True stories of God's love and faithfulness for the broken and abused. A couple of years ago I was shocked to find out that little virgin girls, under the age of nine, are given to fetish priests to serve horrific lives as slaves, to atone for the crimes or sins of another family member. They are beaten, raped, starved and overworked. No affection or kindness is allowed and they live with no hope of ever being freed, as they are isolated from anyone who offers help. Ruled by forces that control them, they live in fear. The stories in this book are told by trokosis who have been liberated through the help of International Needs, and liberated from their fear and suffering by their new found love and faith in Jesus. Linda M. Gillard is the author of Trokosi-Slave of the gods. The author recently traveled to West Africa to gather information on the ancient practice of trokosi, and to interview liberated slaves who now live as free women. It was an unforgettable experience for the author and needed to be told. The culture of enslaving little girls is shrouded in secrecy and is still carried on today. It is estimated that over 30,000 women and children are still enslaved in West Africa.
