Praying fervently for the children...

The Belize Sex Offender Registry reported that two little boys went in to the police station in San Pedro with their mother over the weekend to report a case of sexual abuse.  The boys are 6 and 9.  Here in Belize when a sex crime is committed against a boy it is called an Unnatural Crime.  

Aren't all sex crimes against children unnatural?  

I'm not trying to make a political statement...just a human one.  Children should not be the objects of anyone's sexual desire.  It is heartbreaking each time we hear about a new case. I keep thinking about the ones who are not being listened to, the ones who are too young or too afraid to make a report, the ones who are trapped.  No child should have to face sexual advances from an adult...ever.

Please join with us in prayer for the children of this country and for children all around the world who are suffering from current or past sexual abuse, sexual slavery, and sexual exploitation.

  4. so, so sad. Here in the U.S. a lot of stuff is in the news now -- lots of ministries under fire for having covered up abuse. Makes me sick that this happens, but even sicker that churches have done such a thing.

  5. Sadly, abuse does occur in ministries and in churches. And I'm sure it breaks God's heart.
