The GRACE Project
Hi, I am Shannon Jones, from Guyton, Georgia. Within our local community, we are surrounded by women and children who are victim to human trafficking or find themselves pregnant and have nowhere to turn. Local organizations are available for counseling and medical assistance; however, women who seek housing in our surrounding counties still have no choice but to return to an abusive environment once their baby is born.
In Ephesians 2:8, the Bible reminds us, "For it is by grace you have been saved, through faith -- and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God". We have to show these women they are loved and can live in joy and peace by accepting God's grace. By taking a step of faith, they can learn of the abundant life He has in store for them. But they can't do this alone. They need somewhere to go. They should be able to find refuge in our community, without having to look somewhere else for help.
My husband, Adam, and I are taking that first step. We will be working with local non-profits to prepare a safe place for these women or children to go. One day at a time. One hurdle after another. But we need your help to make this happen and become an inner source of pride and safety within Effingham County.
The Grace Project will one day offer a home to those in need. We have property to obtain and restore, which alone is over $650k. Other expenses will follow once we get established, but we can't do this by ourselves. We need the community to come together for our residents and work on a solution. Please help, all proceeds will go toward the purchase of the property. Once we have it, we can begin restoration, which we will provide estimates for as we go.
Please pray about how you can help. All donations are welcome, no matter how small. You can make a difference in the lives of the women and children that we see every day. We don't know what they are facing, but we know God can equip us with the tools to help.
Blessings In Christ,
Adam & Shannon Jones

This morning, a friend reached out to me with her story, which brought tears to my eyes. She was once pregnant and victim to an abusive boyfriend, and I had no idea. So thankful to God for bringing her out of that situation and for The Living Vine for their program to help her and others.
We can do this, there are more girls and children out there who need help. Thank you for your prayers and offers to get on board, we need you!
