Story:

During the March Outreach, I was approached by a Spanish-speaking dancer. She took my phone from my hand and entered her name and number. When she handed the phone back she said, “Please, please have someone call me who speaks Spanish. I am Catholic, but I want to learn about your Jesus.”

These stories are just reminders that there is nothing in this line of work that has to do with us. The Lord has his perfect plan and He is revealing himself to these women in incredible ways. We are honored to be the ones walking with these women and watching the Lord take a hold of their hearts!

A few weeks ago, a dancer and her family were at a grocery store when a believer walked up to them. This young man explained that God had laid them on his heart while he was shopping.

In moments like these, I can most tangibly feel Christ in the club with us.
