involved in the international commercial sex trade” (UNICEF). Human Trafficking has become a:
- 32 billion dollar per year industry, bringing in more revenue than the NFL, NBA, NHL and MLB combined (United Nations)
It has become so pervasive that “161 countries out of 192 are involved in human trafficking” (United Nations).
These stats have been compiled by a group committed to exposing this horrible crime – Exodus Cry. They’ve also created the documentary, Nefarious: Merchant of Souls, to expose this abomination (www.NefariousDocumentary.com). It is due to be released as a DVD May 1.
Please be praying and consider showing this DVD at your church. Exodus Cry also requests support for their follow-up DVDs.
