Currently I gently dig near Mema with storytime Mema and answered prayer for stories that point children to God on the Truth Network for kids your chosen Truth Network podcast is starting just a few seconds in Joliet. Share it the most of all, thank you for listening to The Truth Podcast Network. This is good Truth Network the following program contains sensitive content including accounts of sexual abuse listen. Discretion is advised previously on lantern rescue when you move onlooker people are going on alive anyway and they found our team and hold I'm not really important that people in the community recognize that as long and your help and I think that important notice: whether right you thinking about when to risk a ministry program to bring light into the darkness traffic.

It's time to light the way to freedom.

This is lantern. We told the stories we talk about rest, we empower you to do something about what should not be said I was silent when the well again were so blessed to be a national convention lantern rescue episodes of this when we been waiting all week to do so near and dear to everybody's heart of what's going on around the world right now will talk about Ukraine and some of the operations that are going on there. We got Mark Austin that are going to share and so since Mark is actually as as worst is working working working to help some folks get out of the country often want to give us a little bit of an update because you're headed to like you better get your work, but I hope I hope it's not too cold.

Hopefully will have to run to keep warm. So I'm headed to Warsaw next week and will supply up to the purpose of visit is to do assessment see where the holes are and see what we can plug this morning. Mark got an email from one of our international partners. The government and look for something clever Ukraine and then I'll be headed into Ukraine to work with our network that Mark is spent last two weeks with no sleep organizing put together all these folks out so you may want to put your fingers in Erica's once you hear this, you will be able to hear what I tell you I can't get off my mind all awake ever since. These guys told me this, but there are wall when these apparently and I can explain it like you guys can that when these kind of mass evacuees thing, especially when there's not one man on their project and the women can you kind of taken through that Eastern Europe was over the decades has been prematurely drafting for various of types of trafficking.

Now you have a situation where the government is not allowing males 18 to 65 out of the country.

There are sexually acting a draft that you have women and children without husbands or brothers or fathers going across to a country that they have no idea what's next. So it really allows for an opportunity for those walls to just work like any kind to give our listeners a picture and whose weight and formal traffickers better word, is that you know that there's a bunch traffickers waiting and when those traffickers Tara, how are they going to have others number different ways they could be doing it. You know, obviously, these these are vulnerable people that are looking for help right and if you just one example that you are there a lot of great people in the world that just want to help but you know those wolves like to think through situations so now you got about coming to a train station in Poland and you have good people. Probably some bad people hold up signs and held right here in my house or I don't want people to think that this is I don't want to sound alarm bells that don't stop trusting people. God is provided these folks in Poland and Romania. Various other countries an opportunity to help where they can. But among those good people are going to be people that are trying situation. If you look at the type traffickers on Eastern Europe people are commodity and now there's a situation where these these young girls young children to come cross-border if they get into a car with somebody with ill intent. And so here's what I'm in your listeners can really like if there were all one and how can we pray, how do we pray for this situation and for what's going on over there like all my goodness what a cool time to be praying for the team plan rescue and other organizations know what these people are meant for evil actually might call some of these bad people out or they can be because the way and prosecuted because you guys. The neat thing about your task force is it that you're not just there to stop at one adoption you're there to get to the heart of the whole system network and put them through the process of the government to actually have them put in jail and as high up as you can possibly get. And there's a lot of technology involved to write the beauty of what what what I've seen from Anna rescue is not just a few guys out there looking you guys have tools and skills as partners yeah really we have, you know, if we just take a second to get our activities. There is been to extract and move people immediately from the moment the invasion happened. We were blessed to have a driving sales of people you know and volunteers then some more government for military service types that assisted as well. We have successes that often admitted major. These outlets, but we can't really say what does work that it's been on everything from box everything but that's our best mechanism. Austin is going to go first.

I gotta be out of the country were trying national SWAT unit next week for some rage that we have to do, but the next couple weeks, but you were looking at increasing our capabilities. There are a couple ways. One is that at an undisclosed position inside the country. We currently have a safe house large one that we can leapfrog people around and were looking at establishing a warehouse again is gotta be held tightly because the website that gets out that it will vomit it out so with lies their government work work we've already been built but to the UK Ukrainian Army so it will increase Abbott's were really trying to support the civilians of the women and children that are dye DPs inside those one of the and you, dear buses, minivans and now some trucks right so that, in and outside of that Austin is good to be meeting with the governments of Poland and some surrounding countries to like you said to establish. Hopefully I'll a good effort is to be long-term is not to mark the day were looking long game. Robbie all day just like we do in all places we work were there to stay right were not weekend warriors. This is not an American, sickly or complex that you know X this and X that next everything else goes over gets in a fight.

All that you know I'm still yummy there's a lot of that this is although I'm sure you know all of the been there.

You didn't fight but that's what we try to do is pull some sustainable to counter evil where it's going opportunity to flourish to step up to step up to the plate for 1,000,000 1/2 refugees that are susceptible to all kinds of your advances in people and manipulation and just applicable. You know, I know people. There's an intact organization is the seed and do a lot of those wonderful things and that's a credit West affects people ourselves inside Ukraine, but we do what we do and we know we have to get there we have to train task force on law enforcement agencies to work with Steve down those who want to sell children existing structured law enforcement structure is completely overwhelmed like can you imagine if you live in Winston-Salem and then all of a sudden there's a million 1/2 extra people with nowhere to live.

Resources for money.

It's just one point Mark never likes to pat himself on the back this guy work were here in the Nashville conference room Marcos more when I was down here. Marcus probably got 82 hours because he's been there obviously it's it's daytime there when it's nighttime here and Mark is been nonstop on the phone and so he told some of our local staff to take a break as they just been working nonstop the local staff and the surrounding areas instead of instead of taking a break. These folks then went and got food and went down to the train station and set this amazing video to mark and we shared some of our staff is one of these years and are just shows that people with good hearts are other things you know and this is amazing is people are living in a war zone literally wars fleeing their country and then you got these these folks that are getting paid anything, just there to go and help and I think that's what the wrestling team get out. (Just what they do yell I know I know the listeners are again where were all kind overwhelmed. I know you guys are gone, you know what what how do I respond to this. Obviously prayers jumped right out there and so is your headed that way. Austin, how would you tell us to, you know the other day I sat down with my kids and I actually prefer these Russian soldiers you know these young kids that are out there being told to do evil things by a crazy person and their capital, and I think we just have to pray that God gives us all the strength to get through this. Those that can know the will to do right Ukrainian people is what and obviously the resources you guys couldn't have too much money right now. I made it people to fly everywhere you got some guys that are needed equipment. That's needs to be transported clearly this was in our yearly budget right diet plan for and so the needs are and is still 33 significant yearly evaluate each one is sidetracked, but some people just continue to house, now till the end of the winter but got three family groups. Now that their house the other house cars been stolen. Basically homeless. That's other things, had a small restaurant that were trying to address those owners want to give the there's never never short, shortness of what needs be done right and work in a blessed obviously to get the word out right.

While there is stuff going on like right this very second I guess that he's texting bus information I write the seconds. I watched it like I gotta fill this book this this stuff is is I just that part that also just blows my mind is how God put these contacts right for such a time as this. And these people are moving like right now is incredible euros behind the scenes in Ukraine and also in America tell this group of people, a lot of skill set.

You know, fighting to save the Ukrainian people in the way they know and that's you know, I will suggest also, you know, like, I'm sure I don't know a single understand a thing or they said the last there there hacking Russian so they're all there in a fight that this is intangible. I'm not sure how it works but they are doing is amazing. It is credible.

You know civilians all across the world. Skill set through their computers. Everybody is going to work with more work is able to go to work is probably the biggest thing he's ever continued to clever organizations. Now that's a good prayer) that these organizations will continue to that whole idea of a coalition of so I know your faith-based organizations, 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 combat ongoing security, genocide, terrorism is a nonprofit charity. They offer services free of charge. Human trafficking is thrown into the second largest like to 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 six labor slavery and facilitate gearing up for operations right now and see how you can support the following program contains sensitive content including accounts of sexual abuse of discretion is advised. Welcome back to lantern rescue in this show today for such a time as this is what I've seen over the last three days of things ramping up all like how amazing is it that God had for such a time as this in such a place as this like you actually listing right now have an opportunity to be on the front line of what God is doing around the world as lantern rescue is just in full operation mode right stuff is happening in the world like this very second. Everybody walks understanding situation is different places and a lot of people get their news from social media. What I wanted to say is this because I see I see him live. Of Christians who are looking for. The reason for the war. The reason for the invasion and their chasing down conspiracies chasing down and it's great to be an American is great Debbie open-minded is great to talk about all those they but I am just asking the Christian American public. Put that aside and do not dismiss.

There are women and children readily suffering tens of thousands. They are leaving their 45-year-old husband not knowing if there ever. There are men who are working a little bit in the daytime and then they are literally fighting to protect their city.

The rest of the time. There are there's a maternity ward that was blown up. There is credible casualties in the death just IDP stop Jason conspiracy theory so much that you excuse yourself from the situation. Christian well know know you know you know the president needs these people to so is actually good guy. I can't believe that I might people tell me put the good guy don't know you bless the voice okay like what the world nobody had is a propaganda war. I know people I know former generals and people are spending tens of millions of dollars a month right now propaganda war to keep doing that and I'm okay with show if they want to show some, you know, entertainment person Ukraine holding the gun.

It inspires the local people, let it inspires the local Americans showed up over here calling her name to sit here and they promote a conspiracy or knowledge they think they have.

They are clueless about the way the world works. Even some of our highest you know news and they have no idea how war they don't know the order for don't understand what happened in a lot of places here's what I can understand as a Christian people are suffering and they should be using their platform not to do that conspiracy stuff to talk about how do we help these people how to love these people groups are doing and doing the right will give money to the American Christian response should be totally about the people I doubt try to say no Mark, I have never seen that kind of like East just people begging to be personal recordings going.

We heard you're helping people.

Can you help me there's no less than probably 10 people in the last three days that walked up to found one of us found one other team members. We've got people that employees so I think that's from my perspective about what you just heard was this is a guy who has the diplomatic connections. This is a guy dollars for this always different places and and has people on the ground given information and so this is a great source of information at your list. Truth is hard to find. You know how you miss this truth, people are hurting people need our help walls around the door and the moment is now that we could move in and do something, pray, use our resources and be a light which is what I hear you doing Mark, who always is talk about the local want to bring out one incredible in Ukraine, 25, 30 oh girl yeah they can leave right.

There are so many that have not left who are the hands and feet of Jesus right there like driving on right straight into a conflict not not a conflict that was at rest and opening date heart mail me. This is a 20, 26-year-old girl and she's like okay do I move now on the street. Should I move now what I wait like you how frustrating it is right here and operate. We give him credit only.

If you have their hands on an oversight route options very life based on the last part of the technology that we talked about earlier that you guys have access to which I know God made this available but my mind without their straight up honest one brief that I get to do one is about a $70,000 brief is being given to its five satellite from friends are wonderful friends that doesn't normally go to people right and so when you say brief again I apologize for an Intel bracelet like an analysis of your move from point A to point B between point A to point B guys are right now.

What browser you know what is it look like there is a void that so you begin your Benjamin intelligencer exactly where people are and how you can get people's favorite and so we talk about the value of that you can even put it in money that's just as God's favor. Knowing what is needed for no what is got us trying to do. There is credible euros and I had one here did a lot of operations and got there was nobody else on the streets around her as the last last man last woman standing and and I promise is like when your last one I promise you will get you that I was a nurse tonight as I get out this one individual credible work and now she's the last one standing in the streets that area I get back down now so she's probably on expression of our thanks and everything and so what what you're hearing.

And again, I'm not. I don't know what is out there. I'm thrilled that I get from you guys is this is a very fluid very active war is going on right now to try it on its hot and heavy. And there's there's like battles. I just saw an article this morning that they were talking about their Syrians with the Russian president talk to certain conflict everything they can at this stage out with Dave Johnson for the live show this is recorded as this is open now. This is open intelligence try to get the last two hours morning imminent threat to life location on Blairs have the next 24 hours. Joe suggested Blairs 24 hours and locations that I was best part is recorded as a personal operating operation die so will people were women and children. People who were toddlers grew up with the school live the life I still play the sport school looking for a job, having a career and now they've been invaded. No matter what the conspiracy or whatever the theory is war in America's media that is a mom and dad were hugging and kissing each other goodbye SCC is just to three children live with his wife and he doesn't know what forms coming her way. In the next country and he staying there real people with real needs. And again you can help her, but I just heard you hear how God is literally providing people with information that are in a situation really help right that are better in a situation to do something that organizations not just lantern right there some other great I can keep up with the ones that R&Rů Say what Ukraine that going to work with. Once I have that local your presence in connection right here that you hear the need for prayer like like you said Austin that continued collaboration because the enemy the way defeat so many times he cuts off communication that is by ourselves on our own lives and we also see it global roughly right more than collaborations flowing. I hope everybody use passion marks voice and data for I have never heard of you know where he had stuffed that he seen was that was anger and frustration. That's real emotion because there's real people. He can put this with absolutely that in a lot of folks in Ukraine or whatever, but fortunately he knows these people personally and so when he says they have a job yet. I have a wife yeah I mean you know when you know the person is our friend or somebody work with. No, that's serious I hate hate hate Robichaud, but I think this is just critical information. I'm so delighted that God provided this for you listening today that you would know better how to pray and how to get engagement and think about how would you what was what's response for me to this information. What can I do connect me to to help these people. However, power that can happen. Mark could you finish this. The prayer got so incredibly good discomfort, secure place. We realize that there are those your kingdom you created who are suffering in a mighty way.the depth of their spirit heart is forgotten by you, Lord, in ways that you do see before and was always the way you reach out and demonstrate yourself to people. I pray that you thought I beg that your spirit will throughout Ukraine that region that you would feel good, evil man of always wanted control more and do more and there's a lot of this world.

So Lord I ask that you control the Kings court would remove this conflict that is so overwhelming is so overwhelming the surrounding nations, all those will work so only ask for me. Efforts in Jesus name. This is the Truth Network
