Episode 10 - Kelly's Story

Kelly Patterson

Kelly is a Human trafficking survivor, pastor and author from Rapid City, South Dakota and was a child when traffickers targeted her in her South Dakota hometown. She became the victim of "a grooming process" that trapped her in a life of sexual exploitation until she was almost 22.  Kelly is one of the estimated 1 percent of trafficking victims who escaped and survived.  In our conversation, shares how she became a victim, the horror of being a trafficking victim and how by God’s grace she was able to escape from her circumstances.  She also shares how God supernaturally intervened to help her heal and to move forward in her life to be the wife, mother, Pastor, author, speaker and Human trafficking advocate she is today.  Her God glorifying story will rock your world!

Additional Information

Kelly survived "Ring Trafficking" from a very young age.  Her story will open your eyes and break your heart.  She was helped by a bunch of "crazy Christians".  Kelly reached out to Billy Graham Ministries and found the love of the Holy Spirit.  She was able to see through the 'fog' and find her way out.  She's never looked back!                                                                                        She feared sleeping until God spoke to her in a dream.  He knew the depths of her fear and the depths of her soul.  She knew from that night forward her healing would be whole.                               

Kelly's favorite Scripture:  II Corinthians 1:3-7  3Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, 4who comforts us in all our tribulation, that we may be able to comfort those who are in any trouble, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. 5For as the sufferings of Christ abound in us, so our consolation also abounds through Christ. 6Now if we are afflicted, it is for your consolation and salvation, which is effective for enduring the same sufferings which we also suffer. Or if we are comforted, it is for your consolation and salvation. 7And our hope for you is steadfast, because we know that as you are partakers of the sufferings, so also you will partake of the consolation.
