Pearl of Great Price - PEARL OF GREAT PRICE: This video was created for the Pearl Ministry for their fall fundraiser. The idea was to ask the viewer to put a price on their own daughter and to compare that to the actual price being paid for young girls sold into slavery around the world. When we think about the value we would place on our own children, the actual numbers are quite shocking. This video was distributed to legislators in North Carolina and Sarah Tellis, director of Pearl Ministries in New Bern, was eventually appointed by Gov. Pat McCrory to the newly established Human Trafficking Commission of North Carolina. The commission was formed as part of the Safe Harbor/Victims of Human Trafficking Act (SB 683) that was passed into law on Oct. 1, 2013.
