Hi… my name is Grace and I am a sex trafficking survivor. From the time I first learned to walk and talk, my father would either rape me or sell me to other men. Because of the constant rape, abuse, and trafficking, I lived in constant fear - fear of death and fear of what was going to happen next. I believed all I was good for was men’s enjoyment. I struggled with depression and suicidal thoughts.
But now I have escaped that life, and I have hope. My escape did not occur because my father messed up and the police came and rescued me. My mom, knowing how my father used me, felt jealous and tried to get rid of me. That is how I came to White Stone Ministries, a place that helps people in need. When I came here, I was a troubled girl with lots of issues. I was a smoker, a drug user, and a sex addict.
But now, that’s all in the past. Now I am a happy and healthy young adult. After going on a journey of getting to know God, I have been able to forgive my abusers and parents and have found so much healing in my heart and mind. I am so thankful for the healing power of Jesus. The verses that have helped me are Psalm 27:10 (NRSV), “If my father and mother forsake me, the LORD will take me up.,” and Romans 8:28 (BSB), “…God works all things together for the good of those who love Him...” I know God will use my story for good because He says He will!
