Friction with perpetrators isn't the only thing the Lantern Team has to handle during missions. Friction with foreign teams, with government officials, and even with victims themselves are all things that must be overcome. They're back in country, and the team breaks down where and why the friction exists and shares some spiritual insights.
More from the Christian cargo. I am getting a pursuit where we hear how God takes no passion and uses it to build the kingdom your chosen Truth Network podcast is starting in just a few seconds. Enjoy it and share it but most of all, thank you for listening and for choosing The Truth Podcast Network network. This is the Truth Network previously on lantern rescue God with all general & ability number one lane of traffic moving but it was on the opposite side of the company was silicon a lot of time leaving things like that. One lane of traffic. Traffic stop on the way to cross all that lame again you are allowing only welcome to lantern risk ministry progress 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 arrestees we empower you to do something about it was once said that it not be said I was silent when they need to. We have an episode today on lantern rescue as we here you know so much in life. If it's not opposed, you wonder if it's of great value. The team at lantern rescue certainly faces opposition from all sorts of places sometimes where they don't really expected and such is the story of today as we get into it. Mark share what what happened. I good morning Robbie were always glad to be able to break in the electric development on what were doing right now we return no no and 22 Ray.
Now the next thing though we have some exciting things coming in imitation and request that we want to try to meet today show you mentioned the friction in the team talking about what we could share with folks today. I have a vision that the operations are like a storybook dairy trust that you know that everything goes well and everything is so easily that our only problem is the perpetrator, the drafter that's not true.
We run into all types of issues and want to start you off today by sharing it up friction that some people would may not even understand or are never followed up. When a tractor began to target a minor ballot about a lack supervision and insert country. There is a great skill inventory for that.
There are a lot of minors a lot of electric type of provision or accountability. Anybody even cared get there showing up in the evening or or whether going in the morning and so it's very easy for Chuck to get a girl like that and then they begin that process of intimidation, and even one of the things that we learned in the intimidation process we were doing a training for women's empowerment that the girls were used to being choked, but more than anything they were used to guns being pointed at them. I still remember them asking Alec to simply think we get that. But what we do when I point the gun and it literally that was the question and it was a shocking to realize that these victims the past victims now try to get controlled like they're still afraid of that, manipulated, appointed gun directly there manipulated or intimidated their told things like, I will kill you.
So there also and control process taught that law enforcement is evil. If you see a policeman, a law enforcement investigator anything you are to run their your enemy and are not to be trusted, and you know that show them in one of the countries we work in almost every other week. If not, every week we get a check for Martin there that so-and-so was shot literally just yesterday investigator was parked at a stoplight came up to the window, shot a minute it and that was an area that were actually talking about where this rescue happened so I lay on the ground were to tell you about that.
These are these are minors who do not have any supervision there manipulated or threatened their told the kill that they don't comply.
And then they are taught, the fair law enforcement so rescue just a few weeks ago were at that part of family law enforcement is not welcome where the threatening environment.
Again, it will deny darkness.
The output and quality mimic the building on the street clearing teams that work checking the street because chronic a lot of the party on the street as well and they would try to secure that street in the doorway will become long PC but I know that Albertine you get a girl who exactly what I just described intimidated shipping control.
She clearly has no supervision in the description of her clothing is that she's hardly close because the youth activity inside of that establishment should be in the building with Albertine and their extracting morale sheet sheet realized that a lot of men are bunched up on the street and they are and those are customers I believe. I believe that those were many of her customers weird those male not just the owner but very clear that those male even have control of her there bunched up in their literally encouraging her to resist the fight right and so never try to contain the situation by containing those men on the street and a bonnet for Cumberland as well is protect the girl.
The victim and she encounters that realizes probably once she has to resist law-enforcement. These are customers you know for the night so she could try to make a run for and she becomes even violent, so that we have the control.
Now that's not a theme that many people the storybook idea of arrest that is part of the friction that we have to overcome. I'm so thankful that we got her to the vehicle. One of the agents from the country female day. I don't know what she said to her.
She got her. She said something to her and instantly the girl attitude completely and everything changed and I think they did a good job ascribed her you are there for our skill. Both moment where you try to protect your team and be safe and protect the victim and that occur you know is just part of the quickies part of the story. I know that's what were talking about the day that's just an illustration of one of the faith that we have to overcome remnant that's disk often the case that there's friction where you don't really expected, yet you know when we talk about the rescue.
I think most people have an image that the only thing that the only people fighting back in during the entire time that Brenda country and the only people that were really combating high-traffic areas and that is not really the case. You know, sometimes the victims are so drugged and manipulated and brainwashed that they fight back until they are brought to faith effect on going on, you know, we have anything to go wrong.
We have different branches of the government that I work at a they're getting in conflict because they are so many little point in these nations. Over the time were in country thinking that really picking up and got off both overcome and Alan there were training obstacles, running shoes. You learn information they think they know better than population train years of operations.give us a good understanding of applying for situation. So some of the conjunction teammate better. Sometimes there's a distinction of thinking that community are taking 13 really not trying to get a metalevel nation more efficient and safe operation reading between boxes and training operations research, you better think I can't help but think of the church in general that it would be so easy. If it weren't for all these people and part of what you're working with really are the judges, and in those kind of things as well, which apparently sometimes is disappointing that we've all had that experience in country where the friction with the judge exalted man of character introducing just because of the things he looks a different direction will go to the money you take. So you know report with judges that were not so good and we would trust them for anything in the report with judges who are really good and are trying to do a good job in their region or district 5 minutes finding those people, subject only bike.
We can't communicate through an office and you got trustworthy you know if he would tell of the Bennett office on the weekend and get that information in a week yet could bite on the figure out what, guided the overcome accumulative and you know how to work together in Uganda. I know we share the Episode about it. We had a judges come immediately got a gun fight literally a street over you know with holy quickly find the that Doug deftly appointed friction as well know. Alan commented on the on the training. I wonder TPC could share a little bit about such a big part of what we do and in the preparation of rescue.
I'm sorry I get that marked. I know I'm a little confused, I'm just the listeners might be as well. You know I just don't picture judges the way that you guys picture judges you know I so can you kind of maybe ran take that and and explain to our listeners what it these judges in other countries.
It's a little different situation than an American Dragon that they divide over Capon and at courthouse, but in other countries. They are made to be a walking warrant.
So when we go getting grades instead of having a paper warrant, the judge complete and they are warrant itself but they are often thinking they're very painful developing. So the judges aren't the one that you would picture here. You know an older white man with gray hair sitting on the bench on their often bearing on self improvement out of any unity country.
They're very volatile and there's a lot of corruption so he is really hard to tell if the judge is there because actually qualified or 55 division or APA gang member elected really need him and get an ongoing operation with them. There's really no way to tell you not not might be a really hard concept for them in America. To picture a judges a gang member by the reality of a country. I can see the NTC back to the question about training for you. One thing that I have seen is good versus evil hundreds in the country were talking about. But in the country would talk about the weight of evil born of expediency. Seems like almost everybody we come in contact with judges to please to the beckons to John go to the violators know they're trying, almost like survival mode so anything goes in one almost everybody is living that way there's evil has a good downhill run so reflecting no lantern goes out looking like reflection because them friction to be a constant rubbish federalism show between good and evil.
In this case female.
Watch out for you guys sound strange bunch are probably thousands of people sort of things it lends itself to the friction and training is language and concepts American American idioms and concepts and we say certain things for somebody who's going to build a life that immediately brings up images you know she supposed to do things like that you get to the next place it doesn't translate even with the translator sometime so everything takes 2 to 3 times as long plus function were training don't have the concept so before retraining vacuum stretch might get you know a whole list of things gone unless for training therebetween being pretty smoky off on. I think Alan can jump in on this. Maybe 12:45 we had planned, pushing her where race to get back to actually more of this story I think would have secure as we rescue 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 hallucinations and assist them in reading specialized units combat ongoing security problem, genocide, terrorism, contract is a nonprofit charity. They offer services free of charge to contracting is thrown into the second largest criminal activity in the world reaching an estimated $50 billion in annual activity lantern rescue was developed rapidly to combat track and operates through a train international network in order to rescue women and children, sex and labor slavery and facilitates holistic gearing up for operations right now and you can go to lantern rescue.org see how you can support a welcome back to lantern rescue today were going over some of these rescues of the 22 victims that were recovered over the last month and get some insight today in the sum of the things come often in their resisted heavily by the evil one. So, that does not always necessarily does come from. You know the actual perpetrators and so as we were younger, even to get all this obviously takes the training and mark you had a little bit more to talk to him yet mutually the struggle of the language in coming that. All the countries we work and we can be proficient in their language that it does take increased time to you like to give the training and in the middle of the raid. I often just marveling at the goodness of God that were able to function with a group of people.
We don't speak their language, but you don't. So an argument little bit of humor. So many of the countries you work in their language for the words were like friend or foe or strictly one country. The word for John and Fran almost our lease in the English English version throughout the Fayette is very very close and more than one occasion, you know, I've seen a God and I use the word for friend and then call myself to get that right. You know, in the multiple moment and so those are moments of friction where we constantly do over bump around the road before raid were gonna cover a couple word for say this is how you say, you know that you say that you know clear up this word that work and you know that.
Moments that we have to make sure you know everybody understands what each of them saying to come particular words in particular phrases without the constant work in progress that were doing human story is honestly couple weeks ago I thought I would never deleted but I was in a country with the PC Alan pure we are doing the briefing that night and we always pray so that the matter you know we scrubs are not in the environment there. Along with this we are praying before-and-after faith to start the briefing we gave Alan get the grease out at the end of it. PC prayed in English while a Arab from Yemen translated into French and I member disbanding during the dark thinking only God would have heard that I have an American writing in English. There Yemen is translating that into French, you know, just the quite quite unique for God will those many people together from different areas of the world is absolutely beautiful and and speaking of beautiful, you know Alan you you see a spiritual reflection and in what happened with this young lady. Can you come to share that with our listeners share something that I know all the patient was initiated the establishment and straightness instrument more volatile. She was in Dalton really couldn't see the light. She should realize you were one person trying to extract the dismissal flavors and then teammate from the home to new home country female connector that I'm not sure which center want to mention earlier whatever was left was the sport she went from completely resistant volatile to come along.
:-) More than willing to get in the vehicle to be taken from that environment up to that point. She was darkness, and finally that whiteness darkness. It just changed everything. That's not us that that could only be Lord in that situation, assess amazing and TCU had to take on that as well know sometimes when good and evil, clashes of violent and no lover of the most violent swings like that happens, it happens a lot but communication. This young lady was really kind of overcome with love, consider creating an enemy again. This family was brought back to the question apartment where we were working out and dumpster standards. You still no progress on all of the little bit of the attention-getting book by large know she had subdued himself. But she still was just a scantily clad in the Mark turned his shirt on a broad no never know what's going to happen with number one ratio. I went on a long sleeved lecture turned well, but it deftly do the job premiums you know she had received gifts and love of all involved with 20 environment like a fist bump to reduce credit card agreement Outlook. I figure you only got my shirt course didn't understand anything that fiddling with it.
We actually had a laugh.
So things are great to watch tonight. I think it's also important for religions. Understand when we go and people want to hear how we did. I'm off now so I'm sure we all are. You know how many how many how many I know the solutions you're smart and make sure I want to understand when a team goes to anyone of these countries part of the job is overcoming this frictionless logistics language interpreters meetings. All of the things have to happen in order to hear the numbers again.
I just I think it's critical for folks to know the amount of work that John Mark Brennan Alan go through to make you sense And successfully to allow an Mark what would you add to sort of the end of that story, you know the ending. There's always a a difference in the appearance of those girls there.
They are true victims because these clubs don't exist without males and warning young girls and it's not bad and it's frightening to think about my own children are a girl being caught up in that it being used in that way there there dressed up, sometimes to look older there given.
We all dislike things then the beautiful picture is what PC was no referring to their and Alan to go back into the safe environment. Later that night, and then to start to realize and understand that law enforcement is good medium harm there. There simply trying to help were trying to give them other options and there will they take those options. How far will they take them all that you know work were happy to have them in our country have those transition teams are people who collect information for them that they give their counseling but to see them in those environments. Whether smiling and happy.
I've actually went back to the picture a few times in the last week where Alan years you're staying there holding a light first three no precious girl sitting in chair the you're back in the image and I just took the picture and all the girls were smiling and you guys are standing there and realize that those children, their children were in an environment that would we killed it would literally take their life if need be for pleasure of a man versus now where they were placed in that night and then safe environment and thankful for. I wish we could do more.
I wish we had more people.
I wish I wish there was more effort being put around the world against drafting against the protection of minors in the future that they deserve and should have another thing that jumps out at me Marcus that God had placed this woman right with them and she was left he has people all over the world and it's really really cool to me that the show is on the highlight how God has you know agents out there that are working and she was able to bring the light ran in in that situation, and so many times it sees connections Atlanta rescue makes with these other agents of God out there that make all the different and so as we in no time to wrap up this particular episode of can you come to share with us.
Mark or RAM in one where were coming. Gearing up to go to next door you have the right know you have received to date euro an invitation quote a letter to train in a country there's one or logistically. I don't know if we can do it until the beginning of next year, but were glad that that communication is happening in place but were actually headed out.
We've got a decent meeting set up in a Spanish-speaking country here in the next few weeks with you Justice Department lead and the new generals of police and this is a country really excited about our team coming in and working there and I will befall with formulating agreements there in the plan of action so we can all come to join with you guys and in prayer really enough for the team but also that God would raise up these other agents that are hungry enough really and thirsty enough to ask for help because it's those kind of communications right to come in. Mark Fitbit open up the doors that to provide this kind of training so that you know those agents that are out there all over the place will be able to continue when you guys aren't there yet absolutely it so it's vital that we train and help identify we fit individuals in and that first do the job you while we're there to talk about low point friction you finding the team that will actually do the job with you and not product for you know over turn in operation know that happens a lot.
So when you find one when you find out sweep .0 so beautiful and to see if you got a perspective on prayer for listeners that that that you think we should be praying. I do for for the but for even just Christians in general terms we desire as Christians as humans we desire.
Safety and comfort and prosperity we assume that when we do the right things. All those things are coming so we going to get into an outcome based manipulation of God in our and our idle attempt is us wanting where it should be based on how included got much bigger and that clearly got going on. He will bring every single event like a reasonable person down the very, very detail oriented one post notably to worship the creator created to do what sound and today forward to the next.
