April is National Child Abuse Prevention Month, and while child abuse sadly takes on many forms, one of the areas of greatest concern is sexual abuse, including child sex trafficking.
Beulah’s Place founder Andi Buerger literally suffered from sex trafficking her entire childhood – from when she was six months old until she was seventeen years old. Her immediate family were often the perpetrators. Today, Buerger runs a home for adult teen women with the goal of keeping them away from traffickers and others predators and pointing them on the right path in life.
In this powerful interview, Buerger details the abuse she suffered, how “God intervened” to turn her life around and the changes she’s seeing in the young women she serves. Buerger also explains how sex trafficking is happening in virtually every community in the U.S. and often right under our noses. She offers tips on how to spot a possible abusive relationship and what to do when you suspect illegal activity but cannot prove it.
