On September 23, 2018, the 12th Annual Day of Prayer for the victims of human trafficking was held in the Salvation Army all over the world, as well as in Russia. The Salvation Army worldwide is committed to fighting with human trafficking.
During this day, salvationists around the world united in prayer and asked the Lord to bring hope and freedom to a huge number of people who especially need His mercy and grace. We prayed that as many people as possible were aware of this problem; that christians should be actively involved in educational activities, as well as there would be the resources to support the victims; and wisdom and strength for those who work among the victims.
On this day, salvationists from different cities of Russia held a flashmob in social networks with a call not to be indifferent and not to be silent about this problem.
Human trafficking has become a global problem that exists in all countries of the world, and profits from human trafficking bring billions of dollars to criminal syndicates every year.
Although the terminology may be new, human trafficking is not a new concept. We can also find examples of human trafficking in the Bible: from the story of Joseph and his brothers (Genesis 37-50).
We in the Salvation Army continue to pray for a solution to this problem and invite you to join our prayers.
