Episode 21 Compassion Energized by Love to Children Trapped
I have a good friend. Her name is Stephanie Freed and she co-founded Rapha International in 2003 after she was challenged by her father to research the issue of human trafficking.  Beginning with one aftercare program for underage female survivors of trafficking and sexual exploitation in Battambang, Cambodia, 15 years later, Rapha now serves child survivors in Cambodia, Thailand, and Haiti. Stephanie is a firm believer in quality programming and collaboration, which allows Rapha to enjoy the cooperation and respect of the governments where they are working.   Rapha International is a public benefit 501c3 nonprofit committed to ending the trafficking and sexual exploitation of children. Founded in 2003, Rapha continues to rescue and rehabilitate children, while bringing them to lasting freedom. Rapha’s vision is to see all children living in sustainable freedom within safe communities.Rapha is a faith-based organization that takes seriously the scripture that reads: “Dear children, let us not love with words or speech but with action and in truth” (1John 3:18). It is with compassion energized and sustained by love that we act on behalf of victimized and vulnerable children. Though we are faith-based, we offer aid without requiring those that we help to embrace our faith. When Jesus fed the 5,000 he did not withhold from those who refused to believe. He gave freely, and so do we.LINKS   Website:  Facebook:   Instagram:  @rphaintl Linked in:   Christ’s Church of the Valley:  CCV Missions:  www.ccv.church/missions  Pastor Larrie Fraley: linkedin.com/in/larrie-fraley-53445032 Email: missions@ccv.church

Episode 11 - Ten Children Trafficked for Sex While You Listen
Micah 6:8 says, “He has shown you, O man, what is good. And what does the LORD require of you? To act justly and to love mercy and to walk humbly with your God.”  I serve on StreelightUSA's board where Hannah Burkle is the Executive Director at StreetLightUSA. In 2011 Hannah joined the anti-trafficking movement and worked for Rapha International speaking and bringing awareness to human trafficking nationally and internationally. She moved to Cambodia in 2013 and lived internationally for seven years as the Country Director for Rapha International. In her position, she oversaw two aftercare programs, two prevention centers, one special needs house, and one transitional home. Hannah believes ministry is a way of life, meant to be lived in service to Christ Jesus. Hannah is passionate about empowering leaders, staff, and the community at large, to “be a voice for the voiceless” through awareness, outreach, support, and advocacy opportunities. Her goal is to enrich the lives of each child God places in StreetlightUSA’s care, by helping each one find their voice, purpose, love, acceptance, and hope in Christ. Hannah will continue to build and maintain partnerships with churches, mental health and wellness centers, medical providers, government agencies, law enforcement, pastors, business owners, supporters, NGO’s, and donors. It is Hannah’s prayer that she and StreetlightUSA be a beacon of hope and unity in the valley and around the world for change by breaking the cycle of abuse as they walk alongside each child God has entrusted to them through their journey of healing.  LINKS Website:   @streetlightusacaresChrist’s Church of the Valley: Missions:  www.ccv.church/missions Pastor Larrie Fraley: linkedin.com/in/larrie-fraley-53445032Email: missions@ccv.church
Episode 8  JAPAN - Not knowing is Buddha

Episode 8 JAPAN - Not knowing is Buddha
There is a saying by some in Japan that says, Not knowing id Buddha which means you have a choice in this life; you can know, or you can not know, and become Buddha. I agree that you have a choice in life. Perhaps that is the common ground between Christianity and Buddhism. No matter what anybody says and no matter how well anything can be explained; it is finally all up to you. You must find the truth for yourself. Everyone has that capacity. That's where Mustard Seed goes to work.  Today's guest is Jay Greer with Mustard Seed. Jay and his wife Caitlin both graduated from Ozark Christian College in 2007 and moved to Japan in 2008. They have lived and worked in Japan for 14 years doing church planting and evangelism in three different cities. Currently, Caitlin serves in music ministry and Jay is the pastor of their church in Tokyo and also serves in leadership with their organization, Mustard Seed Network. They have four kids, one of which is adopted, and they were all born in Japan.   Their mission is to glorify God by making disciples through planting gospel-centered churches in urban Japan.  Their Vision is to see the cities of Japan saturated with and impacted by gospel-centered churches that further the global cause of Jesus Christ.  LINKSWebsite: www.mustardseed.network Facebook:   Instagram:  @mustardseednetwordjapan People Groups:  Unreached Christ’s Church of the Valley:  CCV Missions:  www.ccv.church/missions  Pastor Larrie Fraley: linkedin.com/in/larrie-fraley-53445032 Email: missions@ccv.church

Episode 7 Team Expansion - The Reachable Unreached
I have known Doug for many many years and I can honestly say he has impacted my life with his encouragement and has always been there for counsel. He is one of a very short list of men that I would place in the category of the wisest men on planet earth. Doug Lucas is the founder and President of Team Expansion. He is married to Penny and has two grown sons. He has served the organization since October, 1978. It is said that the Greeks didn't write obituaries. They only asked one question: "Did this man  have passion?" Doug has said that if his friends remember only one thing about him, he hopes they'll remember this -- that he had a passion for caring about those who had no hope.Doug strives to launch new fields and train leaders both from the USA as well as from partner sending bases abroad. Because most Team Expansion workers raise support for all that they do for the Lord and for the organization, Doug depends completely on faithful partners directly supporting his work with Team Expansion. Without your prayers, gifts, and partnership, Doug would have no resources to lead the organization forward into new lands. Thank you Doug for your vision and shared partnership. It’s both inspiring and empowering. LINKS Website:  Doug’s Book:   The Afghanistan Project:    People Groups:   Christ’s Church of the Valley:  CCV Missions:  www.ccv.church/missions  Pastor Larrie Fraley: linkedin.com/in/larrie-fraley-53445032 Email: missions@ccv.church
