Guests: Jessa & John Crisp
Did you know that there are over 27 million victims of human trafficking worldwide? Or that the majority of victims who are sex trafficked are defenseless girls and women? For Jessa Dillow Crisp, she experienced horror at the hands of her biological family. Even worse, she was sex trafficked at the 2010 Winter Olympics in Canada where people profited from her pain. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Jessa shares her story with Dr. James Dobson and how God provided an escape for her at the age of 21 with a path toward restoration. Today, Jessa is a ray of light, helping others. With her testimony and professional skills in counseling and recovery, she has a mission to help others escape some of the darkest sins that humans commit against one another.
After Jessa Dillow Crisp escaped sex trafficking at the age of 21, she earned her GED, began attending Bible college and even met her now husband, John. On today’s edition of Family Talk, Jessa shares that when she started dating John, who was a fellow Bible college student, he epitomized God’s grace and love when she revealed her shameful past to him. John shares with Dr. James Dobson that he told Jessa that she was not defined by her past, but was the Lord’s beautiful creation. 2 Corinthians 5:17 proclaims, “Therefore, if anyone is in Christ, the new creation has come: The old has gone, the new is here!”
On today’s edition of Family Talk, Dr. James Dobson concludes his three part interview with Jessa Crisp and her husband, John, by discussing her survival of sex trafficking as a young woman. They are also joined by Jody and Linda Dillow, the board members of the safe house which rescued Jessa, whom they adopted as a young adult. At first, Jessa, having been abused by countless men, had difficulty trusting Jody as a father figure. But over time, she learned to trust him as he faithfully mirrored her Heavenly Father’s love.
