    Human Trafficking - A Survivors Story - Jennifer Kempton

    in Motivation

    Jennifer shares "I grew up feeling unloved and unworthy. I had deeply embedded negative thoughts and feelings that drove me to seek comfort in negative things. After loosing my virginity to a sexual assualt at 12, I began to seek comfort in drugs and older men. After a series of abusive relationships, I ended up with what I thought was someone who took care of me and truly loved me. That man quickly turned me onto iv drug use and started grooming me for a darkness I had never known existed. What started as being a dancer at local strip clubs quickly evolved into placing ads on Craigslist. Before I realized that my soul was being emptied, I found myself being raped regularly, kidnapped, held hostage, sold to gangs and branded. After 5-6 years of enslavement, including birthing my last child by myself on a strangers floor, I was able to escape. Only to be left with 4 semingly permant marks of demorilization and constant reminders of the violence I escaped. After 8 months of saving I was able to fund my first of the four cover ups of my brandings. That is when a very special person came into my life and sponsored me to have my remaining coverups done. The feeling of freedom and empowerment I felt reclaiming my body was amazing and life changing. That is when I founded Survivor's Ink. It quickly became a non-profit strictly for survivors of human trafficking who have been branded or scarred from their traffickers, abusers and time of enslavement. Not only have I been able to give this freeing gift to other survivors. I have found my strenth, myself and healing by us uniting and fighting back against human trafficking and grip of that darkness. I now have been able to try to use my story to raise money for the strongest, most amazing survivors ever! My sisters.

    Human Trafficking - A Survivors Story - Laurin Crosson

    in Motivation

    Laurin  Crosson, Founder & Director of Rockstarr Ministries says “My story is graphic, and yet sharing it has become healing for me and those who are in a hopeless place. Individuals find a balm of hope and spark of courage for their own lives. Others feel called to join me in my quest to serve those who need to be reconnected with their personhood and belief that their lives can be so much more. I am not ashamed to share the details of the lowest points in my life and the struggles I faced, nor the methods I employed to survive. They have brought me to a place of understanding the desperate place that others find themselves in. Survival was the name of the game. I am not ashamed because I found a silver thread of belief that my life could and would be different and held onto it until I found the evidence to back up that hope. Individuals who are living and working in the life have trusted me and borrowed that thread of hope until they found their own courage and I have assisted stars, strippers, and prostitutes.


    Over the last several years, awareness of sex trafficking has continued to increase and its insidious prevalence has been documented to be widespread throughout the world. The women, children, and men taken into this trade are often lured or tricked into servitude through lies, deceit, manipulation, abuse, and very typically against their will. Such actions leave victims devoid of self-esteem or self-worth, yearning for a sense of purpose and justice in their circumstances. It is here that the ministry of Jesus Christ, unlike anything else, can bridge the gap between what is and what may be. Through the compassion and lessons taught by Jesus, every victim can find hope, courage, and the strength to recognize their destiny as a child of God.

    Human Trafficking - A Survivors Story - Christine McDonald

    in Motivation

    Christine McDonald is an internationally recognized author and speaker on the social injustices facing underserved populations today.  As a survivor of human trafficking, homelessness, and addiction, Christine- now blind as a result of a disease that forced her to choose between her unborn child and her eyesight- is on a mission to bring justice and awareness to the forefront of social change through education and unconditional love.

    Christine began life in a small town in Oklahoma, in a very dark and painful household. She felt safest using her own survival skills to live on the streets and ran away for the last time when she was just 15.  This began her 17 year journey of homelessness, which comprised of being sex trafficked, drug addiction, prostitution, 103 arrests and 7 prison stints.  Finally ready for a better life and barely able to read or write, Christine began a new journey of exiting the life of the streets, only to be challenged again.

    Completely blind and eternally vigilant, today Christine uses her life experience and education to work as an advocate for trafficking victims, the homeless, recovering addicts, ex-offenders and disabled populations.  Currently living in St Louis, Missouri, Christine is a proud mom of her 7 year old son and practices a loving open adoption with her daughter’s adoptive parents in nearby Kirkwood.  Christine is the author of Cry Purple: One Woman’s Journey through Homelessness, Crack Addiction and Prison to Blindness, Motherhood and Happiness and is the founder of www.ChristinesVision.org.  She has also been featured locally and nationally on various media outlets, including NBC, CBS, FOX and NPR and sits on multiple local, state-wide and international level boards and committees.
