PREMIERING TONIGHT ~ DON'T MISS "A PATH APPEARS"


(a 3 part documentary)
Jan. 26, Feb. 2, Feb.9, 2015



"Sex Trafficking in the USA premieres on PBS, Monday, January 26 at 10/9c. Don't miss Nicholas KristofAshley JuddMalin Akerman and Blake Lively visiting Nashville, Chicago and Boston to find out how we can end trafficking in America."

"From the best-selling authors and creators of Half the Sky: Turning Oppression into Opportunity for Women Worldwide comes a compelling new book and documentary film, A Path Appears. In the book A Path Appears, coming September 23, Nicholas Kristof and Sheryl WuDunn provide a unique and essential narrative about making a difference in the world — and a roadmap to becoming a conscientious global citizen. The PBS documentary series premiering in January 2015 examines the struggles women face in the United States and abroad, and the inspiring individuals working with them to create effective solutions." A PATH APPEARS

Nightline covered this on 1/23 with Diana Sawyer, former anchor returned to investigate and team up with Nicholas Kristof to preview and explore this happening in various U.S. cities ... actually everywhere. {I am unable to view this, as often happens, because I'm out of the country}


Sometimes the chance to make a difference comes in unexpected ways and places.

—Nicholas Kristof & Sheryl WuDunn

JANUARY is ‪‎HumanTrafficking‬ Awareness Month!

January is HumanTrafficking‬ Awareness Month!
 
Reminder from GIRLS ARE NOT FOR SALE
[GEMS]

I finally remembered to share this before the month passed and the events were over!  HumanTrafficking Awareness Month started in 2007, when the U.S. Senate designated January 11th as National Human Trafficking Awareness Day.  Although it is a U.S. initiative, the United Nations has begun to highlight this topic and working towards global awareness.

Here is an important Declaration to join in signing with Global Freedom Network 

"We, the undersigned, are gathered here today for a historic initiative to inspire spiritual and practical action by all global faiths and people of good will everywhere eradicate modern slavery across the world by 2020 and for all time.
In the eyes of God, each human being is a free person, whether girl, boy, woman or man, and is destined to exist for the good of all in equality and fraternity. Modern slavery, in terms of human trafficking, forced labor and prostitution, organ trafficking, and any relationship that fails to respect the fundamental conviction that all people are equal and have the same freedom and dignity, is a crime against humanity.

We pledge ourselves here today to do all in our power, within our faith communities and beyond, to work together for the freedom of all those who are enslaved and trafficked so that their future may be restored. Today we have the opportunity, awareness, wisdom, innovation and technology to achieve this human and moral imperative."


I've noticed a few trailers like the following for new movies out and other documentaries, making us more aware of how this is happening right where we live (USA) and other places, as well. Of course, in 3rd world countries, but don't loose sight that it's happening all over the world. "In Plain Sight" (below) will be release publicly to coincide with this month in 2015. There is a 31 Day devotional and study guide to help us understand God's heart for the vulnerable and broken in our world. "8 Days" is another release (2014) and the proceeds go to antitrafficking organizations and safe houses across the USA.{Justice Speaks was one of the first organizations that premiered "8 days"} Learn more about this film at "Find Amber".





SAVE
January 11th
for the
PRAYER GATHERING

In October of 2013 I shared prayers from a Prayer Campaign between A21 with Christine Caine and Lysa TerKeurst {P31 Ministries}; if you need help in how to pray. 

Here is another link to IPJC (International Peace and Justice Center) Prayer Service and National Weekend of Prayer (Jan. 9-11, 2015)

Mission 4 Monday sadly ended last year as a meme, but I continue to share here and I know others also share various MISSIONS, especially the people above. Check them out!!! Encourage and perhaps join us.
Since my life is a MISSION, I share whenever I can. There are many of you, who do community involvement/church events, volunteer opportunities or know missionaries that you could share to motivate others. Motherhood and Homeschooling are MISSIONS and callings!!!
Each of these are MISSIONS and important to encourage others.
If you are doing something or share someone's MISSION on your blog, please leave your info in the comments anytime! Hopefully others will notice & come visit. THANKS!

NO LONGER A MEME!

Blessings to ALL Readers & Participants!

It is with a heavy heart that I will no longer be hosting "memes"!

So Mission 4 Monday will still exist as my blog ONLY and I will NO longer be doing this as a "meme" for others to JOIN me and share!

I truly believe that each one that has participated shared GREAT MISSIONS!


MORE BELOW in my post "NO LONGER A MEME"

Thank you ALL for participating when you were able & sharing your mission & heart with us!

I still believe that each one of us "were made for a mission" and an opportunity crosses our path each week to serve others as a MISSION. Open your eyes & see the needs around us!

I still believe in the great value & worth of sharing MISSIONS!

I still believe that you do not have to be a missionary "sent out in the world" to be a missionary. Your home, your neighborhood, your community is filled with needs to be met with the passion & compassion of Jesus Christ. One day a week or month, take the time. It may be the first "short term" mission that God moves in you & touches others with His love.

I still believe "all" that Rick Warren shared in "The Purpose Driven Life" especially Purpose #5!
WE WERE MADE FOR A MISSION!

I still believe that I will continue to share MISSIONS put on my heart right here.

"God has given you a Life Message to share..."

and I know that HE gave me a LIFE MESSAGE and
I hope to share that through what I post here. I will continue to update on ministries as I have and those in my sidebar.

THANKS MISSION4MONDAY PARTICIPANTS & READERS! Click here to see who participated in MISSION 4 MONDAY!



PRAISE the LORD for REPENTANCE in HAITI! Keep praying; get ready to repent in USA & WORLDWIDE

My dear friend Cathy sent me an email about this. This one is provided by SERMON INDEX of the LOVING HANDS Ministry in Haiti.

Tears of the Saints


I had "Tears of the Saints" from Acts1v8 on Vimeo.


You are the light of the world' –– Jesus talking to His disciples.

Are we being the 'salt and light' that we are called to be?

I needed to remove the Vimeo because it says for PRIVATE USE! It's still worth seeing and all of the others available through Mission Mobilizer. It looks like "Tears of the Saints" is no longer available.


So I have replaced it with this song by Leeland & YouTube by lkittycat






IN THE PAST HOUR:


1625 children were forced to live on the streets

1667 children died from malnutrition or disease

115 children became prostitutes

257 children were orphaned because of HIV/Aids.

It gets worse...

2 billion people in the world today have never ever heard of Jesus. 1% of missions financial support, goes to reaching those unreached people. 30,000 people starve to death every day.
