The Devil should have killed me when he had the chance because now God’s going to use my story to speak life to people. and God cannot reach out to us,” Sioni says. She later forgave her father and let go of the anger she had towards the other men who had hurt her. No longer burdened, Sioni was able to fully open her heart to God and others. “People would expect that I would be emotionally crippled,” Sioni says, “that I wouldn’t be able to live a meaningful or happy life. Yet, here I am today. Everything the devil makes to be ugly, God turns around and makes it beautiful.”

Sioni now spends her time volunteering with her church’s prison ministry, with A Time To Heal Beyond Survival, and speaking at churches to raise awareness about human trafficking. Not only does Sioni support the ministry of Project Rescue (projectrescue.com) as an ambassador, she takes missions trips to minister to children and survivors of sexual slavery and promotes awareness of this growing issue. She has also published her story, Three Times Sold, and prays for it to give comfort, hope, healing and encouragement to others. “It’s to tell other people that if God did this for me, He can do it for you. I’m not different or special. The Devil should have killed me when he had the chance because now God’s going to use my story to speak life to people.”
