Your chosen Truth Network podcast is starting in just a few seconds. Enjoy it, share it, but most of all, thank you for listening to the truth. Podcast network. This is good Truth Network the following program contains sensitive content listener discretion is advised previously on lantern rescue, but it turns out when we got to the point here later back. The only thing that was in her folder for the Memphis Police Department was missing persons flyer and investigator added. The reason why was because she was taken an accounting recorded in the city and then her body was found in Mississippi so you have multiple different jurisdictions Police Department's share of agencies involved in the data communicated to share information. Because of that, no evidence, just lost things better. I was a big driving force for approval. Why welcome to lantern risk ministry program dedicated to bringing 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 and we empower you to do something about it was once said, let it not be said I was silent when the I would imagine you are going to be as intrigued as I am at what we have for you today on lantern rescues were actually have any live in the Ukraine lantern rescue and mark itů The whole lot going on. I'm really glad our listeners can get up to date on on some information that really we could only get through this source yet. Robert thrilled to be on the show today. I know it's been a while since we've done show just been so busy and I think after this you will do an update on everything in the world were active in right now but I am really excited because only the line here today is a new friend and hero. I think in a person that lantern rescue is glad to be working with. Her name is Annie and so Annie is in the Ukraine right now and she is been helping to run a warehouse and shelter effort for us. I want to preface this little bit so it's a lot of humanitarian work that wouldn't talk about today and is so important to be done right now in the Ukraine, especially in conflict, war zone area.
So that's what were to be talking about today is what is the best way we can serve the people. How do we as American Christians.
Americans make a difference there when sometimes we may feel like boy this is a lost cause but we know it's not. And we know there are people who have hope and we want to help them as much as possible so anyone can introduce yourself out. Now that's wonderful in your role with lantern rescue. What is it that you actually are doing right now concept a chance stop us now so we can have our listeners understand. Annie is a key part of what were doing there and she is one of seven full-time workers that we employee and then there's 32 and he is about 50 volunteers.
Now that correct. I think I jobs on how to yes so we just cross our listeners know we we ran an extraction team Robbie with the measured Ukraine.
We still have that availability. We moved a lot of people from a lot of very difficult situations, not just you know place like the not at all like removing people from the Far East under Russian occupied territory.
And I'm thankful for the analyst and the intelligence that was given to us by a lot of agencies and groups who stepped in to help us do those extractions in the midst of all that really became evident that there was a humanitarian right and so on you and the staff there for us has been able to put like she said a warehouse in a hotspot. This is several hundred kilometers in Ukraine and it is not back before catching her breath is the place where people are in a move away quickly.
You know, and so they don't provide shelter with that warehouse with the goods that she talked about why that's so important for counter trafficking in helping vulnerable people is that when you are fleeing when you're in IDP or refugee in your fleeing a conflict area harness over the years that first initial contact with somebody sets the stage for much of the rest of your journey or your life and so is very important to us as they are first met with somebody who is vetted somebody who is a Christian somebody who is going to take care of them the best they can, somebody's gonna give them the gospel. Somebody is asking to give him we have information that Annie has helped us translate and documentation is to give them this is good. Be careful. There is a trafficking problems you know you are vulnerable person to carefully go to the border that you watch out for these things. If you have any problems call these people right. Any you guys also are doing a great job.
I know that you register people as well. Can you do, comment on that for our listeners as well off now, I'm just not seeing Tommy know. Can you also comment you know supporting that we track and register people, especially when it comes to vulnerable people and there is no established national Dragon think Motorola's front of her Microsoft trying to establish one, but you know what were doing the best that we can with IDP's are coming our warehouse.
Can you come to speak on that registration process and what you guys are doing what's best to just check this out 68 nights eight job, job out there is no government refugee program establish right now you yeah you're right Rob, you probably know what listeners you can you come to speak to the condition.
The physical condition and people understand this, Annie and our team are in a warehouse is very very close to the hotspots were not far back of the border and so the people are saying are people who are fleeing the boss or homes have lost a lot of they come with hardly anything in it and can you kind of give us maybe a story or description of their physical well-being or emotional well-being. Spiritual tests just to close ties to our house house just days but lacks no alts so stressed they couldn't come back because I don't know what is so is mostly just not so changed, it will Now not close I saw a guy I experienced the presence of God. Now talk on sponsors have asked us go out and thousands out so we haven't typed out every story every choice of that I'm wondering is there orphans or children without parents are from understand as they flee. A lot of times you have children that don't know her and her parents on and you can walk us through what that's like stations which make close so we can't help but have partnership so help me out just as just go out and help.
I know were were feeding 400 to 500 people.
People per day in the area that you're in, you know, we've got a dog, a record of how many we think refugees are in the area by your calculations with information intelligence that you have how many refugees are in the area of just just the warehouse to talk to me sounds tricky's house register because they make all children something that's good interest rates 30,000 were probably run. We had a break in the outlook you have to break them back and talk little bit about the team and some of the things involved in mind we will be right back.

Right now, which is a hair-raising mark. I know you like to share some more details about the team and so when asked any year to just comment on what she did before this. The team the seven that we employ know what are some of their backgrounds and I think also people should understand that the females on this team. They have the availability to leave the country not stay in. They have chosen to save his point and do so much good so any what did you do before this invasion from Russia as well as the other team members's town tax crops also put all Ice alabaster contract of is on single mothers also want the church was helping out that what children should have strong fiscal time let's talk budgets and now make out homeless people on market but also now calls out out Army soldiers so 84 Joyce St.'s choice states test God's text now if I was always focusing on helping people social quote teaching preaching is not all it will not close down say nothing. Sometimes I one of the things that a lot of people commented to me because even when one of a couple of our teammates were at the border and I said hey connect with those were employing to run a warehouse you here they are. The comment I got back was.
While these are young people. These these are 2526 27-year-old, and much of the volunteers that after all it is very young and I'm so were so proud of it over so proud that they are despite their age and their choices with your wisdom and dedication in the.
