Destination: Liberdade | Exodus Cry

LIBERDADE (Lee-ber-dajee)
(f) n. freedom, liberty; independence, latitude; loose

Hi wonderful friends & family! 



This summer, I have been invited by the Lord to partner with Him in something so strategic and crucial, not only in fighting to rescue women caught in sex trafficking, but in building His House of Prayer in the nations of the earth. 

Exodus Cry, a modern day abolitionist movement that was birthed out of the International House of Prayer in Kansas City, is taking 12 teams down to Brazil, a country known for its sex appeal and women, to every city where the FIFA World Cup is being held. During this month long event, millions from all over the world will flock to this nation for soccer and sex. Sex trafficking and exploitation will hit an all time high with over 1-2 million children are sexually exploited within a legal system of prostitution everyday. The enemy has a very distinct plan to increase the oppression and darkness, but the Lord has invited us into His counterattack.

"Our prevention work begins and ends with Jesus Christ. We believe that Jesus has come to set the captives free (Luke 4:18). There is no greater weapon against human trafficking than prayer. This truth has been proven to us many times as we have rallied supporters and joined in prayer with friends from all across the United States and around the globe. From the rescue of those enslaved to the closing of brothels to the restoration of young women who are now free, we have seen His powerful works in response to prayer." - Exodus Cry

Vision: While Brazil occupies the stage for the World Cup, Exodus Cry seeks to see the beauty and worth of Jesus put on display. As we connect with God's heart in intimacy and prayer, laborers will be sent into the harvest field- the hardest and darkest places where women and children are being exploited in Brazil.

Mission: Exodus Cry, in partnership with the Brazilian church, seeks to mobilize a 24/7 prayer room within the prostitution zone in each of the 12 host cities. This prayer room will run for 31 days, the entirety of the World Cup, and will target intercession around the ending of sex trafficking and spiritual awakening in the nation of Brazil. Out of this 24/7 prayer-reality, teams will be sent into the prostitution zones to minister to those being exploited.

As many of you know, I was rescued by Jesus out of an abusive and exploited background and now He has called me to STEWARD the story of redemption, salvation, and freedom that He has granted to me by giving it to others and setting the captives free. But in order for me to do this, I need people that will partner with God in sending me to go on His behalf. Our team has to buy plane tickets THIS WEEK for $1500 each, so we need your help to bring an end to this injustice :)

Thank you all for your heart and for partnering with Jesus & His purposes. Your support & prayers are equally as vital to the task of the Great Commission being fulfilled in our generation! We are all in this together!

Love & Blessings,
Melissa
