The stories told by human trafficking survivors who were rescued by Christian missionaries are heartbreaking. They highlight the reality of the plight of more than 20 million enslaved people worldwide.

Here are five quotes from women/children who were rescued from human trafficking:

1. "I'm so ashamed to tell you this. Nancy's my daughter. The real reason I went to the streets was because I wanted to give a different life to my child. When she got halfway through high school and saw the kind of money I was making, she followed me here. I can't make her stop!" — A woman identified in Christianity Today as Vilma, talking to missionary Betsy Hake, who was working to stop sex trafficking in the Honduras.

2. "When I was 10-years-old, I was married against my will to a Brigade Commander. The first time he forced me to have sex, I bled and cried a lot. I was in great pain, but my "husband" had a gun next to him and I had seen him use it before so I tried to stop crying. Every day he called me and demanded sex. Whenever I tried to resist, he beat me to the point of paralysis ... The Brigade Commander had a total of 20 "wives" — some were very young, but most were between 12 and 18-years-old. If the rebels raided a village and abducted a beautiful girl, she would be forced to marry the Brigade Commander." — Concy, a human trafficking survivor from Uganda tells Equality Now. 

3. "My family's contact then told me that to pay the debt, I would be working as a prostitute in brothels (which are legalized in Germany). It was then that I realized that my family's contact was a madam. I refused and called my parents to explain what was happening, but they told me to obey her and do whatever she told me to do. I didn't have any papers and didn't know my rights. She said that if I asked anyone for help, I would be deported, so I didn't think I had any choice but to become a prostitute. My mother begged me to do what they said. I cried every time a man slept with me, because I was brought up Christian." — A Nigerian girl sold into prostitution in Germany by her family, reports Equality Now.

4. "The longer you stay the less hope you have." — Mauri, a sex-trafficking victim who was forced into prostitution at age 16.

5. "I have been in this lifestyle since I was 13, and it has been a pretty rough road. Two months ago i was jobless, homeless, everything-less. I didn't have any hope or any kind of goals for myself. I didn't care. I was comfortable with the lifestyle I was living, but I started thinking I was tired. I told myself, I have this little girl, I don't want the same lifestyle for her." — An unidentified human trafficking victim.
