Crossroads Compassion Project has recently discovered an incredible resource that will help us introduce our ministry while we help raise awareness about global human trafficking. CCP will be hosting public screenings of the documentary Nefarious: Merchant of Souls in several cities around the U.S. and in Eastern Europe. A good portion of this documentary, produced by Exodus Cry, was filmed in Moldova and it gives a startling account of a horrible injustice that plagues our world today. The following excerpt comes from Exodus Cry.
“For the last four years, Exodus Cry has traveled across 19 nations and over 200 cities to capture the widespread systemic injustice that is occurring in the modern-day slave trade. The release of Nefarious: Merchant of Souls, exposes the undercurrent of injustice beneath the surface of sex-tourism. Millions of women and children around the world are increasingly becoming the expendable pawns of a burgeoning business catering to the demand for illicit sex. These women and children are dehumanized and exploited while mainstream culture remains complicit in their demise. In this film, the Exodus Cry team goes undercover to reveal the plight of the exploited, and uncover the hypocrisy and complicity of cultures around the world that foster this industry, as well as offer an unexpected hope for comprehensive change.
In response to this injustice, Exodus Cry has put great energy and much prayer into developing this documentary that will provide not only awareness about this grave injustice; but awareness that produces understanding. We are praying that Nefarious: Merchant of Souls will be catalytic to raising up compassionate abolitionists burning with zeal for the justice of Jesus to be thrust to the forefront of this issue as a beacon of hope.”
We hope that you will join us for an upcoming screening near you. We pray that as we share the vision of our ministry and present this documentary, God will move His people to action. Please join us in this fight against human slavery!
