INTERNATIONAL JUSTICE MISSION and CHILD PROTECTION COMPACT ACT

Please GET INVOLVED! You can DO something and MAKE A DIFFERENCE!


Please go and read Rachel's blog on the SOLD Project, supporters of the IJM (International Justice Mission) campaign to pass the Child Protection Compact Act in Congress(CPCA) where she mentions which senators and representatives are supporting this legislation. To read more and have a better understanding, you may visit directly to International Justice Mission (IJM) site, they even answer 12 questions, some specifically addressing how this impacts trafficking and how it will eradicate child trafficking. (AMEN!) They clearly explain the Act and give a concise summary, not too complicated. You can help IJM ensure that this vital legislation is passed by contacting your Member of Congress today to urge him/her to support the CPCA.


Under GET INVOLVED on the IJM site the have a section for CHURCH, I love the opening line on that page  and this is meant to you and me, for we are the Church:
"In His call to us to seek justice for victims of violent oppression, God offers a rugged challenge – a task that requires the great energy stored in the global church...."
HERE ARE THE CRITICAL PRAYER REQUESTS at IJM:
Critical Prayer Requests
Prayer For Protection
Ask God to protect IJM staff, their families, and the victims of injustice from physical harm and spiritual attack.
Prayer For Perseverance
Ask God to bless IJM staff with perseverance to seek justice and community transformation in the face of opposition, indifference, and corruption.
Prayer For Love
Ask God to give IJM staff a great love for one another, for the victims that they serve, and for those they confront. 
INJUSTICE TODAY 
"Today, millions of lives around the world are in the grip of injustice.
More children, women and men are held in slavery right now than over the course of the entire trans-Atlantic slave trade: Millions toil in bondage, their work and even their bodies the property of an owner.
Trafficking in humans generates profits in excess of 12 billion dollars a year for those who, by force and deception, sell human lives into slavery and sexual bondage. Nearly 2 million children are exploited in the commercial sex industry. 
The AIDS pandemic continues to rage, and the oppression of trafficking victims in the global sex trade contributes to the disease’s spread..." IJM ... to continue reading more to convince you that something needs to be done and yes, we can make a difference... NOW IS THE TIME. 

While you're at this, why not check out Julie Shematz & the BFA FREEdom™ Team with more updates in this inclusive blog. Also Julie will be on Praise FM radio tomorrow, Friday, Sept. 10


Now this is one blog post of MISSIONS with many links but I cannot avoid sharing this information. This one comes closer to home for me, my home state of MN shared this report

This is appalling and we need to do something! The last paragraph in the article is what is happening more and more, not just here in Mexico or other 3rd world countries, right at home.

Please GET INVOLVED by writing your senators and representative and then PRAY! Thank you

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!
