Many Christians work or volunteers as first responders (police, fire, rescue) and this video is designed for all emergency services personnel. However, anyone interested in helping victims of human trafficking may benefit.
The video is a concise, clear presentation that defines human trafficking, distinguishes it from human smuggling, and offers some guidance on identifying possible victims.

Author Kathi Macias notified NewHopeDigital.com of this resource. Her most recent series of novels focuses on the perpetrators, victims, rescuers, and others involved in the human trafficking crisis: Deliver Me from Evil, Special Delivery, and The Deliverer (scheduled for August release).
Tony Merida and David Platt discuss orphan care in the local church. Merida advocates a 3-prong strategy for church leaders: leading with the Word, leading by example, and leading with a simple plan of engagement. The Father to the fatherless will empower the local church to succeed in this mission, says Platt.
Tony Merida is coauthor with Rick Morton of Orphanology: Awakening to Gospel-Centered Adoption and Orphan Care. Merida is also professor of preaching at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary and lead pastor of Imago Dei Church in Raleigh, North Carolina. David Platt, pastor of the Church at Brook Hills, wrote the foreword to Orphanology. Merida, Morton, and Platt are all adoptive fathers.
There are a number of articles, videos, and podcasts addressing orphan care on NewHopeDigital.com. Here are just a few links:
The Mortons played an integral role in the cofounding of Promise 139, an international orphan-hosting ministry. Rick, coauthor of Orphanology, is now associate pastor for discipleship and equipping at Faith Baptist Church in Bartlett, Tennessee.
At the same time, halfway around the world in a Thai brothel, a young girl is rescued with the promise of being reunited with her younger sister who was adopted by an interracial couple in the States. They (the couple) are friends of the family of Jonathan Flannery, the Bible student to whom Mara now finds herself attracted.
Meanwhile, Jefe—Mara’s uncle who formerly held her as a sex slave in his San Diego brothel—seeks revenge for Mara’s testimony that put him behind bars for life.
If you have not already, you’ll want to read the action-packed first novel in the “Freedom” series, Deliver Me from Evil. Learn more about Mara, Jonathan, and Jefe—as well as the horrific and all too real problem of human trafficking, which stretches around the world even to our own neighborhoods.
The third and final novel in this series, The Deliverer, is scheduled for release in the fall of 2012.
Watch as Jennifer Kennedy Dean shares insights on the miracle of the Incarnation.
“Jesus came to earth and took upon Himself the constraints of space and time. Born unceremoniously in a stable, His birth was greeted with stable smells and cattle lows. But that hidden moment, noticed by no one of consequence in the world’s estimation, is the moment that defines all other moments. The Word became flesh and made His home among us.”—from Pursuing the Christ by Jennifer Kennedy Dean
Artist Roxanne Lingle also performs original music (“For Me”) with lyrics by Jennifer Kennedy Dean.
