Hey friends. Sorry ive been out a few days. A lot has happened but I am currently in a bad state of mind. I admit I do not have the best mental health, life has left me plenty of baggage to sift through. I am trying to make the best of it though.
I needed to talk about my character a little bit. This character was given to me in a dream about ten years ago when I was a baby christian. I was also exposed to a problem that has become a global epidemic - human trafficking.
Recently, at least 40.3 million people worldwide are currently being enslaved for forced work and others (including children) are sold into sex slavery. It is a very scary and unfortunate situation and with this book I am going to help expose this evil. My own city is a hub for human trafficking to and from Mexico. People have been arrested for this and there were Chinese restaurants shut down after they discovered human enslavement going on.
My character is a young man who experiences the human trafficking underground world. He survives it and is rescued, unfortunately, his life is darker because of it. His only bit of peace is found in his faith in Christ. He is the kind of character who gives young men a voice who in reality today need to receive healing for abuse and enslavement, mental erosion and loss of purpose. He is a character who borrows themes from David in the Bible and has to learn to slay his giants and repent from the messy situation he gets himself into that so many young people do when they end up being spiritually and mentally damaged.
He is an overcomer, and making this character was quite tricky because I had to make him the protagonist while also turning into his own antagonist in the leading incidents. He has to learn to repent and take responsibility and build himself again. This character will touch many lives and open eyes, it is a message of hope and restoration and knowing how to ask for help when needed and when to fight and when to be still. God bless you all.
