The night was amazing! We talked with managers. We were able to hug and encourage at least 30 dancers face-to-face and many others through our love gifts and just smiles. We saw old friends and made some new ones! Girls were wearing the bracelets we gave! Some of the girls even gave us some of their own candy stash! We sat down and chatted with many women!
My favorite part of our visits is hearing the life stories of the women we encounter! Often the world forgets that these ladies are real people, with real feelings. I love to hear about what's going on in their lives, whether they go to school, have children, their struggles, their joys and their dreams. And I love having the opportunity to encourage them on their journey in any way I can.
I am always blown away with how God intersects our lives and I love having the honor to illuminate his workings in our world! I believe with all my heart that Jesus loves exotic dancers! He is working in their lives in the same way that He works in the life of anyone else. He doesn't see our professions, He sees our hearts and loves us dearly because we are his children!
