BENEFITING: EXODUS CRY INC
My trip to Brazil consists of 2 parts:
1. During the World Cup that is taking place in Brazil this summer, I'm traveling to the participating cities with a group of volunteers with the desire to counteract the rise of sexual exploitation that is inevitable in major sporting events. Our teams plan on combining 24/7 prayer (for the whole month!) with outreach to prostitutes on the streets and in the brothels. The love of Jesus is the only thing that can heal these girls' hearts and we want to partner with Him to see the captives set free. I will be heading up the outreach portion for the team based in Brasilia, the nation's capital.

2. I will spend another 5 months in Recife, Brazil, volunteering at a ministry called Shores of Grace. The ministry focuses on reaching out to street kids and child prostitutes in the city. The ministry brings church to the streets while also providing a safe house for children that have been rescued from prostitution.
