We've achieved my goal of $1000!!! Anything we raise beyond this point will go directly to Strip Church! You all ROCK!
One of the darkest times of my life was working as a nude dancer in a strip club. I wanted everyone to be distracted by my tough-girl lifestyle so no one, not even I, would dare look into my heart.
In my heart, I was ashamed. Not because I was a stripper.
I was ashamed because I desperately longed for unconditional love. I was embarrassed by how lonely and forgettable I felt.
My heart betrayed me by wishing for love and I tried ignoring it with drugs.
One night, God sliced through my cloud of substance abuse, open my soul with His jaws of life, and arrived in my heart like He owned the place and let me see the person He knew I was, the person He created me to be.
God's love saved me 19 years ago.
Just as an addict shares her story with other addicts to help them recover, I wish to share my story with women in the sex industry to offer hope, guidance, and comfort.
The Strip Church does just that.
Strip Church serves, teaches and equips women who hear God calling them to reach out to the women in strip clubs. They don’t judge or shame. They simply find ways to share with women working in the sex industry that they are loved, valued and purposed .
I will be attending mission training through The Strip Church September 28-29th.
I need to raise $1,000 to attend the training (flight, registration, hotel) so I can bring this outreach to Minnesota. I will share what I learn with Oak Hills Church in Eagan and begin the process of spreading love and light in the dark and lonely places I know exist.
If you’d like to, please support my mission training. It is the best way I can get insights from women who have been effectively doing ministry in the sex industry.
Any donations I make beyond my goal will go DIRECTLY to Strip Church Ministry!
