The team has been up to a lot over the last few weeks, and Mark and TC are back to share. From Haiti, to West Africa, to the Pennsylvania Supreme Court, and to South America, the Lantern members have been everywhere working on investigations, police training, child pornography laws, and continuing to rescue in the midst of it all.
Previously on lantern rescue monitor and ended up trafficking and run it like Dictate anyway not only avoiding using her for his own game, but again other think many people to leave for fan and find justice for that now she had become part of our team to help find other people you have on right. I help them. I testimony that they had a teacher lantern risk ministry progress to achieve debris and white. It was a darkish trafficking. It's time the white the way to freedom. This is lantern. We told the stories we talk about rest, we empower you to do something about what should let it not be said I was silent when the all border you are in for a treat today lantern rescue. We finally are getting an update from the team as things in the world of Justin. I know how to describe it but market and you guys have really had a lot on a man yet so good to be on the show again.
It seems like it's been forever. I know that it's been several countries forever ago and a lot of places a lot of lot going on in the world and we can look for to talk about that today some of things have been happening in our world. First of all, in the Caribbean area. You know in Haiti. You know the assassination of the president. One of our water operators was significant helping with the investigation without you knowing.
Are you can help the country. What is bleeding out its presence been assassinated so you know been actually involved in helping our unit there and part of that investigation. Of course that was overtaken by earthquake and you know that at that moment we are regrouping as an organization as well as our people on the ground to say what can we do, you know, and we were able to deploy. You know, normally supplies a and good things are really critical.
We deployed our our Haitian unit takes a plastic on the hard-to-reach areas hard-to-reach in two ways.
One, there was some road closures from mudslides in the earthquake and then to James were doing interception so twice we find it deployed our police force to go deliver that in the course their arm so they could safely make that transportation and then they stayed and provided security. So those got something we can do this different than the normal humanitarian effort. You know, we collaborating works was so calm to open up some airstrips in the you know the west side of Haiti and out – that's just still going on as well forcefully during that time we had to close assets kidnapped was a personal friend of the whole team and in one of our key people there for intelligence.
He was kidnapped and then another was a fellow whose house I stayed in quite regularly in his niece was kidnapped and so you know we collaborate with Haitian authorities to handle that both people kidnapped were thankful released and were grateful that we were able to one of this is really negotiated down from get this.
I think they wanted originally $400,000. We negotiate down the like $4000. While these are the gangs that essentially rampant. Yep. And kidnapping is primary funding is crazy with asking 80 anyone again kidnapped some of the last like you know, $2 million. This is absurd where sometimes will show up, but not from us. Of course, but if we can't physically get there we can do some serious tracking this UN location of phone numbers and things like that and then try to pin point now where that is. And then you get involved and here's what the negotiate process needs to look like a back-and-forth to some other countries organizing operation with Atty. Gen.'s office actually had to teammates in that location. Just in the past week were looking at doing some training for about 230 policeman for you and also dragging from another country in West Africa unit with expandable operational locations requires necessary vehicles to run down some smugglers. One of the problems we had is that now, and that in West Africa our primary operation.
People are trying to avoid it by sneaking through the bush and going to the African bush so my task force director. There was like eight will have the vehicle that takes to run these people down so were able to pull that together get a vehicle for that expand that operation and you know that's just West Africa were so proud of our team. I mean we've been there since I think the last show but I know TC would say to word what is a product team because every day they are registering girls and arresting people you know and and we cannot talk, not talk about the big fly on the wall and that is Afghanistan now so out of here with you that were not to say here and we purposely is an organization avoided getting on Facebook social meeting saying all kinds of things because honestly my personal opinion is all those people that have done that cause great damage and harm if you knew exactly what was going on the ground in negotiations and everything that has to be done and said I know this you will raise money, but man it is a is a fine line to to travel on.
So I would just say we've been a major role player in some task force and advice movement well that what you guys could use her prayers because there is just a whole lot going on. This right is going going on and and and it takes resources yet is good to be, is it's a humanitarian crisis you know is well and it takes resources to rebuild common and maybe showing talk to me. I just got back from Asia and the Far East. So working hard there and then for our team and also Alan has been in the west part of the US training police in Colorado and now he's really active, you know training police here. Karen just finished recently. I know she was part of arguing for the spring court of Pennsylvania on some restrictions that they should have provided the digital means of fallen child pornography. So that's a pretty big ruling.
She's been part of and then TC has been in South America and he is been training police and SWAT commando so TC how do you see each other. We would just around the globe talking so this is all snagged on here and you want to catch us all up so to maybe three going on there. Mark said that Ecuador called their their commandos which is going to go eat government operation shall vehicle salt `blackjack medicine so that very very active part of the tree Scriptures and actually 12 go got saved 37 he changed lives, nose like you mission that was why was there I talked to major of their contract contract. There's not going so they don't have the tactical capabilities of the national police are 70 of them that have authority in our country.
Basically, without going on his knees begging for operational trading training intelligence gathering digital basically said he was coming straight through the jungle. This request is another country that they were begging for help. Talk to the girly officers was on the Colombian Ecuadorian border about trafficking their trafficking on that board, which is their northern border is Chinese were smugly rubbing up cannot discern which book the Chinese person between $80,000 US Route and the other people groups. The other nationalities coming through here in a consistent basis are good as well. Patient so there's this massive movement through Ecuador on the border you know the cardholder apparently don't people running them through their tactics. Article 2 box trucks going vehicle just ring around in the vehicle or T-bone or friend or vehicle.
Look them over and attack them so violent they need training they want training so much work to do the following. That is three weeks in coaster Rica in conversation they need to know how to eloquently fill so on the news meant. I know there are probably other groups out there doing the groundwork, another art not a lot.
It's kinda like telling Scripture says and harvest so to speak. No, just a lot of labors multipliers held by trainees other spokesman followed all of that with sometimes frustrating at times.
I would love you my hands on you. The bad guys know personally make them go ready to go or my victims to get them to where they need to go. Sometimes it look like that so penchant for me personally trying to set up salable work but sometimes like to be.
I like to do more and more involved in actual rescue rescue operator likes nothing just us trolling and excited is loading up your Anna knowing that working to the operation right now but like what TC saying is the length of time and training and sometimes year. It may take prior to that moment. As I was listening I was just thinking about you and we did those episodes go a few months ago saying we need operators we need right but we certainly need prayer like like we never have, because all these theaters were opening up across the world then wow we we need people to come into the situation and so I think it's a great time to remind them right before goes break Mark what one of the places you want to go if if they have this kind of training and they feel like they can help, sure, and everywhere we believe we know a lot of stones but we have to turn all over to find the right one in today that we send them to Debbie Debbie W.counter human trafficking joint task force.com.
I know it's a lot but give us the effort if you're serious about this in my heart for as well as skill set WW.counter human trafficking joint task force.com while I'm in an obviously we need to all be praying that God will send more people because it just sounds like there's always opportunities that are right here and right now this is things are just every country so you can tell you a lot, on the other side of this play is somewhat of a list of faith-based organization that conducts international rescue operations for people suffering from human trafficking lantern specializes in sending former US special operations law enforcement and intelligence personnel department with host nations and assist them in reading specialized units combat ongoing security, genocide, terrorism is a nonprofit charity. They offer services free of charge. Human trafficking is thrown into the second largest collective in the world reaching an estimated $50 billion activity rescue was developed rapidly to combat and operates through a train international network in order to rescue women and children, sex and labor slavery and facilitate gearing up for operations right now and you can see how you can support welcome back to lantern rescue.
In one episode, we have this week, for it is God's been doing so much around the world from Haiti to Asia and and down in South America and in Mark while sure all over guys got a smooth and hard and I'm so interested in what TC was just talking about intelligence of good work because I would just deployed eight were trying to give me deploy part of our transition team from Haiti to go help with ice dish innovations at our border and with an offer that now for two weeks. I got a great team member who speaks PO's a go-getter missionary for many years in that region, and the way we have a teammate that we try to to move to the border to help out either at our border or from the 80's habit. A lot of the Haitians that represent our border. Actually, TC has nailed intelligence right there coming from that region. They are they've been living there, got a cheap flight over the past that was provided to him. So a lot of people wondering how they came from Haiti out 80,000 patients will literally most of been in South America got his picture that they were pushed up to our border, so who knows. But we want to help them out and we will do all that we can for them.
The Lord really has been laying on our heart as a team to help out again in the Asia region we've TC's work there.
I've worked there. I would guess about a teammate set of work to that region rescued several hundred children and victims from labor, slavery, sex slavery, and so the time just never was right could never get things right especially coded.
There is a lot of restrictions that area that region. The world, but last minute was able to recently and after there is a please come now, you know, if you can come now. I can arrange all the means that you need to have with the government and then some of the things we talked off-line about were coming into play so got open the door like he always does what he wants it done is never easy times for like your pushing it open, but I'm always believe they don't want to start an open right so I deftly had pushed somebody. It opened up in the bay. The travel there and we have a fantastic operation in West Africa and we've got now I fantastic operation in that region of the world. And so we run border interventions as well as intelligence and the largest cities in that region and we have some task force members that are on our payroll per se supported by us and you as a listener they were 2470 combat encounter trafficking and just like TC did the description of the unit.
Every general director general IDP anybody. I sit down with when they find out who we are what we do there like home. Please help us you know it is not just a request for money is its request for partnership hope the feeling of we don't know what were doing over here were trying to do it. We have this enormous problem. Our children are being daily taken into other countries are there, you know there foolishly doing illegal immigration is leading to trafficking so helpless.
What do we do were small team in which we can help the whole world but were doing our best to help. What God puts in front of us. While I was there. We rescue 21 victims in the last week for lantern rescue. We had 21 rescues and three arrests in the Asia region seven rescues and five investigations in West Africa. That's just in one week and so are numbers every week are bumping up because were expanding our capabilities were doing that in faith. For now, it's a step of faith. A look at TV just training. Okay this has to be together all the time out what that's gonna take funding is provided for now I'm just I just know God did not take me halfway around the world put in for all these people both political and law enforcement, and then that it would not fall in the right direction so that it would should fall through so you know you just take that leap of faith in you. Go forward now and TCU if at some really interesting training. I personally, I bet my listeners would love to hear you know you said you'd lead some of these guys to Christ was a one of those stories.
It was just like mind blowing to you yeah want to go regarding border Gomer last night down there right about the three that looked like those created a lot of them never come. So it's not like you know simple if you know the spirit calls and the Lord will happen, but I get in contact with his younger regard to talk about the work they go through very dangerous when you committed the past and now I'm trying to be like you know like a mentor of mine work not be afraid to actually create cycles to process going so stoked you are burning a big deal. Very very important thing part of the process. Close my mind.
Days like what sharing with them that in three days when Scott given you to share scripturally with these guys. What group we hammered out one God's word is the word therefore authoritative authority what it says go like it or not. Number two faith alone in Christ alone know, I know what you're thinking.
There is only one way, one hammered out in different ways talk about the armor of God, and like that over and over and over we come back to those principles like that and when actually understand that God's word means what it says in the car. No other options that the Holy Spirit evaluate so you really up there right Marcus, I think about that God's chosen these guys to have the heart to go out and truly be his warriors and so you know I think it's really neat that he rewards him with with this understanding of what real life is about right yet it's is such an honor to be in those moments. At that time with those people and to work with people like TC and Alan and ran who in those moments, we realize that okay were not just helping them perform justice. Although that is a calling on them. They are righting wrongs in their country. But at that moment, we have the opportunity to give them the gospel to tell them about Jesus.
I mean I can't tell you are task force director, especially after man how much the word of God means to him like he ill asked me for certain verses all the time you know is threatened by voodoo is threatened by people want to kill and now that happens with a lot of people that we work with, and so the word of God is his our comfort and we get this sure that with famine, and you know that they're so excited by that. So yeah that's it.
That's a that's not in our job. That's not the bird that's the blessing part of it.
There's plenty of burden in our work.
Okay this like me, but in the blessing part is what TC was able to do with those commandos and active commando is to be able to share Jesus with him know that the day that you find generations arming the gospel to going forward and in a very beautiful way and and clearly enough people see his good works and and you know worship.
His father, so it's just really really really amazing and finish off. I know I'd love to just finish off rescue operation. I can talk on NTC future.
1 trillion. The Far East here region we were at a border operation and intercepted a man who lived appeared to be. It is 20s mid to late 20s but had a young girl with as we find out he had drugged and right.
The girl she was 14 years old and he was taking her to another country. The next country over. In order to force her to be his bride.
Yeah 14-year-old girl who entered a butcher shop, and was taken by you know muscleman like that is the reason we do what we do and I mean this is so you know this is this is the perpetrator, and are arrested here and to to realize that had gone on had us in that place at that time. At that moment. That little girl who I got a dollar the same age would be living a hill life right now. The guy cared enough for that. A lot of things up that we might be there at that moment. And I'm thankful that her life is going to be different and changed. He is getting it last. The prosecutor said they're going for 30 years for this guy. So God's support has meant that happens. Praise God, I mean absolutely TCU, trademark, network work when I think about his or her partner in Western Africa. The work there.
There being no region community unity came to our guy there called Frank became Frank. You know this little girl is being by father, and do something so there people avoiding Frank and his crew are people who are counting on you to do the right thing does anyone they got older girl father plugged the lease. As far as I know are still looking girl action be taken to the hospital physically made well enough to go in the process to get well. Her dad taught so so important for consistent and availability their ministry rescue goes to help again.
Marcus said little girl had no chance to rescue herself and then guided Frank rescue he's not going to build your life and photos of the beatings, evidence of the beatings and so I think it's going to drive the whole thing anybody missed work. Those there. Some people might do nothing about it so early) crew is just drive the bus. TC Mark was actually showing me those pictures and all my soul like if you're listening to what an opportunity. God is given you right is now on you know about this. To pray for this team and just ask yourself what what what what do you want me to do in response to an inheritance that you're doing this work around the world and I have the opportunity to hear about it. How would you have me respond and what an honor this really guys didn't get enough notice so much going on. So guys got bless another program powered by the Truth Network say what would you do if you were a new Christian and you didn't have a Bible like a Woolworth my way from Bible, the international you probably say well it happened my car I go to Christian bookstore or have one shipped to me with those word options say with the faith. I mean I need to know what it means to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus, you know, you would pray that someone, anyone would bring you a Bible. That's exactly the way it is for literally Christians around the world are part of her spiritual family there new to the faith they want to know what it means to grow in the grace and knowledge of Jesus but God has been plenty where it's very difficult to access a Bible and that's why the Truth Network and Bible league of teamed up to sing God's word to 3500 Bible is believers around the globe.
