Have you ever felt like stepping out of your body and having nothing to do with it ever again?
Well, if you’ve been through what I’ve been through, you won’t find my question strange.
My name is Kate. I am twenty-one years old, a former sex slave, rescued, rehabilitated and restored through the aid of Well Spring International. This God-sent organization assists helpless and hopeless women and children all over the world.
I was born and bred in poverty. My mother, widowed when I was ten, released me to her elder brother who promised to send me to school. Instead, I was turned into a domestic slave. My uncle’s wife and children abused me physically. I still bear the scars of their cruelty on my body.
I wasn’t quite thirteen when my uncle first sneaked into my room, and forced himself on me. The sight of my blood on the sheet gave me quite a fright, I threw up.
Oh, the pain still rings in my head.
That marked the beginning of many nights of vicious abuse. With threats, he kept my lips sealed.
Then I got pregnant!
Before his wife found out, he took me to a squalid clinic far from our house. There, the very first life my body conceived was excruciatingly wrenched out of me.
Months after, my mother died. My uncle soon sold me off to a woman who ran a brothel in our neighborhood, as payment for a parcel of land he bought from her. With five other innocent girls, I landed in Cambodia as a sex slave. I was fourteen. I can’t even begin to tell you how much I suffered from people who used and abused our bodies in every evil way unimaginable.
Oh, the pain! The defilement!
I hated my body!
Sometimes, I wished I could pull my body over my head the way I pull my dress or simply walk out of it, as you walk out of a house. I cried many times, but sometimes when tears run dry, I groaned. I attempted suicide thrice, but God had other plans. He sent me help through Well Springs International. I was not only rescued from sex slavery, I recovered from my physical and emotional wounds. Now, I have Jesus. I am renewed and filled with a new hope, freedom and confidence. I have a home and a full scholarship.
But my heart still bleeds every day for all the girls aged 7-18 trapped in sex slavery in Cambodia.
You can help.
