I spent three months with Shores of Grace in Recife, Brazil, and I am soon heading back to continue my work with them. They fill a role in Brazil that few others do, and the work they do saves and restores lives. They are rescuing kids out of homelessness, abuse, and prostitution. In Brazil, the number of kids stuck in this plight is hard to take in. You can go to Recife and see it for yourself: more homeless kids on one corner than all those you have ever seen in any other place, at any other time, combined. Many have been abused or raped or prostituted, and many of themselves are keeping themselves in a constant high with a bottle of industrial strength glue, to numb the pain in their hearts. Shores of Grace is one of the few ministries working actively in Recife and in all of Brazil to rescue these kids. The first rescue home is open and is already full, with 10 girls whose lives have been saved from a bleak future and given new hope. Everyone here has a huge heart and goes above the call of duty to see lives saved and restored.

We visited Shores of Grace in late June this year (2013) and saw first hand the love their team pours out onto children caught in sex trafficking or abuse, prostitutes and homeless on the streets of Recife, Brazil. Two weeks after we returned to the USA they opened their first rescue home for girls. It was full in 2 weeks! The need is great and they meet it with open arms, much love, safety and provision for these precious ones ranging in age from 5 to 15. Everyone on the Shores of Grace team has a huge heart. Children of the team are just as involved in helping to bring love to these precious girls. They hope to open a home for boys caught in this awful web of sex trafficking.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Increase their team, their income and outreach! The need is so great - 18% of the children in Brazil live on the streets and the majority are caught in sex trafficking out of desperation.

Shores of Grace goes into the worst parts of the cities in Brazil to seek out those caught in sex trafficking, especially children. They are opening their first rescue home so they will have a place to offer these children. They will live there, be fed, be clothes, be educated but especially be loved by the Shores of Grace team. The team pours into children's lives now, calling them to their destiny. The team visits brothels and prays for the prostitutes, bouncers and owners. They go to dangerous parts of town and have church on the street for ones that often church members cross the street to avoid. They don't just bring clean clothes, good food and books - they bring hope! Nic Billman started the ministry and his brother Luke has joined the team which includes Americans and Brazilians. Both Billman families minister together - even the children, who play with the rescued precious ones and share their parents with them!

Shores of grace doesn't just rescue children FROM sex trafficking, they rescue them TO a home of love where they are valued for who they are. They minister that same value to prostitutes and transvestites on the streets of Brazil. I'be seen it first hand and the interaction affected me deeply.

We are so blessed by this ministry. This minsirty was started by Nic, Rachael, Luke, and Alison Billman. We currently are apart of their record label, Shores Music. This ministry goes into the poorest parts of Brazil, rescuing the families involved in the trafficking industry. They move from the deepest parts of the Father's heart, and step out of the comforts of the america to do so. They see Jesus in the eyes of the prostitute. I'm blessed to know them, and be apart of the Shores Family. If you're looking to invest into something greater and more meaningful, please donate to this ministry. www.shoresofgrace.com

My husband and I have a house church in Maryland and are so very honored to know the Billman family. They are sex trade abolishionists whose main desire is to set all captives free and display the true love of the Father!!! We love them so very much.

Shores of Grace is a worship and
missionary ministry currently headquartered in Curitiba Brazil, led by Nic and Rachael Billman soon to be joined by Luke and Allison Billman. Their main focus is setting those in prostitution/sex trade industry free and walking them through healing and restoration; taking the love of the Father to the poor,needy,wounded and the broken people and helping them see their true Identity and value, and equipping and serving the churches in Brazil. The goal of the ministry teams. I believe is to reveal Father God in every aspect of what they are ministering. Sometimes its in the form of leading worship in a church or it could be walking the streets of Brazil and praying ofr people that they meet. The probably # goal besides rescuing the lost ,stolen,broken is that in everything they do... they want to reveal the Father. They take this calling that God has placed on their lives very,very seriously and they believe that it's a calling for the whole church, for every son and daughter of the living God.They are forerunners and they set the example well of living a life of love, compassion and power where signs wonders, miracles and healing and most of all LOVE follow them everywhere they go, just as with King Jesus.They are amazing folks. We love them!!!

These people have given of their lives to help the people they are working with. What greater sacrifice could they give then to live in harm's with their children to help the people. What greater cause can there be to give of your life to save and help others. They are worthy of every support they can recieve.

I've had the privilege of seeing the work of Shores of Grace up close and personally in Brazil and I cannot recommend them highly enough. They are reaching out to vulnerable and hurting people, offering love and hope and practical wisdom and resources to transform their lives. They are undaunted by short-term obstacles as they always keep the long view in mind. They are both seeking to lay a foundation for a long-term, large scale project in excellence, and they are willing to work with whatever they have in moment without complaining.

The work that Shores Of Grace does for the trafficked children in the world is above and beyond anything I have experienced before. While similar organizations focus on awareness, feeding programs, prevention or shelter, Shores of Grace encompasses all of these things with their approach of creating a loving family to change the lives of trafficked children and the homeless child population in the world. No matter what the kids are doing when they encounter them on the streets they meet them with loving arms and walk them through restoration in one of their rescue homes. They are truly world changing history makers!!
