Please join the Lisieux Community in wishing Trisha Henderson all the best as she leaves us at the end of this month to begin a new job. As our Survivor Advocate she has been a source of inspiration to our women for the past year, and we know they will miss her. But we have no doubt that she will serve well in her new capacity. We are grateful that this step means additional women will now be provided the tools they need to be free from a life of prostitution. It has long been our contention that the population of vulnerable women in Memphis is vastly underserved, and we are pleased that other ministries are standing beside us in that gap.
During this transition, we would like to assure all of you, especially our donors, that the Lisieux Community’s work with the women we serve on Summer Avenue will continue. We have a solid base of volunteers who go out with us on Thursday evenings to distribute food and offer encouragement, who serve in the Laundry Love outreach, and who assist us with getting women to appointments. We are also aggressively pursuing options for opening a drop-in center.
Please continue to pray for the Lisieux Community, and add the new ministry to which Trisha has been called to your prayers.
