Hookers for Jesus

While we were flipping through channels last night, Mike and I saw a chaplin speaking to a young woman in jail. She was encouraging her to leave her life of prostitution. She spoke kind words...I was paying half attention...and then said she knew a group that could help her. Hookers for Jesus. Um, are you laughing as hard as I was last night?

Turns out they're a legit organization working against modern day sex slavery. I googled them and read the founders bio. Turns out, she has an amazing heart and story. I'm not being sarcastic when I say this is an awesome cause. In fact, the more I read, the more my heart broke. This woman has an incredible testimony. This organization reaches out to girls/teens/women who are victims of human sex trafficing, violence, and the pornographic sex industry. Amen for the the incredible ministry they are doing.

But I'm not going to to lie, the name kills me.
