Author: John G. Stevens


On the Frontline of the War on Human Trafficking

Armed with little more than her own brokenness and God’s transformative power, Dorothy set out to change the lives of trafficked women in Baja California. Seven years after her program’s opening, it continues to bring hope to vulnerable women and children—and to other Christians who, at first, think they have nothing to offer in the fight against human trafficking.

Baja’s Wounded Healer tells Dorothy’s story in two parts. The first section focuses on her wounds and healing—her childhood abuse, her struggles with God, and the rocky road to opening a shelter. The second section tells the stories of women and children who have come through her program, Mujeres Nuevo Comienzo: the woman who escaped fifteen years of enslavement; the mother who came to love a baby conceived in rape; the children who, after being victimized by a pornography ring, learned about “good touch”; and several others who escaped enslavement, abuse, and addiction.

Dorothy and her program are not perfect. Baja’s Wounded Healer does not hide this fact. Yet God continues to use Dorothy and her program to transform lives. And if God can use them, then he can use anyone. Readers will be encouraged by the hope in this book and inspired to do what they can to join the fight. To that end, each chapter ends with a prompt to discuss, pray, or reflect.
