Listen to front-line stories from guys rescuing kidnapped children from sex slavery. Yep, that's a thing. Right now, there are over 2 MILLION children being sold and traded for sex. Timothy Ballard has saved hundreds of children himself. Tim left the Department of Homeland Security to start a non-profit, child rescue team, called Operation Underground Railroad (O.U.R.). Hear how they do it? It's candid and visceral. It's not explicit, but it's also not recommended for children.

    The Sound of Freedom

    The Sound of Freedom

    A few years ago Alejandro Monteverde started writing a fictional story about child trafficking. Around that time he met Tim Ballard and it caused him to scrap the script... since then he has been finishing "The Sound of Freedom" based on the true story of Tim's journey to where he is now. 
    Tim and Mark had a sneak preview of a director's cut. Immediately after the film, Mark sat with Alejandro(director and co-writer), Rod Barr (writer), and Brian Scofield (editor) to understand their philosophical and practical approach to telling a rough story so delicately and artfully. 
    The Sound of Freedom will likely hit screens this coming Spring (2020).

    Tim's visit with the President

    Tim's visit with the President

    We've all heard soundbites of White House meetings, but how much behind the scenes have you heard? Well, today that's what we're delivering. Last month Tim Ballard was asked (with not much notice) to meet with President Trump, Ivanka Trump, and leaders of several security agencies to discuss trafficking at the border.
    We'll also discuss southern border policies that are effecting the well being of children today. 
    And finally, Tim showed up with a box of surprises, including an unexpected bronze statue... and he's not telling who it is until the end.

    Glenn Beck on Fighting ISIS, trafficking, and genocide in Iraq and Syria

    Glenn Beck on Fighting ISIS, trafficking, and genocide in Iraq and Syria

    There's an attempted genocide underway that has largely gone unmentioned in the American press. ISIS is systematically killing the Yazidi people and Christian groups in Iraq and Syria. Those that are not killed are being trafficked for sex, labor, and organ harvesting.
    Our guest today, Glenn Beck, has founded an organization that has saved over 11,000 Yazidis and Christians, by funding and executing escape, rescue, and relocation. 
    Glenn is an American political commentator, radio host and television producer. He is the CEO, founder, and owner of Mercury Radio Arts, as well a founder of The Nazarene Fund. Last year, Glenn named Tim Ballard as CEO of The Nazarene Fund. 
    You'll note the friendship between Glenn, Tim, and Mark. A few years ago, Glenn hired Mark as Creative Director of Mercury Radio Arts. During that period, Glenn and Mark got involved with Tim in his organization Operation Underground Railroad.

    The Underground Railroad Today

    The Underground Railroad Today

    Have you ever thought about what you would have done in the early 1800's to help end slavery? If you're thinking, "I would have fought to end it." Great News! Here's your chance. Slavery (aka Human Trafficking) is more pervasive today than even back during the Transatlantic Slave trade. 
    So what are you going to do about it? 
    Today, Tim and Mark sit with Burgess Owens, whose ancestors came out of the slavery of the American South. He discusses the parallels of then and now and challenges us to take action. 
    Throughout this episode you'll hear music that was used for comfort and strength by the African American slaves during slavery. There are also some songs from the American Civil Rights Era. They were produced especially for the show. So enjoy!

You are the end to modern day slavery! 💯♥️💯✝️

This should be every faithful PATRIOTS movement! Predators everywhere and many people are advocates to keep the network up and going to put our kids in slavery. The devil 👿 we must take down to SAVE our children.

Ilovepink78 ,

A non-partisan issue!! It’s about the children!

Mike Tomlin was right...it is our only chance and I HOPE people can lay down their swords and come together for the children!!!!!! I hope everyone listening to this opens their hearts to what Tim is saying. He is truly a great example of what we should be doing and protecting these children and loving each other. Thank you, Mark for having Tim on again. Phenomenal interview! Very powerful and moving!! 👏🏼❤️
