2015 – May 2016 Highlights

      Comments Off on 2015 – May 2016 Highlights

Even though I haven’t posted in a while due to website issues, we’ve never stopped going to the clubs. God continues to astound me with encouraging words from the girls like “you make our night”, “thank you for coming. you’ll never know how much it means to us.” The one statement that stopped me in my tracks & brought tears… Read more »

      Comments Off on Jan – April 2014 Highlights & Prayer Requests

We’ve had a lot of good conversations in the clubs these past few months. At least two girls have found “real” jobs (as they put it). We are so proud of them!   Below are highlights and  prayer requests from the past several weeks: Cash gave a homeless woman a gift bag. The woman was rather gruff with Cash. She… Read more »

Oct – Dec 2013 Prayer Requests

      Comments Off on Oct – Dec 2013 Prayer Requests

Sometimes we see things we don’t want to see. With the “Three Foot Rule” going away, there’s a whole lot more up close and personal interactions on stage and in the chairs. It brings home the reality of this industry. Almost every girl has told us they want a job doing something else. We pray for God to open doors… Read more »

We continue taking gift bags in the strip clubs and giving them to the girls, bartenders, owners, managers and patrons.

The Past Three Months…

      Comments Off on The Past Three Months…

We’ve been in the clubs the past three months, but I’ve failed to post updates. Lots of good conversations and requests for prayer. Here are highlights: As I walked out of the dressing room and back through the clubs, I saw a dancer sitting on the stage reading the scripture card. She looked up at me and smiled and said,… Read more »

Why Do You Do This?

      Comments Off on Why Do You Do This?

We walked in to a club this past Tuesday night, and two pretty, young dancers were seated at the bar and were obviously new to this club. One girl kept asking, “Why do you do this?” Our answers didn’t seem to be the answers she wanted, and the conversation was interrupted by her having to go on stage to dance…. Read more »

Another first

      Comments Off on Another first

In 12 years of doing this ministry, we had another first:  someone emailed me through the website asking me to come to her club — so we did last night. We were able to go in the dressing room and had a quick prayer with one girl. There were several clubs, modeling studios and massage parlors on this one street corner. We prayed… Read more »

It’s Been Way Too Long

I can’t believe I let more than a month go by without posting highlights. Shame on me! We’ve been in the clubs almost every week since the last post giving out some really cute gifts. In September, we handed out canvas totes that were given to us by Mark Palmer of Home of Hope. What a blessing!  The canvas totes were… Read more »
