Two-time Grammy Award-winning band for KING & COUNTRY are gearing up for the release of their upcoming dramatic thriller "Priceless," which delves into the dark world of human trafficking. While promoting the film, one half of the duo, Luke Smallbone, offered spiritual and practical advice for men and women on the importance of chivalry.
Inspired by real life events, "Priceless" is a powerful story about James Stevens (Joel Smallbone) who at one time was a good man with a great life, but has since drastically changed. Following the tragic death of his wife and losing custody of his daughter, James finds himself at the darkest crossroad of his life. Angry, desperate, and unable to hold down a steady job, he agrees to drive a box truck on a one-time trip cross country for cash — no questions asked. But when he discovers what he's delivering, he's faced with a life-changing decision.
This unlikely hero must risk it all, confront the forces that oppose him, and ultimately discover the life he was meant to live. more >>

Pakistani Human rights activists are decrying government claims that 90 percent of the over 1,100 children reported missing in Pakistan's Punjab province last year left their home on their own will, and argued that the police are covering up the systemic abuse and kidnapping of Christian girls.
As word has swept across the province that over 600 children have been kidnapped in the region in recent months, Haider Ashraf, the deputy inspector general of operations for the police department in Lahore, has denied such claims.
Although it is hard to deny the fact that over 1,000 abduction cases are filed every year in the province, Ashraf has gone on record as saying that 90 percent of the 1,134 children reported to be abducted in 2015 actually left their homes on their own accord after being admonished by their parents. Ashraf further asserted that about 929 of the abducted children have returned on their own. more >>
