When we first meet someone, we can never begin to imagine their life history and exactly where they’ve come from. Such was the case when we met Shannah, a beautiful, vibrant woman, full of the love of Jesus. We met while she was serving on the missions field and she was a delight to get to know, as she radiated to those around her the joy that comes from knowing Him.
Then as we spent more time together, she shared her story of how, when she was very young, she was sold to a “master” in her homeland nation in Africa. She then entered into a season of horrific abuse – physically, emotionally and sexually – by her “master” and his friends and workers. One day, she was miraculously rescued and sent to home, then subsequently adopted into a family in the USA which gave her a chance at living a normal life. God broke through her pain and woundedness and her life has been amazingly restored. Her heart is now full of love and forgiveness and she genuinely prays for her former abuser in Africa. Only the power of God’s love can do that!
