Human trafficking is a global problem and one of the world's most shameful crimes, affecting the lives of millions of people around the world and robbing them of their dignity. While the best known form of human trafficking is for the purpose of sexual exploitation, hundreds of thousands of victims are trafficked for the purposes of forced labor, domestic servitude, child begging, or the removal of their organs.
Additionally, when it comes to child brides, approximately 14 million girls under the age of 18 are married each year. If present trends continue, 142 million girls will be married over the next decade. These facts and statistics are staggering and have become a global crisis. Tune in Friday, September 25, 2015 @ 9 pm as we shed some light on some of the world's worst attrocities against human kind.

Join Dr. Brenda L. Bates and Donny Winter this Sunday, November 15th at 7 pm on the Universal Journeys Radio Show. Their guest will be the beautiful Deb DeRousse advocate for awareness, will be talking about Sex/Human Trafficking and the connection with Missing Persons. She is passionate about spreading awareness and works with Project Missing Search and Rescue LLC in Michigan. She came to the realization a few years ago that many of our missing children and adults across the United States is due to the growing business of Human Trafficking. Deb speaks out often on her own show Mystical Awakenings Radio on this growing problem. Human trafficking is at least a $32,000,000,000 per year industry and is tied with drugs for the most profitable criminal endeavor and is growing by the day. Awareness is the biggest key to putting an end to trafficking, many people have no idea how widespread this is. Yes, it can happen to you or your child, it is in your neighborhood!
Phone lines will be open for questions or to discuss the topic at hand. Each call is limited to five minutes in order to assist as many people as we can within the two hour show time period. Call in at (347) 850-8292 with a question or just to listen to the show.

Rachel is a survivor. After being kidnapped at the age of 4, Rachel returned home only to begin a journey through years of extreme violence. She traveled around North America being bought and sold out of hotels, motels, truck stops, warehouses, homes, mansions, the back of moving trucks, and even church basements, Rachel earned her traffickers millions of dollars all before she was old enough to vote. Her traffickers believed for enough cash nothing was off limits for their clients, so Rachel was thrown into a world of violent sadistic sex, alcohol, drugs, child ography and ritual abuse.
As a result of her experience, Rachel now encourages other survivors to overcome their trauma by reclaiming their lives. Rachel believes survivors must work together in order to successfully rid our communities of abuse. Throughout everything, Rachel recognizes the impact her relationship with Jesus had on her ability to survive and overcome all she experienced. Today, Rachel thrives as an active member of her community where she mentors at-risk youth, coaches other survivors, and promotes social justice. Rachel is unable to birth children of her own so she dedicates herself daily to nurturing kids who are generally tossed aside by a failed system.

Nancy Hartwell grew up in Tampa, Florida, and earned a degree in International Relations from American U. in Washington, D.C. She married a prominent attorney from Cameroon, where she lived and worked for almost 15 years.
Upon her return to the U.S., she wrote for The Washington Post on Capitol Hill (7 years) and was lead proposal writer for an international consulting company (14 years). She has traveled to 44 countries and speaks more than a dozen languages.
She has had two radio plays produced, one by the BBC and one by ORTF (France). Her best-selling, award-winning Human Trafficking Series of books includes Harem Slave -- which reached no. 7 in All Fiction on Amazon (nearly 3 million titles) -- Prince Ibrahim's Favorite, and Voices from the Harem. She is an internationally recognized authority on human trafficking, particularly the international slave trade focused on oil-rich countries of the Persian Gulf.
She is currently hard at work on a movie script.
Roughly 4 years ago Jennifer discovered there was a thing called human trafficking. Hearing about slavery weighed heavily on her heart and she began praying to God. God spoke to her heart saying, “Your steps are ordered, You will be at the right place, at the right time, with the right people, and I will carry you in the palm of my hand” This became her daily prayer.
After having received Human Trafficking 101, Speakers Bureau, and Street Outreach training she began volunteering through Salvation Army’s CORRC. In Oct 2014 she was hired as a Volunteer Coordinator. In Jan 2015 the Ohio task force rescued 18 Massage Parlor survivors. As Volunteer Coordinator she was able to care for these women.
Jennifer is still currently volunteering and has developed many friendships with survivors. After opening up one day she came to the realization that she had also been a victim of human trafficking.
Raised in a Christian home, but always feeling like she wasn't good enough. Raped at the age of eleven. Suffered multiple rapes in her teens and homelessness. She became a mother at seventeen. She felt pressured to marry, at twenty, after having another baby. He abused her mentally, physically, even tried to kill her. After he left her with nothing she worked in bars, strip clubs, a phone sex operator and as an escort.
Going on thirteen years later learning to accept that what happened to her, as a child, was of no fault of her own. Moving past the labels, currently on a journey of self-discovery, she has found her voice and can't keep silent anymore.
Today we will share the legacies of two individuals who have put themselves on the frontlines in the fight against the crimes of drug and human trafficking. Robert Mazur served 27 years as a Federal Special Agent for the IRS, Customs Service and Drug Enforcement Administration. Five of those years were spent under-cover as Bob Musella, a high-rolling mob-connected big shot who infiltrated the criminal hierarchy of Colombia’s drug cartels. Bob’s under-cover stings proved critical in the conviction of General Manuel Noriega and helped cripple an international multi-billion money laundering outfit that served drug lords like Pablo Escobar. His book, The Infiltrator, provides vivid and nail-biting details about his life in the criminal under-world, including events that led to a $500,000 contract being placed on his head.
More than three decades after India won freedom and independence from Great Britain, a little girl from the southern region of India was stolen from her family and became a slave. She was seven years old. She lost her home and her identity. She kept only her first name – Rani. When Rani lost her value to her slave owner, he sold her to an American woman who thought she was legally adopting an orphan. This adoption saved Rani’s life and the love and support she received in her new home has cultivated a commitment to become an advocate for the voiceless victims of human trafficking and a leader in the movement to end modern slavery.
