Joining me for the first half of todays show will be Dr Greg Reid, Youth Fire Ministries. Human Trafficking generates $9.5 billion dollars a year. Approximately 300,000 children are at risk of being prostituted in the United States according to the latest DOJ statistics. The average age of entry into prostitution for a child victim in the United States is 13 to 14 years old and they will be expected to have sex 20 to 48 times per day. Their pimp will make $150,000 to $200,000 per girl and the pimp generally has 5 or 6 girls. Houston and El Paso have been is listed as two of the top twenty Human Trafficking districts in the Unites States. Dr Greg helps law enforcement to identify victims and how to help them. There is both a physical aspect and a spiritual aspect and Dr Greg will share these with us.
