This is not the type of sale you think. This a sale of human beings. Specifically women, and the groups are ages. It is contained in a memo from the Islamic State In Iraq or ISIS in August 15, 2014. The statement reads

In the name of God, the most merciful and the most compassionate.
Subject: Bounty

it has come to our attention, the market value for women and bounty, spoils of war, has witnessed a significant decrease. This has affected the revenues of the Islamic State and the payments for its Mujahideen.

Therefore, the Treasury found it necessary to set the prices for women. All those involved in such a trade must abide by these instructions and violators will face execution.

75 000 dinars, women, 30 to 40 years old, Yazidi/Christian.

100,000 dinars. A woman 20 to 30 years old, Yazidi or Christian.
150,000 dinars, a woman ten to 20 years old.

50,000 dinars, a woman 40 to 50 years old.

200,000 dinars, a child between the ages of one and nine.

“In the name of God, the most merciful and the most compassionate, anyone can purchase these “commodities” but no more than three, unless you are a foreign fighter from Turkey, Syria, and Gulf countries.
So the fighters can buy them. And you know why? You know what they use them for?
Recreation. So they will buy a child, bring them up to the war zone and pass them out. And so they just are used for sex between the battles. This is the state of our world. This is where we are going. This is what our president is turning a blind eye towards. This is what our churches are turning a blind eye to.
This is what the world is turning a blind eye to” *

This horrible unimaginable evil began in August of 2014 and continues today. Where is the outrage, the condemnation? These are human lives, precious to God. We as Christians and human beings must not be silent.

“Now at last they were beginning chapter One of the great story no one on earth has read: which goes on forever”. I love this line at the end of the Last Battle by C.S. Lewis. Everyone has a story to tell and ultimately we are all part of a greater story that someday will be revealed in full. “ For now, we can only see a dim and blurry picture of things”. ( 1 Corinthians 13:12). My story is not remarkable, although the events I have had the privilege in my life to witness have been. I grew up in the south “the land of cotton” and the old times there were definitely not forgotten. I remember where I was and what I was doing when JFK and Martin Luther King were murdered in Dallas and in Memphis. I remember the Civil Rights movement, a time of great unrest and change. I remember the dawning of the “Age of Aquarius” in the late 1960’s. It was also the dawning of my love for playing music, a love that has stayed with me throughout my life. If my life were chapters in a book one would tell of my precious bride of 20+ years who endured so much and stood beside me through the good and the bad. One would describe the blessings of being a father and a grandfather. One would tell about how despite being “the wretch” the song sings about God was able to change me, and use me to make a difference in others lives, make me a servant in His church, and surround me with friends all because of His goodness. All part of a story that has had many twists and turns. I think of the words Jimmy Buffet wrote in one of my favorite songs "As a dreamer of dreams and a travelin’ man I have chalked up many a mile Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks And I learned much from both of their styles" And so it is true for me. But in all of my travels and all I have read and experienced nothing compares to where I am headed. The place where my story here ends and the story that goes on forever begins! "" I am confident that He who began a good work in you will carry it on until completion until the day He returns". Philippians 1:6 My hope is that as we all run our race that in some small way my words will encourage and speak to you, as your story is being written. And draw you ever closer to the One who loves you. Further up and further in!

    James 1:27Pure and undefiled religion in the sight of our God and Father is this: to visit orphans and widows in their distress, and to keep oneself unstained by the world.

    These women for sale are widows and defenceless orphans – the Lord has not forsaken them and let us pray that through us they may be saved from their captors. Let us not forget them.
