An issue that Michelle and I have been deeply stirred by over recent months is that of the sex slave trade. The trafficking of humans, including young children, for sex is a devastating global epidemic that has been flourishing in the shadows for far too long. Over recent years, however, light has been shed on just how huge and truly harrowing this issue now is. There are now over 27million slaves worldwide (almost 10 times the population of Wales). And this is not an issue that only exists in the poverty-stricken corners of the third world. Sex trafficking is rife in the UK. Women and children are being sold for sex in Wales RIGHT NOW!
In short, it is time for evasive action.
Things must change.
With that in mind, I’d like to invite you to join us in attending the screening of a powerful, provocative and ultimately hope-inducing film that is showing in Cardiff next week (as well as various other places around the UK). The film is called Nefarious: Merchant of Souls. You can check out the trailer here:
The film is showing on Tuesday 10th July at The Gate Arts & Community Centre at 7pm and is free to attend. As you would expect of a film that addresses this kind of subject matter, it is only suitable for those over 18 years old. More information about the event can be found here. Similarly, you can find out more about the vision behind the film and the global impact it’s having here.
Like I said, God has really laid this whole issue on our hearts, so expect more posts and videos in the weeks and months ahead.
Hopefully see you at the Gate.
“He has told you, O man, what is good;
and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?”
