HE HAS ALWAYS LOVED MUSIC.

IT HAS BEEN A BLESSING SO MANY

PEOPLE ARE TOUCH LITTLE

ONE, MY BLESSING SO, JUST HOPING

WE CAN CONTINUE TO DO WHAT GOD

HAS US TO DO.

IT HAS BEEN WONDERFUL, FABULOUS.

I IMAGINE THOSE BLESSINGS FOR

YOU THROUGH HIM CAME LONG BEFORE

THE REST OF THE WORLD STARTED

SEEING.

ABSOLUTELY.

HOWEVER IT IS AMAZING YOU DON'T

REALLY SEE WHAT YOU HAVE, THAT

GIFT THAT YOU HAVE UNTIL OTHER

PEOPLE START COMMENTING AND TO

BE REAL, ALMOST LIKE CALEB, BE

QUIET, CLOSE THE DOOR UNTIL

SOMEBODY ELSE CAN APPRECIATE AND

YOU KNOW, YOU STOP AND PAY

ATTENTION.

WE COULDN'T HELP BUT TO PAY

ATTENTION WHEN CALEB ALLOWED US

LIVES, WHAT HIS GIFT HAS DONE

SEX TRAFFICKING IN AMERICA'S

HEART LAND, SEE HOW A CHURCH IS

RUNNING TO STOP SEX SLAVERY

AFTER THIS.

HARD TO BELIEVE MORE THAN 40

MILLION PEOPLE ARE VICTIMS OF

MILLION PEOPLE ARE VICTIMS OF

SOME TYPE OF SLAVERY RIGHT HERE

IN 2017.

ESTIMATED 12 MILLION OF THEM ARE

CHILDREN.

MANY AMERICANS SEE THIS AS A

FOREIGN PROBLEM.

SEX TRAFFIC SEX TRAFFICKING IS A

MAJOR PROBLEM HERE IN THE UNITED

STATES.

THAT IS LEAVING CHURCHES TO

FIGHT BACK IN UNIQUE WAYS.

WHEN I FIRST HEARD ABOUT THE

WHOLE CONCEPT OF HUMAN

TRAFFICKING THAT A CHILD

LITERALLY WOULD BE SOLD FOR SEX,

MY HEART BROKE.

HARSH REALITY OF IT HAPPENING

IN HIS CITY FORCED THIS PASTOR

TO TAKE ACTION.

SCRIPTURE SAYS WE MUST RESCUE

PERISHING, HOLD BACK THOSE GOING

TO SLAUGHTERING, SPEAK UP FOR

THE DEFENSELESS, WIDOW, ORPHAN.

ANSWER TO THE CHALLENGE IS

CALLED RUN TO STOP IT.

ANNUAL EVENT ENCOURAGES HIS

CHURCH, ROCK OF 5K TO USE THE

MARATHONS AS TO WAY TO SPREAD

AWARENESS AND RAISE MONEY TO

FIGHT HUMAN TRAFFICKING.

WE HAVE PEOPLE NEVER RUNNERS

BEFORE NOW RUN.

WE HAVE A GUY NOW DOING 30 MILE

RUNS AND LONGER.

AMAZING.

ALSO IMPRESSIVE, THE AMOUNT

OF MONEY.

WE WERE ABLE TO GIVE THEM A

CHECK FOR 100,000.

ROCK OF KC PARTNERED WITH

EXODUS CRY THROUGH CHRIST

CENTERED PREVENTION,

INTERVENTION AND WHOLISTIC

RESTORATION.

WE USED TO SAY 27 MILLION

PEOPLE IN SLAVERY TODAY.

RECENT STATISTIC SAID ACTUALLY

MORE THAN 46 MILLION.

NUMBERS, WHO CAN KNOW?

THERE IS A CULTURAL PHENOMENON.

EXODUS PRESIDENT SAYS HUMAN

TRAFFICKINGERS USE MAJOR --

THERE ARE ALL KINDS OF

DIFFERENT EXPRESSIONS OF

TRAFFICKING HAPPENING MIDST OF

THE BIBLE BELT.

THEY INFILTRATE THE PLACES TO

FIND VICTIMS HELD IN BONDAGE.

ALL THE MORE REASON THE ROCK OF

KC AND MEMBERS RUN TO STOP IT.

WHEN I RUN, I THINK ABOUT

WHAT I AM RUNNING FOR.

SO YEAH, YOU CAN, IT GIVES YOU

MOTIVATION.

FIRST OF ALL, STOP THE

SLAVERY ITSELF.

SECONDLY, WE WANT TO RESTORE

THOSE EFFECTED BY THE SLAVERY.

IT IS NOT JUST HEY, LET'S STOP

IT, HEY, YOU ARE FREE.

LET'S WORK THE INSIDE ISSUES

OUT.

LET'S RESTORE YOU TO YOUR

GOD-GIVEN GIFTS AND LIFE.

IT IS GRUELLING.

I HAVE DONE THE HALF MARATHONS,

13 MILES AND THE TRAINING FOR IT

IS TERRIBLE WHEN YOU ARE RUNNING

DOWN THE ROAD AND WANT TO STOP.

THAT IS WHAT I THINK ABOUT.

I AM NOT GOING THROUGH HALF THE

AMOUNT OF PAIN THESE GIRLS ARE

GOING THROUGH NOW.

GRATEFUL FOR SUPPORT, MORE

THAN ONE CONGREGATION NEEDS TO

JOIN THE FIGHT.

I THANK GOD FOR ROCK OF KC

CHURCH.

THEY HAVE BEEN AWAKENED TO THIS,

THEY SEE IT.

WE CAN'T JUST DO NOTHING.

THEY HAVE REALLY PUT ALL THEIR

CHIPS IN SO TO SPEAK TO COMMIT

THEMSELVES TO MAKE A DIFFERENCE

IN THIS ISSUE.

THAT IS SO HUGE.

WE NEED THE LOCAL CHURCH TO STEP

UP FOR US TO ERADICATE THIS

INJUSTICE.

WE HAVE TO PUT A STOP, WE

HAVE TO SAY ENOUGH.

NOT IN OUR CITY, NOT IN OUR

NATION, NOT IN OUR WORLD.

WE HAVE TO STAND UP AND TELL THE

DARKNESS YOU AREN'T GOING TO

KEEP DOING THIS WITHOUT A FIGHT.

CHARLENE AARON, CBN NEWS,

KANSAS CITY.

GOD IS STANDING BEHIND EACH

AND EVERY ONE OF US.

STAY WITH US, MUCH MORE OF CBN

STRAIGHT AHEAD.

IMAGINE 50,000 STUDENTS

SHARED GOD'S LOVE AT DIFFERENT

PLACES ACROSS THE COUNTRY ON THE

SAME DAY, SEPTEMBER 23RD,

EXACTLY WHAT IS GOING TO HAPPEN,

ONE DAY OUT REACH EVENT IS A WAY

TO GET TEENS INVOLVED IN

EVANGELISM, HOPE THIS MOVEMENT

WILL LEAD TO A REVIVAL IN

AMERICA.

THERE ARE ONE BILLION

TEENAGERS WORLDWIDE.

MOST DESPERATELY NEED AN

ENCOUNTER WITH JESUS CHRIST.

I BELIEVE THE BEST ONES TO USE

THE TEENS ARE OTHER TEENS THAT

THEY KNOW.

WHEN A TEEN IS SHARING THE

GOSPEL, THEY ARE RISKING THEIR

SOCIAL EQUITY.

THEY CAN BE UNFRIENDED, MOCKED,

MARGINALIZE, THEY ARE DYING TO

THEMSELVES, PICKING UP THE CROSS

AND FOLLOWING CHRIST.

START IN THE MORNING, WE GO

TO TRAINING.

WE EAT AND DO AFTERNOON

ACTIVITIES.

TODAY WE ARE GOING OUT INTO THE

STREET TO TRY TO EVANGELIZE.

WE HAVE BEEN AROUND 25 YEARS,

TRAIN AND EQUIP STUDENTS HOW TO

SHARE THEIR FAITH.

MISSION IS TO ENERGIZE CHURCH,

MOBILIZE YOUTH, GOSPELIZE THEIR

WORLD.

I WAS BLOWN AWAY.

I SAID THIS IS, THIS IS THE HOLY

DISCONTENT I HAVE BEEN FEELING.

THIS IS THE ANSWER FOR IT.

GOING BACK TO UM, WHAT GOD HAS

CALLED US TO DO WHICH IS TO MAKE

DISCIPLES OF ALL NATIONS.

I BELIEVE WE ARE GOING TO SEE

EXCITING REVIVALS SWEEP THE

LAND, EVERY DAY AT 9:23 I PRAY

FOR SEPTEMBER 23RD.

WE ARE DOING DARE TO SHARE LIVE.

WE ARE TRAINING 50,000 TEENAGERS

COAST TO COAST FROM PUERTO RICO

TO FAIRBANKS, ALASKA.

50,000 STUDENTS EQUIPPED

UNLEASHED FOR REVIVAL AND WE ARE

GOING TO UNLEASH THEM ALL.

DARE TO SHARE APPS.

IT IS A SIMULTANEOUS TRAINING

AND RELEASED TO COLLECT CANNED

FOOD AND SHARE THE GOSPEL AND

COME BACK FOR NATIONAL PRAYER

AND PRAISE PARTY.

IT IS OUR PRAYER GOD WOULD USE

9/23 AS A RALLY POINT FOR

NATIONAL TRANSFORMATION.

SEPTEMBER 23RD, RALLY POINT,

WE'LL BE WATCHING.

IT IS TIME FOR OUR WEDNESDAY

WORD.

TODAY'S WORD, CONSIDER THIS,

OFTEN QUICK TO SAY WE ARE

WAITING ON GOD.

IN MANY CASES HE IS WAITING ON

US.

TODAY IS A GREAT DAY TO MAKE A

MOVE.

GOD IS LOOKING FOR YOU TO TRUST

HIM.

IT IS CERTAIN HE WILL NOT ALLOW

YOU TO FALL AND HE WILL BLESS

YOUR FAITHFULNESS AND YOUR

ACTION.
