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.

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 continues to do amazing work - beyond any human capability without the grace and blessings of God! I've known Nic and Luke since they were young and to see their growth, transformation, and love of God that they share with others is amazing. They have both dedicated their lives, moved their families to Brazil and reach out to those in need every single day. May God continue to bless this ministry so that they can continue blessing others.

Shores of Grace is the real deal - their hearts and lives are 100% for Jesus and helping others. They continue to amaze me with their ministries, worship and love. Supporting them means spreading God's word and love to the nations, helping those in desperate need and helping to end prostitution and the sex trade.

The first time I heard of the work of Shores of Grace, I was captivated. The Billmans and those who work with them are reaching vulnerable people whom are ignored by much of society. They have brought the issue of sex-trafficking to the attention of many. More than raising awareness, the personal involvement that they have in the individual lives of hurting, marginalized people makes their ministry stand apart. The Bethany Project is key in doing this work of mercy! Join me in supporting this ministry!

Nic and Rachel Billman understand the heart of God, and His amazing love for His people. I love listening to their worship music and just knowing that they are in Brazil ministering to men and women who need to know how much that Jesus loves them!! They help those who have been deeply wounded by the world to see their place as God's children. I love what they do!!!

I highly recommend Shores of Grace Ministries. What they are doing in Brazil and what they want to accomplish is amazing. They regularly send out newsletters with pictures of the lives they are touching. They have visited our church (we pastor a church in Maryland) many times and each times the lives of our congregation our touched and changed.

I have known Luke and Nic Billman all their lives. I have watched them grow from babies to adulthood, attended their weddings, rejoiced as their own families grew along with their faith. How God is moving in their lives in truly amazing. Their ministry in Brazil has had such an impact on the lives of those they are helping. To teach these lost ones about Jesus who loves them, to open their arms to them and help them to find a better way is truly a gift from God. May their lives continue to be blessed so they can continue to be a blessing. Nancy T.
