In 2010 it is estimated that 40,000 sex workers were active during the World Cup in South Africa. Now four years later, the World Cup is on its way to Brazil, a country already known for its exploitation of sex workers. The government of Brazil has legalized prostitution for this event. This means that hundreds of thousands of women & children will be at risk for trafficking, violent sex crimes, disease, drug abuse and death. " In the summer of 2013 I had the opportunity to see 4 children pulled off the streets of Brazil and placed in a rescue home where they were given a safe environment to live in for the very first time. God broke my heart over the injustice and exploitation of Brazil's women and children. So in the summer of 2014, just as the World Cup begins, I will head back to Brazil to be a part of God's rescue mission for the vulnerable. "
I will be working alongside Nic & Rachell Billman of "Shores of Grace" ministries as we reach out to the exploited women & children of Brazil. "
With YOUR prayers &partnership! In order to fund my three month ministry of street outreach, rescue housing placement, and discipleship training, I am trusting God to provide $4,000 which will cover all of my travel, housing, healthcare and provisional needs.
Will you join me in partnering with God to reach Brazil's exploited with the love of Christ? " You can give right now at:" www.gofundme.com/MaddyBack2Brazil"
