Any stool with 6 legs is fine to sit on for a little while. But as time goes by it will become weak and soon will lose a leg and maybe two and the stool will only have a few legs left. You either have to glue the leg back on and anchored it down a little better than before or you could put the seventh leg on it and make it even sturdier. A seventh leg is a much better idea. It will last longer than six legs and be much stronger. Obviously, no one builds a stool with 7 legs. The seventh leg means a longer life for the stool and that it will hold a heavier weight for longer periods of time. We know that no one builds a stool with 7 legs. We are just using this for illustration purposes.
I. CHILDREN ARE PURE
A. The Bible is stern when it comes to children.
1. Matthew 18:1-14 says, “At that time the disciples came to Jesus, saying, “Who then is greatest in the kingdom of heaven?” Then Jesus called a little child to Him, set him in the midst of them, and said, “Assuredly, I say to you, unless you are converted and become as little children, you will by no means enter the kingdom of heaven. Therefore whoever humbles himself as this little child is the greatest in the kingdom of heaven. Whoever receives one little child like this in My name receives Me.
“Whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in Me to sin, it would be better for him if a millstone were hung around his neck, and he were drowned in the depth of the sea. Woe to the world because of offenses! For offenses must come, but woe to that man by whom the offense comes!
“If your hand or foot causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life lame or maimed, rather than having two hands or two feet, to be cast into the everlasting fire. and if your eye causes you to sin, pluck it out and cast it from you. It is better for you to enter into life with one eye, rather than having two eyes, to be cast into hell fire.
“Take heed that you do not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you that in heaven their angels always see the face of My Father who is in heaven. For the Son of Man has come to save that which was lost.
“What do you think? If a man has a hundred sheep, and one of them goes astray, does he not leave the ninety-nine and go to the mountains to seek, the one that is straying? And if he should find it, assuredly, I say to you, he rejoices more over that sheep than over the ninety-nine that did not go atray. Even so, it is not the will of your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish.
2. Why did Jesus use little children to say that unless we become like them we can’t get into heaven? Because children are pure. Their robe is white. They are sinless and we have to become like them. Of course we become this way through the blood of Jesus. And if we cause a little one to stumble. Woe be unto that man. And if one becomes lost what does the master do? He leaves the herd to find the lost one.
a. Do you see any comparison here to trafficking? Pretty clear I think. Think about it.
So our fourth leg is giving praise and glory to God the Father who makes all things possible. And with His help, we shall be successful in rescuing all we can from the evil that the devil has sprung upon us. Children are pure. And we become that way by putting on the blood of Jesus. And then we do not cause another to stumble and we go after those who are lost sheep. Are not those who are enslaved in trafficking the ones that need to be gone after? My fellow Christians we have a duty to rescue these little ones. For they are pure and if we can’t help in the fight to rescue them then what can we expect Jesus to think of us? While you are here on these pages, let me encourage you to help by making a donation. At least do that. I know life is hard and money is tight. Do something anyway. The widow gave her last mite, not knowing where her next meal was coming from. She had faith. Faith the size of the grain of mustard seed can move mountains. Where is your faith?
WHERE DOES THE MONEY GO?
I think that by now most of you have figured out that the donations raised will go to these other five charities so they can do their work and fulfill their mission. This is our first year. We will hopefully be able to keep enough to offset our expenses and then anything left over will be divided amongst these other people so they can go after these criminals. The level of importance will be first with Andy and Mark because of the need for units that actually go after the criminals and rescue the enslaved. Without this nothing else would be necessary. I think that this is the reason charities in this field have not partnered together before now. There is little being done by the Federal government and the states are following in their footsteps. With no one actually pursuing these criminals and rescuing the survivors there is only a few each year that is getting out of trafficking.
Then we will look at Regina. Investigation of each case will be important. Is it or is it not a true case for us. We don’t need to be spending on cases that are not true trafficking cases. She will become really important to Andy and Mark as well. When they get a case they can call on Regina to investigate further for information that will help them to do a better job.
Stacey is going to need a lot of help. Here we are going to have to contact doctors, therapists, CNA’s, Nurses, etc. to care for these survivors. I have seen many charities that have such programs but they are only for one to three months and then they let the person go. From past experience as a counselor that is not enough. I would say, with the way these people have been indoctrinated and brainwashed they will need up to two years of therapy. We will also be in need of housing, food, clothing, and a host of items to assist these people to live and adjust back to a normal life. And all of this adds up quickly. Stacey and I are also working on an international association to further this idea and try to help worldwide.
Have I answered your question? Where does the money go? We have to be transparent by law. So anytime anyone wants to see our financial sheets they remain ready. Will have to see our CPA or our accounting department to get it. You see, I see none of the money. It is all decided by the board as to where it goes. I don’t even take a salary as most CEOs do. My time is strictly voluntary. Cause I love those kids.
