They do the work we all should, helping disadvantaged children and poor people who have lost their hope due to no fault of their own.

The work being done by Shores of Grace Ministries illustrates the core of the Christian gospel: Showing God's unconditional love for the most desperate and un-loved of Brazil's society by teaching them how to love themselves and learn of God's love for them. Our personal friendship with the Billman family has shown us their compassionate, loving spirits and their desire to reach out to those in need. We wholeheartedly support them and the wonderful work they are doing.

Our family has been touched by the Billmans and their worship. We are worship leaders too and hunger to have more of this intimate worship corporately. You can tell they have such a close relationship with God by their songs to the Lord and the strong presence of God with that worship. That presence of God changes atmospheres and lives. That's what this world needs is more of God's presence! To pick up and follow God to a new country with children, and to serve on the "front lines" as they do takes hearing and obeying God and that shows their integrity and true hearts to honor and serve Him. We know they will touch and change lives where ever God takes them because His Presence goes with them!

Shores of Grace is transforming lives and having great impact in Brazil. It's amazing to hear the testimonies and it challenges me personally to want to use my life to help others and bring transformation to different areas of society. Shores of Grace is touching the lives of those that others have overlooked. Shores of Grace is led by incredible people who have laid down their lives and made great sacrifice so that they can bring positive change and transformation to the lives of others.

Nic and Rachel are the real thing. They have left their home and their "stuff" to go rescue lives in Brazil. I have found them to never be too busy to stop to love on you. Their music is some of the best for taking me right into the presence of our Papa God. Their ministry is one that I can give with the confidence that it is being used to make a huge difference in this world for the Best!

The work Nic and Rachel have begun is frontline and proactive. They are not handing out gift bags for a day but loving prostitutes and pimps alike and providing a new life, a safe home, and the forgiveness and love of Jesus, the Loving Papa full of grace and power. Hope to be in Braxil soon, helping build the Beghany houses and encouraging the team.

Nic and Rachael are truely annointed to God's work and have a commitment that goes beyond words. They truely seek to let Go'ds Spirit guide them in ways which many of we Christians pass off as crazy ideas. They were ministering in our church's praise team and as youth pastors at the time God called them to Brazil. They had reached many people here in the US with their music and prayer ministry, but God's plans were bigger. With great courage and trust in God, they went to battle prositution in a country where it is considered legal. We cannot comprehend that here in the US....prositution legal. The truely heart breaking part is the amount of children hurt by this practice. Children orphaned by prositution are on the streets. Children sold into prositution by families. Shores of Grace is seeking to show children and prosititutes the way out....God's way....God's TRUE Shores of Grace with no condemnation, just love.

Shores of Grace Ministries is such an awesome project. So many issues are over looked in our world today, and this group of Missionaries are following God's instructions to help the least of these. The love that these people share with those in Brazil might only be for an hour or even just 5 minutes, but that love might be the only true love that individual has experienced in all or most of their life. Touching out to these individuals is such a life changing opportunity for them. I love supporting this group and I love everything they stand for!

The work Shores of Grace does in uplifiting and empowering to others. They see everyone as God's children without any type of judgment. They go into places that most would not even dare to reach out and talk about God's love and to help those that do not know our Heavenly Father.

This is an organization that I follow to see what they are doing. I love the stories of individual people they are serving. Many organizations are only interested in helping large groups. While this organization does help many people, they do not object to stopping for the "one" person who they can make a difference for. I really appreciate the simplicity and humbleness of heart that this attribute demonstrates.

Would love to be able to help out more. Financially we are hurting pretty bad ourselves. When we are able though we will be sending some support as we have it. Praying for you, though and think what you are doing is great. Hope to sometime in the future open a home for women and children rescued from trafficing. God bless you abundantly!

Shores of Grace is doing amazing work - they are loving the unlovable (those victimized by sex trafficking who are only used and not loved...) simply for love's sake. They are changing lives and not in a corporate, sweeping approach - they take the time to learn and appreciate each person for who they are. Shores of Grace is not looking for boxes to be checked, but they are spending as much time and love as is needed to bring healing and ministry to every individual and then they empower them to live a better life and pass on the love :)
