It is a reality that our country today continues to be moretarnished with corruption. Imagine getting stolen from your front porch in broaddaylight. The next moment you are confined in a room with stranger imposing onyour personal space. There is nowhere to run or escape from this awfulnightmare, without any parent or family to rescue you. One woman shared asimilar story after being noticed during her emotional pain. “Along a Gulf Coast road, one day I saw a lady who began toweep and cry. At an altar call I prayed and for her”,” said Jeanine Stills, Missionaryfor Assembly of God Church who used to be an Associate Pastor in McAllen,Texas, ten miles from Mexico. {{more}} Jeanine Still is a representative of nations on a mission toinform each church about the children that are affected by human trafficking.She is appointed missionary of the Assembly of God,” said New Life TemplePastor Esekiel Pecina. It is what is happening in the United States. Here, theyare robbing teenagers from the stores.” “It’s so good to be in Abilene. I drove from Tulsa thismorning. I met your pastor at a district council, and he graciously invited meto you. I was Associate Pastor in McAllen, TX ten miles from Mexico. I was theminority there. It was the Hispanic people that helped me heal from lots ofwounds. My husband went to heaven about nine years ago,” Still said. “Thank youfor listening to me speak on awareness of prevention of sex trafficking. I quit singing “God Bless America” and started singing “GodSave America” I asked God, “Why are you letting us as a country destroy theselittle girls. It’s because of the intercessors that are going to the othercountries. It is up to us and our country to make some changes. We have to know that 27 million people areheld in some type of slavery and we thought that slavery was abolished. It isup to us to get the gospel of Jesus to these girls.” said Stills. The US is thebiggest one of the three largest slave traders in the world. Girls are luredfrom other countries with false proposal of a job or being kidnapped. Therehave been 100 thousand slaves in our country that was settled for religion. Theaverage ages of the girls are from 12 to 14 years old. There are even now asyoung as 5-7 years olds. 3-4 men will buy this 5-7 year old girl and theymolest her all weekend and if she lives, she will go another round. The averagelifespan is seven years old. It is a cruel world and we do not understand whypeople would do this to children.” “The Secretary of State made a statement in 2007. She said,”Human trafficking is not just a problem of sex bondage, but it fuels theepidemic of sex violence of our women”…said Stills. According to Stills, she hesitated at first when she wasdeciding to go into the ministry of speaking out for this cause of trying tohelp these children because of the high number of those affected by thetrafficking compared to the low number of churches. She gave a scripture that describes thesegirls in bondage: Isaiah 42:22. “I did not want to do it. I was overwhelmed with the numberof the girls. There were 300 thousand of these girls. We and God are the majority. Always, is theword of God so he gives the glory.” Hesaid, “I will do it”. God says, we will win in Jesus.” Stills said. “I was speaking at a HispanicWoman’s Conference. We will win!!! It was like a bolt of lightning, and I knowwe will win because we are the majority.” The information she gave to the congregation and for the communitiesare four points that she claims God gave her to share, and how to turn theproblem of the epidemic around… 1)Prayer…has to start in our homes, work, andchurches 2)Start at home…a God centered home made surechildren know about God, and children will spend eternity in heaven or hell. Wehave to make sure they know right from wrong. 3)Tell everyone about sex trafficking. “Getinformation about groups that are volunteering and get involved. We can eitherbe part of the problem or the solution. 4) “We need to have a God centered home and make sure thatchildren know about God, and children will spend eternity in heaven or hell. Everyoneknows what goes on behind closed doors. Keep pornography out of the house;children can start at home viewing it. Parents need to communicate to theirchildren what is right from wrong. We Get information about groups that arevolunteer and get involved. We caneither be part of the problem or the solution. 20% of all sex traffickingvictims are found in Texas. Abilene isthe bible belt buckle and this is where we have had so many revivals. That iswhy Satan has set up camp here.” Stills said.”I was talking to a friend from India; he told me that we need to havemarches against this; get online, and put them on the internet with permission…he said to me. “Predators are going to do everything they can, but we can.They hang out at clubs, restraints, schools, and even good neighborhoods. He that will harm one of his little ones isbetter to put a concrete slab on them and lock them away forever,” Still said. “The greatest thing God ever did for me is give me a child.He is my heritage. You have to be very selective in the home you children gointo. Many children have been molested in their friend’s homes. I am not sureif it would be safe for them to spend a night anymore. Sadly, we don’t live inthe world I grew up in anymore,” Still said.
