Review: Deliver Me From Evil - Freedom Series #1 - Kathi Macias - October 2011
Growing up in New Zealand , we don't at times realise how blessed and safe though of course we are not short of the horrific crimes that occur but compared to America and other countries we are quite lucky. Deliver Me From Evil touches base on a topic that scarily enough does happen and more often than not , the number of victims are higher in statistics than the number of survivors and escapees. Overseas, we read that Human Trafficking is one of the biggest crimes - Children mainly from countries like Mexico, South American Countries are taken or sold from their homes by their families with hope that they can get a better life over in America - across the borders. However , more often than not the families of the children who are used for Human Trafficking aren't aware of the consequences as they believe their child is better off when in fact -they are worst off as they are beaten, sold, kept in captivity and not nurtured for. These children are sold to the highest bidder and used for Prostitution etc. It is a game to many people , but for the girls -they have to learn to stay strong as only the strong will survive.
In Deliver Me From Evil , we meet Maria who has been taken by her Uncle to be sold at sixteen she is one of the oldest - she has seen many children die in the conditions . One day, she sees a Pizza boy who hopes that one day he will help realise what is going on. That Pizza Boy turns out to be a Preachers Kid - Jonathan who is at a crossroads in his life as he is confused on where he stands for God. When he sees Maria and another girl , he thinks that they are prostitutes and his heart yearns for them as he prays. As the story continues he soon comes to realise that the girls weren't prostitutes as such but in fact victims of humna trafficking . Is this what God is calling Jonathan to do - help save the victims of Human traffickers ? Can Jonathon work with Maria to save the others or will it be too late ?
