Breakfast with Nate Larkin

 

Nate Larkin is a former john who bought the service of women for many years.

 

He convinced himself that the girls wanted to do this, and that he was actually helping them to get an education and earn a living.

 

Now he is aware that many of those women are trafficked and brutally treated, giving all their money to their traffickers while the traffickers take their dignity, their self worth and control their lives.

 

Joy Smith is congratulating Nate for courageously stepping forward, and apologizing to the church he pastored, to his wife and to the girls he exploited.

 

Nate is now trying to make restitution to all those young girls by boldly speaking out, informing men not to do it, to waste their own lives, to destroy their families, or use these young girls.  He explains what it cost him as a man. Nate says, "Its not worth the pain, the loss of trust and the betrayal to the family.”
