In an effort to raise awareness about the plague of child trafficking, both in Alaska and across the world, the office of Rep. Sarah Vance (R-Homer) is offering free movie tickets to the new major motion film, “Sound of Freedom.”

The feature film starring Jim Caviezel will be showing at the Homer Movie Theater on July 6. The 4:30 p.m. showing will be covered by Vance’s office.

According to Rotten Tomatoes movie reviews, the film is based on the incredible true story of a federal agent (Caviezel), who rescues a young boy from ruthless child traffickers. After learning that the boy’s sister is still captive, he decides to embark on a dangerous mission to save her. With time running out, he quits his job and journeys deep into the Colombian jungle, putting his life on the line to free her from a fate worse than death.

Combating human trafficking, which victimizes more than 2 million children annually, is a legislative focus for Vance. As the Chair of the House Judiciary Committee, she has highlighted the issue by introducing a bill that would establish a Justice in Human Trafficking Week across Alaska.

Her aim in purchasing tickets is to give Alaskans an opportunity to learn more about how to fight this global scourge. To secure advance tickets to the July 6 screening, call 907-235-2921.

For those outside the Homer area, the movie is also being shown in major theaters across Alaska. Click here to find specific locations, dates and times.

    We don’t need to be wasting our time attending films, conferences, nor summits how to overcome evil. Homer (Alaska) would waste less time attending its churches, reading the Bible both individually and along with family or a group of friends. Doing the things long ago that grew our parents or grandparents churches. If it’s challenging to find a local pastor who does teach the Bible both on Sundays, Wednesdays there is the radio and internet to plug believers into a website of another ministry that teaches true doctrine. Most of the minors caught up in sex trafficking are fatherless, orphans, foster children, and runaways. If those who were serious to attend churches, fellowship with other believers more than 1 day of a week, and read the Bible then community members would understand James 1:27 “Religion that God our Father accepts as pure and faultless is this: to look after orphans and widows in their distress and to keep oneself from being polluted by the world.” Young something that really gets my goat is watching the ministries promote the foster care ministry getting more Christians to adopt foster care children, while they still overlook how to walk with single mothers or single fathers while they have their child before making a disastrous mistake when the parent is most tired, overwhelmed, financially stressed, lonesome; prompting law enforcement intervention and CPS/OCS interference. If the churches ministries understood James 1:27, they’d know how to take care of the fatherless, the single parent, and the orphan reducing a community’s abuse.

      Jen, there are so many people who do not know what is going on. Although, I understand that the evil wants our children, I did not know the extent to which they want our children and why. I hope that as many people as possible go watch this movie. Maybe watching this movie will help cement the urgency with which we need to take to save our children from all of this evil. So many people still asleep.

    • Jim Doyle says:

      Jen –good points. Since you are the Church, what are you doing on this problem

    • Marlene says:

      Sex trafficking is not limited to America and “fatherless, orphans, foster children, and runaways”. It involves every country in the world and the main reason is for money. It has nothing to do with church members, etc. It involves everyone everywhere. This movie educates everyone who doesn’t know what is being done to children.

    • Matthew myers says:

      Jen, many people read the Bible and interpret it horribly, or thinking that the Holy Spirit is helping them interpret it when it really is just 16th century traditions of men. Really though, you make fairly decent suggestions, but how about also supporting a great movie that is well made and seeks to do something about this problem with the particular talents that they have.

      I don’t believe the movie is a waste of time. Look at “Uncle Tom’s Cabin” and the results from that but you make great points. I have hated the foster care system because in what I have seen of it, and I worked around this field for 6 years, it ruins children more then it helps them. Also, I was listening to a man who owned an orphanage in Brazil and he said that 70% of children that have been saved from child trafficking in the US were in the foster care system and he was encouraging the US to go back to orphanages because at least the children are in one spot and not being passed from place to place like what happens in foster care. I remember a foster child saying that every time he would be moved it was like getting hit by a truck.

  • Steve says:

    This comment may not be a Christian view, but maybe a swift public execution of the evil whom traffic in children would be a simple solution. If there isn’t a major consequence to participating in this evil then the financial benefit outweighs the evil.

    • Matthew myers says:

      That sounds Christian to me. Christianity has always allowed capital punishment. Anything else is heresy. Capital punishment was legal in Vatican City until 1969.

    • Matthew myers says:

      There is an excellent book on cap. pun. called ‘By Man Shall His Blood be She’d’ by Dr. Ed Feser

    • CD says:

      Agree! Capital punishment should be used for consequences.
