Fighting human trafficking goes right to the heart of who The Salvation Army is and why we exist. In this podcast, we're joined by Captain Sammy Millar, the Territorial Human Trafficking Response Coordinator.   She recalls some of our most famous stories - and if you haven't heard them, get ready to be blown away! - but the Army is still working all around the world to save people from modern day slavery.   In this wide-ranging chat we learn more about the realities of slavery right here in in our Territory - and what all of us can do to help stop demand and stop people becoming victims.   Here are some links mentioned in our conversation: Just Kai: https://justkai.org.nz/ Tearfund Ethical Fashion Guide: https://www.tearfund.org.nz/Get-Invol...

This is a truly deep and transformative conversation, as we celebrate the season of Matariki. Auxillary-Captain Amiria Te Whiu illuminates us on her own journey of how Te Ao Māori is interwoven with her faith, but of how Māori have been excluded from faith institutions. She teaches us about the 'doctrine of discovery' that allowed for devastating land confiscations, and how we can work as partners to honour Te Tiriti o te Waitangi together. Here's a bit more about Whaea Amiria: Amiria Te Whiu spent 40 many years as an ordained Amorangi minister for Te Aka Puaho, Presbyterian Church. She's also worked as the National Coordinating chaplain for Corrections and Serco Prison Chaplaincy Services of Aotearoa, New Zealand and served as the Officiating Chaplain for the Royal NZ Navy at the Devonport Naval Base! Amiria also has an academic background in theology and education. She also has six adult children, 13 mokopuna – and two great-grandchildren. Amiria was planning to retire and study theology, when she felt to call to join The Salvation Army. She is the National Māori Ministries Development Coordinator for Community Ministries, helping develop and equip Māori leadership and tikanga within the Army.
