‘All I was good for was sex’
This is our City shares the story of Jessica Richardson, who as a teenager was working at a restaurant when she was deceived into joining a charming man on his “travels.” Jessica, who had been sexually abused as a child and lost her father when she was 10, was easy prey, and he turned her out into prostitution and pornography.
Now a follower of Jesus and member of City Bible Church in east Portland, Jessica is one of the best-known survivors in the city, speaking to churches and schools to expose the lie that says anyone is only good for sex and testify to Christ’s transforming love and acceptance.
You will be deeply moved by Jessica’s transparency about her struggles, her life on the street, and the freedom, hope, and joy she has discovered through Christian community. After watching Jessica’s video testimony here, you can read a Q&A with her here.
