A woman who was sold for sex slavery at a very young age and molested as a teenager found healing when she accepted Jesus in her heart.
Sold For Sex Slavery
Kim grew up in a struggling family with 12 siblings. All of them suffered the abuse of neglect by their own parents. As a result, forging through garbage was a normal way of life to survive. Then at 3-years-old, a family member sold her for sex slavery in exchange for drugs or food. She started cutting at a very young age to scare her molesters away, but she was wrong.
At 8-years-old, the social services rescued them and took her to a foster home that separated her from her siblings. Unfortunately, over the next six years, she stayed in different foster homes where she experienced sexual and physical abuse.
God Pursues Her
Then at 14-years-old, Kim went to live with her Christian grandmother, who began taking her to church. But she still rejected God at the time. Revenge and anger still filled her heart.
One day, while walking, she passed a church and heard a hymn that resonated within her heart. Then finally, she began praying to God.
“I know You don’t know who I am because if You knew who I was, You probably wouldn’t let all these things happen that happened to me. But I hope You want to know me because I want to know You,” Kim told God.
And she started asking God to help her how to find Jesus. When she became an adult, memories of abuse tortured her, and she wished death on her abusers until she met a Christian guy named Alan.
This Christian guy invited her to church, and there she began to know Jesus. There, she accepted Jesus in her heart and was baptized.
At 19-years-old, Kim married Alan and graduated college with a degree in social work and business administration. She wanted to provide safe homes for children and became a foster care mother.
God’s redeeming power is evidently seen in Kim’s life today as she became an award-winning writer and movie producer. God is so good!
