“What do you mean you are quitting medical school in America to do something so ludicrous and downright insane? You don’t know anything about that kind of life! You were brought up without needs or wants. You are leaving a prominent school like Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine to do some hair brain idea like this.”
“But mother, you don’t understand. I am called by God to do this,” Zoe attempting to reason with her mother to understand.
Anna upset, cried, “God didn’t call you! He doesn’t call you to do foolish things!
“But you always taught me to pray and ask God what is His will for my life. It’s not like I will not finish medical school. I am just taking a break that’s all. I will be back …I promise,” Zoe reassuring her.
Throwing up her hands in expiration, “When…when...? When Zoe, pray tell me! When?”
“When it is finished,” she said slowly as she looked away from her mother’s glares. Not wanting to further upset her mother, Zoe took a deep breath, trying to calm herself before continuing to speak to her mother about her decision. “Mother, please try to understand. It’s not like I woke up one morning and said I am superwoman and I am going to save the world from evil men who abduct young girls and boys and use them as sex slaves. I didn’t. I didn’t even know it existed until I heard about it at a seminar I was attending. I didn’t even give it a thought but a week later, when I had forgotten all about it, the Lord just spoke to me to do this.
“Humph! So now the Lord speaks to you. Out of all the people that attended the seminar, you expect me to believe that He only spoke to you…now you are delirious! God doesn’t speak to individuals in this manner! You sound ludicrous! Zoe, you are wasting your life!”
…“Am I wasting my life to try to help another person live? Am I to stand back in my lap of luxury and do nothing, especially with what I know now? “Zoe’s Eyes”
Zoe didn’t understand why she was called to help victims of human trafficking. She was in her second year at the prestigious Johns Hopkins University; studying to be a doctor, to one day go into the family business with her parents. But all her plans changed when she went to a meeting and heard about the horrors of sex trafficking; she knew she didn’t have a choice. Not concerned with the dangers that lie ahead, she along with Patty, and Kato dertermined to fight the multi-billion dollar business. What she didn’t know that in this business, money can buy even the most faithful, and no one is to be trusted. Only her faith can keep her, and even then she didn’t know if she had enough when faced with the truth about the ugly, evil world that took so many lives before her.
