A few years ago, I had stumbled across an interview (I think on YouTube) of a woman named Annie Lobert. She was talking about her life and how she found Jesus. She had wrote a book about how she found Him.
Fast Forward to last year, I finally decided to read her book. I normally don’t read non-fiction books, but I wanted to see what really happened to her. But when I downloaded the book, I realized I had the Spanish version. So I painstakingly translated (through bing and google translate) the book into English. I would highlight chunks of it, translate them, and then put the chunks into Word. It took a long while, but it was worth it. Although when I read it some of it wasn’t translated right, but that was ok.
The book is called Fallen: Out of Sex Industry and Into the Arms of the Savior. Annie Lobert was a prostitute. She got into the prostitute business from a friend who claimed you could make a lot of money and you don’t have to do anything sexual. Which was actually a lie. Yes, she made a lot of money, but she was forced to do sexual things. She was also abused by the clients and her “boyfriend.”
She got out of the business when she almost died from a drug overdose. She prayed from Jesus to save her, and He did. From then on, she talked to other prostitutes about leaving and turning to Jesus. Some did and some didn’t. She ended up founding a safehaven for the prostitutes and victims for sex trafficking called Hookers for Jesus. She came up with the name because Jesus says to be fishman of people.
This was a great book. I’m glad that I finally read it even if it was in Spanish. It’s really sad that she had to go through all that.
