The newly released film "Caged No More," featuring Kevin Sorbo, targets the world's fastest-growing crime and the film's producer, Lisa Arnold, says Christians must lead the charge in the fight against human trafficking.
Inspired by real life events, "Caged No More" is meant to spread awareness about trafficking victims by telling the story of Aggie Prejean, a godmother on a desperate search to find sisters Skye and Elle, who were kidnapped by their father (Kevin Sorbo).
As the details behind the girls' disappearance begins to unravel, it's discovered their father has taken them overseas to be sold into slavery to settle a drug debt. Prejean enlists the help of the girls' uncle (also played by Sorbo), a well-respected local philanthropist, and his son, Wil (Alan Powell), who's a former special forces soldier, to find and rescue the girls. A global hunt ensues, and the team stops at nothing to ensure the girls are safely returned home. more >>
The first of the over 200 Christian schoolgirls from Chibok, Nigeria, kidnapped by terror group Boko Haram nearly two years ago, has been found with a baby and reunited with her family, igniting hope for the parents of the other girls as well.
International Christian Concern reported on Wednesday that the girl, identified as 19-year-old Amina Ali Nkeki, was found with a 4-month-old baby at the edge of the Sambisa Forest, one of Boko Haram's hideouts, which government officials have pinpointed as the likely location where the other girls are held too.
After the Wilmette, Illinois Police Department announced on Monday that they are "seeking to check the well-being of Sinead O'Connor," the authorities called of their search on the same day, stating that the singer has been found and is safe.
According to CNN, an unnamed caller alerted the police after O'Connor left at 6 a.m. for a bike ride on Sunday morning and did not return for 24 hours. While it was not detailed where the songwriter was found, where she had been and how her location was discovered, many fans have sounded off their prayers for her safety.
A mother who gave up her unplanned child for adoption when she was just 19 years old made a startling discovery after it was revealed that she and the child had actually worked together before.
Wendy Novak was pretty much not ready for motherhood that resulted from a date rape. Despite getting pregnant against her will, it never occurred to her, though, to have the baby aborted. Rather, she decided to proceed with the pregnancy and gave her up for adoption at the Lutheran Social Services in North Dakota.
"The Finest Hours," released nationwide Friday, is a Walt Disney Pictures film with a plot taken right from the history books. In the true story of the U.S. Coast Guard's famous rescue, the Hollywood film showcases the hope and faith of the brave men out at sea.
In 1952, a massive winter storm split an oil tanker in two, off the coast of Cape Cod, trapping more than 30 sailors on board. The Coast Guard heard about the ship in distress and set out on a daring rescue attempt in which mostly every man on board was rescued. The heroic event is now a movie based on a book by the same name.
"The Finest Hours" stars Chris Pine, Casey Affleck, Ben Foster, Holliday Grainger, John Ortiz and Eric Bana. more >>
NEW YORK — Actors Kevin Sorbo and Alan Powell who star in the film "Caged No More" reveal shocking statistics about sex trafficking, the world's fastest-growing crime, and how the newly released movie is educating and empowering people to take action and save lives.
"I knew it existed, I didn't know it was to this level. I always thought, 'Oh it's in Asia, it's in Russia, it's in some other country.' [But] not here," Sorbo said about human trafficking during an interview with The Christian Post. "It's always been there, we're just more aware of it now."
Much like his co-star, Powell also didn't realize how prevalent the horrific crime is. "I read the script and said, there's no way this really happens," he revealed. The young actor said it really hit him when he was sent articles of human trafficking incidents that happened in his home town just miles away from where he lives. more >>
