Shores of Grace Mission Trip

Hello everyone! My name is Lauren Abbott. Thank you for taking the time to show interest in this opporunity I have that God has placed on my heart!

I have joined a team of people that are preparing to go on a missions trip to Recife, Brazil with a ministry stationed there called Shores of Grace. The focus of this organization is reaching out to those who are in sexual abuse, poverty, prostitution, sex trafficking etc, and walking them through the process of restoration, healing, and truth being spoken over their lack of self worth due to their hopeless lifestyle of being mistreated. Their mission is to free those in captivity, rescue the lost, restore identity, redeem destiny and equip the church. I believe in this mission statement with all my heart and am so beyond excited for the opportunity to be apart of it. 

As a team we will be working hand in hand with these relief efforts in rescue homes, serving the women that get brought in, as well as helping organize and lead street church for the homeless orphan children (18% of the child population is homeless) and homeless/addicted adults of Recife. The need for these outreaches cannot be stressed enough, as they have seen the drug addiction, prostitution and abuse, and crime start at the tender age of 8 - and from experiences I've had, stories I've heard, and broken lives I've seen, these statistics burden my heart and motivate me that much more to follow what God has placed on it!

The money I'm raising is all going towards this trip and will help me cover the expenses of a VISA, travelers insurance, room and board and a very expensive plane ticket. The trip could happen as early as February of next year, so I don't have an over abundant amount of time to raise it!

I hope you believe in this cause as much as I do.
Thank you so much for your consideration, prayers, and financial support, it is more appreciated than you will ever know, and may the Lord bless you for your generosity!
