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