WE ARE COMMANDED TO GO INTO ALL THE WORLD,
NOT JUST THE PLACES WE FEEL COMFORTABLE.
JESUS LOVES ...
Lace Ministries started in December 2015 with a first outreach to 20 women in one San Angelo, Texas strip club. Today we reach about 200 strippers and strip club staff in nine clubs throughout the greater West Texas area, stretching from Amarillo to Abilene.
Our outreaches are an opportunity to give each entertainer a gift bag filled with cosmetics, jewelry, and other girly things, along with the simple message that they are loved and valued, and that we are here to support them. We also provide prayer and a listening ear when requested.
Prostitution is viewed as an economic necessity by some women in certain regions of Mexico, brought about by conditions of extreme poverty. With this necessity often comes a shunning from the family and the community. Our outreaches in Mexico are similar to the United States, in that we take a message of Christ's love and hope to the streets, meeting with la prostitutas where they are.
Lace Ministries visits drag queens in their venues to proclaim that they are loved by Christ. By providing love and acceptance, we are able to focus on Christ's desire to have a relationship with these entertainers using a non-judgmental approach. Based on the philosophy that hate stems from misunderstanding and fear, we also strive to educate those outside of the drag community to bridge the gap that creates conflict with this treasured population.
