Dear Family, Friends & Associates,
About 2 years ago I sat in a church sermon and heard the words of a man who spoke about girls being trafficked over in the Philippians. I knew this happened but really never thought about it. Listening to him talk about poverty like we have never seen, he told about mothers selling their daughters for food, girls selling their bodies to survive, women that have been cast out of their homes because their husbands didn’t want them and other unimaginable horrors. His testimony brought tears to my eyes and my heart began to ache. I thought about my own daughter, who was age 7 at that time. I wanted to hold on to her hand and never let go. God spoke to me that day.
As you may already know, I have been a hair stylist in the industry for more than 20 years, an Educator for 20 years and now a salon owner for over 3 years. My husband and I named our salon unDONE for the simple reason that God was not done with us, just a coincidence at that time. But God knew what he was doing and he was doing it well. He was preparing our hearts for something greater than we ever thought about. He planted a seed what was going to flourish.
Psalm 10 17-18 says “You hear, O LORD, the desire of the afflicted, you encourage them and you listen to their cry, defending the fatherless and the oppressed in order that man, who is the earth, may terrify no more.”
So I took actions on Gods word. I got more involved with the Justice program and found a group of stylists with the same passion. Last year God planted another seed that he wanted me to go to Thailand and share through Destiny Rescue http://www.destinyrescue.org/us/ (in Thailand). I became more involved with a group of stylists and we became “Beauty to the Rescue”. Destiny Rescue’s primary purpose is to RESCUE THE SEXUALLY EXPLOITED AND ENSLAVED. But, once these people are rescued, they must be restored. That is where the Destiny’s Salon (http://www.destinyrescue.org/us/events/our-first-salon-is-now-in-business) comes in. We are presented with an opportunity to share our gifts as stylists and help these women learn a viable trade, outside of the sex industry.
On October 12th myself and 6 other stylists will embark to Bangkok Thailand for a 9 day trip. We ask first for your prayers. If you care to donate money then please write all checks out to:
Destiny Rescue (directly benefitting the salon) or
Inside out Salon (for trip expenses)
You can mail them to 10249 W. Treeline ST., Boise Idaho 83704. You will receive a tax deduction form for all donations given.
Please feel free to call, email or write with any questions.
