I just went out in the van with the camera guys to shoot more footage in the nightclubs of Cambodia. Hidden cameras on their glasses & watches. How CRAZYCOOL is THAT?!
What’s not cool are the pictures they come back with…so awful.
But I wanted to let you know that the final filming went so well today. :) I am beyond pleased and so honored to be a part of ending this evil. Thank you all from the bottom of my heart for your prayers and support each step of the way.
You will be able to watch everything in a couple of months…I am so excited for you to join me everywhere I have just walked and to hear the stories I have heard.
I will post all the details when the shows air, no worries! Stay tuned to my blog and social media. ♥
Sex trafficking is becoming a hot topic in the world today as more and more people are gaining awareness and understanding the impact of this evil reality around our world and in our own communities. Next month (December 2012), I pause from my “Break The Silence” tour, speaking out about sexual abuse at U.S. Colleges & Universities, and I will instead take my VOICE overseas to Cambodia to address the issue of child sex trafficking in the most direct way.
Cambodia is known to have one of the highest rates of child sex trafficking in the world.
I will arrive with a small film crew to tell the story of child sex trafficking in the nation of Cambodia. We will seek to shed light into a very dark part of our world with the purpose of rescue and restoration for these precious lives. I will spend 10 days there, going into the very brothels where human traffickers are operating, gathering stories and uncovering the evil that is being done to these little ones who are enslaved, being sold for sex.
Trafficking is nothing short of modern day slavery.
A child’s tragic journey into sex slavery often begins within a family struggling to survive — the average Cambodian lives on $360 USD a year — and some children are sold by their own parents. Other kids are lured by what they are lead to believe will be a legitimate job like waitressing, but once they are taken, they are held captive, beaten, starved and forced into servicing 10, 20, 50 men a day for all kinds of sex acts…many of these customers are wealthy American tourists.
Something must be done.
Luke 4:18 describes some of my mission: “The Spirit of the Lord is on me, because he has anointed me to proclaim good news to the poor. He has sent me to proclaim freedom for the prisoners and recovery of sight for the blind, to set the oppressed free…”
I am asking you as my network of support to cover me in prayer as I travel to Cambodia in the month of December. Pray for safety and protection. Pray that the work I do will help reach, rescue and restore the young girls who are being enslaved there. Please pray for my family, as I will have a hard time leaving them for the duration of this mission. Pray for the film crew from Rescue Life (Dallas, TX); and pray especially for all of the little ones I will encounter in Cambodia. May God’s Kingdom break into this place, may hope be unveiled, freedom be made known, restoration be made possible, and may we all be changed.
Mother Teresa once said: “I alone cannot change the world, but I can cast a stone across the waters that makes many ripples.”
Thank you, again and again, for playing part of the ripple effect of this great work. I cannot imagine doing any of it without you. Thank you for the sweet support over the years, for your prayers for this organization and all the lives it reaches; and thank you for joining me in spirit as I embark on this important mission in a couple of weeks. I plan to write again prior to my departure, and I invite you to follow me on Twitter and Facebook for updates throughout this mission to Cambodia.
On July 26th, Nicole Bromley will speak at Colorado Christian University, sharing personal story and introducing the new Emmy award-winning documentary “Yellow Roses” (Navpress).
This film is narrated by both Nicole and Darrin Hoover and directed by Mike Edwards. “Yellow Roses” deals with the real issues girls face daily: peer pressure, troubled relationships, and abuse. It has hit a nerve with people worldwide, having been shown at the United Nations, screened at film festivals, broadcast on television, and endorsed by national and international faith-based organizations.
It has helped young women find their voice. But most of all it offers the hope that comes with discovering one’s true identity in Jesus Christ.
Churches, parents, ministry leaders, and even students have been impacted by these stories: join us for this free screening, and learn how you can help young women embrace the joy, freedom, and new beginnings found in Christ.
