Review for Shores of Grace Ministries, Joelton, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.

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.

Review for Shores of Grace Ministries, Joelton, TN, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

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.
