ADVANCE FOR USE MONDAY, JULY 24, 2017 AND THEREAFTER-In this Tuesday, May 9, 2017 photo, Thiago Silva speaks during an interview at his home in Marlborough, Mass. Reflecting on his life, the 34-year-old has one regret _ that he didn't leave the Word of Faith Fellowship church sooner. For years, Silva said the church's ministers _ especially founder Jane Whaley _ controlled every aspect of his life. "I didn't live until I escaped," he said. (AP Photo/Rodrique Ngowi)

ADVANCE FOR USE MONDAY, JULY 24, 2017 AND THEREAFTER-In this Tuesday, May 9, 2017 photo, Thiago Silva speaks during an interview at his home in Marlborough, Mass. The former member of the Word of Faith Fellowship said he was excited when he boarded a plane in the Brazilian city of Belo Horizonte to fly to the church's youth seminar in North Carolina in 2001. He was 18 and expecting to use his tourist visa to meet new people and visit the U.S. He soon learned, he said, that there would be "no happiness." "Brazilians came here for labor. I'm telling you, that's it," Silva said. He called the treatment "a violation of human rights." (AP Photo/Rodrique Ngowi)
