When Natalie was introduced to a man on a blind date, at a coffee shop, she had no idea that she would end up being drugged, thrown into a trunk, and taken into a bordering country. “She was raped and beaten repeatedly. Two weeks later, Natalia was sold as a sex slave.” On a more local level, as Beverly Mayo has learned more and more about the heightened awareness of human trafficking, she shares that Interstate 10 is a major gateway to human trafficking. This is happening in our own home towns. It is in America. Beverly continues to share and educate signs to look for and how we can be educated for what to do in those moments.
When Nicole was battling a drug addiction, she met a man who encouraged her to begin a new life and “get clean.” What transpired was anything but that. “I was so terrified of this man. If he said ‘jump’, I’d say ‘how high’. He said I had the personality to bring girls home to him. They trusted me because I looked like an ‘All-American White Girl’. He forced me to have two abortions and I had no choice what-so-ever, and that was probably the hardest” Nicole was trafficked across the United States for seven years. Jennifer was not only trafficked, she was branded by her trafficker. She was tattooed by her trafficker, ‘Salem’, 4 times on her body that was a daily reminder of this evil. Sharing her story with CNN, Jennifer spent 5 years on the streets of Columbus, Ohio. “It happens on every street, in every city, in every country; and it happened to me.” After a brutal raping she decided to kill herself. She had had enough. God spoke to her that He had a plan for her life. Jennifer has since escaped from sex trafficking and now helps others recover from their broken past.
