Sitting alone reading “The Voice of Martyr’s” magazine, I come face-to-face with a story of this Christian gospel singer in Eritrea, who was captured and imprisoned for her faith in Jesus. Being physically violated by prison guards, hoping the torture would make her renounce her faith; her faith only grew stronger which eventually led to being released paralyzed from the waist down.
“Why are you worrying about this”? Because I read story after story of faithful Christian women suffering the attacks of the same crime for which I’m serving time, I couldn’t resist this cardiac arrest. The tears flowed, my heart hurt and my mind raced. I began praying for my persecuted siblings and asking God to let me use my past to help people, whatever I have to sacrifice to accomplish this; I AM MORE THAN WILLING as well as accepting what comes my way.
All the light being shined into the dark of prominent people’s closets, I feel a deep urge to do something productive that will contribute to preventing as much sexually based offenses as possible. I’m open to any ideas or projects you may have. Whatever it is that’s on your mind, I am all ears.
Please keep in mind that I can not change my past, but I can determine the course of my future and my sights are set.
