I sit down with when they find out who we are what we do there like. Please help us. It is not just a request for money to request for partnership hope the feeling of what were doing. We have this problem are children being daily taken into other countries are there, foolishly doing illegal immigration, leading to trafficking so helpless.
What do we do were small team and we can help the whole world but were doing our best to help.
What God puts in front of us, welcome to lantern risk ministry program educated to bring light into the darkness of human trafficking. It's time to light the way to freedom. This is lantern rest we tell the stories we talk about rest.
As we empower you to do something about it said that it not be said I was silent when the welcome to lantern rescue today. Another treat really always marking the studio here with this just back from being out of the country and to see God at work in such circumstances is more than amazing and I've often heard that you, it's always good to ask out that second question you what you want to share today is like straight out of in our Bible lesson. I think that all I listers can benefit from human to show be a little different probably than our normal effort as a team and maybe it's just that you and I get to chat about how God is and how great he is made or solicited out there that can assimilate this into their life and understand it.
I think that every trip every operation that I've ever done in my life. I have a plan in mind of what's going to happen and what were going to do what I'm gonna do and then inevitably God has another task at hand that he wants to accomplish.
He thankfully brings that before us because usually this is the most awesome things. Those are the things that are just as miraculous is anything else and something will they will you guys rescue kids like what else could be so cool.
Listen, if you look at God and what he wants to do for humanity and for one soul, and for one moment it's miraculous is just amazing. I want to show you a picture can show the viewers but I travel to a country mealy at the ground had to do an 18 hour ride across the treacherous mountains, honestly again Saul vehicle go off a cliff, probably 500 feet into a river pressure. Nobody made that out. That cannot drive and if anybody's ever been to the Far East or there's regions. They know what I'm talking about. You don't you can Google you can see some of the riverbeds that all mountain ranges in there just death rides right I usually have to take so many motion sickness pills.
I'm not a motion sickness person but on those I take a lot just to keep from throwing up.
You know I had to do. 18 hour then it was take a little bit of a nap. Then get up and then actually cross into another country and get on a motorcycle and start right there and remedy cc this picture here.
Okay, this is an enormous swinging bridge yeah I see the reason the world is is pretty famous for swinging bridge. There might be a mild 3 miles long and you see this sky rise rope system from this bridge. This, it is probably 200 feet is probably 30 stories, at least in DC the individual at the top director I do is try listers I'm showing Robbie video on a motorcycle cross in this bridge and on the top of the bridge way up in the air at least 300 feet is a girl sitting on top and how she got there is just nobody knows so rashly going through the region and acid that was said wow, maybe she's making tick-tock video because you know in Italy's Far East Asia that listen. Tick-tock is big, they make tick-tock videos all time and I thought, yeah, maybe so, but something in that moment I I'm just can read times can be straight with you in that moment I felt so much oppression. Demonic oppression in the region and what came to my mind at that moment was there is unlikely that there is a holy spiritual person within a thousand miles of me like no there's nobody in so at that moment, I thought, wait a minute, is that girl going to commit suicide and God just spoke to me and I'm I'm a independent Baptist funnel is on a not a costless record sounds not right. I'm getting anymore more at that moment God spoke to me and said you are Holy Spirit field you are at this moment. At this time for reason I want you to pray for this girl. She can kill yourself. So I text my wife. You sit in the studio on the encrypted message to please pray for this girl she can commit suicide even though nobody told me that I just knew it and I started press the deer God. I realize I might be the only Holy Spirit field person in this whole region that is a mean your presence is in here that you're on mission which are omnipresent in your omnipotent, but I realize the responsibility I have and I want to pray that you will suppress all demonic activity on this girl that you will change her emotions that you will break through the barriers of the false religions idol worshiping in this area and that you will speak to her son just praying that always praying can't really hang around in the area because I am in a place that nobody really knows insisting that place in that area so I keep going but we come to a stop and were in a meeting with someone in my assets is hey know that the girls get a killer self. I said yeah I know that you say when you set up had the feeling I said, believer in Christ and I started to pray for her. So I said can you tell me what was happening so well that she still up there. Nobody knows what to do, know, and thereby scared to death him if you saw yeah yeah you think I'm going to get a man she did it right. Like all man Lord you want me to climb up there in my supposed to go back there and climb up this traverse this somehow because Lord you know I tore my meniscus. My knees are pretty like this. I tell you this needs a helicopter, not me right like what I do so or usually test me. I said okay what I'm willing to do it so I I tell the guy there said listen, I'm willing to climb that if if you can get an operator there counselor's anticancer whatever I'm willing to climb up there. I just need some rope carabiner a somebody big to belay for me, who can strap on in me for fall so I don't think they thought I was being honest look at bringing I kept saying no really I will will try it.
You have to see this so we we go back. They've now shut the whole area down.
Did you tell your wife be praying for me and I told her that because I'm praying for me on my dear God, give me 25-year-old needs so you knees of a 25-year-old police even in the gloves and everything. Please provided you know. So we go back to the present now closed it all down the whole region. The local Army is showing up. You know, there are forces in and things like that so we go into the area and then there are no lettuce on until my essence is know he's on the calm up there like old picture show for it, or whatever. So we go back and were getting to that that spot. And I'm thinking okay I will do this if we need to and to make a long story short, I was able to get close enough to make eye contact and climbed it. I did not climb the whole you climb some of that I did. I didn't have to climb very far. Thankfully, she obviously would cc somebody's clinic. She saw my face hundred percent and we made eye contact over that 3040 stories she started she got down, came down 22-year-old or 18-month-old baby and she has a baby with her know not whether bruschetta and a shadow lady and her husband was leaving her and she was climbing on just get, try to picture this, in my mind because I'm seeing this picture like you're watching her come down this thing yeah and I got to go to quickly embrace her that I needed to get there and all I wanted. Then at that point was I told my local.
I said I want you to make sure someone says I counseled her to say the God of Abraham thought so much of you that at the moment you climb this to kill yourself. He had an American Christian on a motorcycle.
Not even supposed to be in that country pass underneath you and begin a prayer chain for you is not about me being willing to climb up there. It's about the fact that God had me right there to pray at that moment for her and I hundred percent believe of all that happen, the most unified had to climb the whole thing to the top and carry her down. I would been a miracle for sure but I think the greater miracle is that we prayed and God restrained the oppression and I believe the demonic forces on her so that she was released from that and she came down like you can even then if that happened in America that's that's amazing. But to be a place where there is just no believer around and God to look straight that moment that one event so that that would all occur and that way is amazing for me.
It really is.
It's amazing for me a bit of anything I've done recently is not a lot going on from a conference. How long ago was this was two weeks ago, To exceed what I want to talk about that because as people live there day and day in day out. I mean people at time really well when I'm not doing thing in life, you're like, run around different countries, risking people in a mostly and if you just look for the God moments and be sensitive to how he wants you to praying speak and do.
There's all types of breakfast opportunities around absolutely be insensitive to what God's so we come back from this brace. You have our full attention like God has her full attention is having it again to see this bridge and have some idea of how high this girl was there and how God gave you that opportunity because it gives us opportunities to people all the time so we contrasted share with 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 lantern 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 facilitates gearing up for operations right now. See how you can support welcome back to just an awesome episode of lantern rescue over here from Mark today on recent events of prayer, but there's there's been other events of prayer, but this is to miss out on what happened on the break. As I was like man wait when you looked when I ask you Mark when you when you got that look right at 30 feet of what did you see in her eyes because she's looking down and should she see in a white America meantime, she probably didn't seem right. Yeah, I saw the whites of her eyes. She jolted she looked in, jolted down, looked at me in shock because you can imagine she is seen many non-Asian people in her whole life and this guy to get the white American that she was in shock. I made eye contact with her recommenders.
She was in shock and you gave her little hand sign that I didn't know that language, down it's different than how we would signal here in the crazy thing is for me is like. I know God didn't need me to pray but he went through a whole lot of events still orchestrate me there at that moment to pray and I know that our prayers give power to angelic forces but also thank you notice just you know Robbie jumped in and hear Sam as he put that on your heart to pray then did the natural thing is now. Send me right like that's it. I don't like you have been climbing up that thing. If you have rational thought.
It was settled to cognitive no, wait a minute about the oppression and in a recently also the kingdom because recently a friend of our team's particular friend of friends forcefully in his life and it was actually on that very day that was also in my mind fresh my mind so I made it clear that's what that that girl was there to take her life in any made it clear to me that I needed to pray and I needed to pray that the demonic forces be restrained and that person's life in any made it clear that I need to be willing to come up there if so, so be it does so much through prayer for us.
Another time I remember we were often in the Caribbean area.
In this particular country and we Were working in operation on a young girl but we kept encountering an older girl who was on the street.
I kept seeing her right and I came back and I told my wife about it so there's this girl Rachel. She is, but she's a beautiful girl and she's always for sale but I know she's not a minor. So technically, prostitution is legal there. My jurisdiction within it. 18 dear Marais Start What State You Remember like It Came Back. We Talked about It and Is Going Back. Sorry Again 3×3 Times. Finally, the Third Time Got Hit near the Head and Gave Him What You See, Out Of a Million People. By Letting You See This Prostitute for a Reason You Need to Do Something Is so Cute.
If I Were like Okay There's One of Those Moments, Robbie in Life.
