We have performed simulations of the three-dimensional frustrated anisotropic XY model with point disorder as a model of a type-II superconductor with quenched point pinning in a magnetic field and a weak applied current. Using resistively-shunted-junction dynamics we find a critical current $I_c$ that separates a creep region with unmeasurable low voltage from a region with a voltage $V\propto (I-I_c)$, and also identify the mechanism behind this behavior. It also turns out that data at fixed disorder strength may be collapsed by plotting $V$ versus $TI$, where $T$ is the temperature, though the reason for this behavior as yet not is fully understood.
