One of PPM’s partners in Memphis, Sandra, works with the Lisieux Community, an organization that exists to empower women who are survivors of trauma, addiction, and prostitution. Their work provides much-needed resources in the neighborhoods where these are common issues. We are grateful for her partnership and for all the teams who have come to support her work, as well as our many partner churches in the area.
"We at the Lisieux Community are grateful for the relationship we have established with Praying Pelican Missions over the last five years. We have been privileged to work with teams from across the United States to enable us to do the work here in Memphis. They have built a shed to store products needed to care for the women we serve. They built a pavilion for the women to have a safe outdoor space to be together or to have group time together in the course of their recovery. They have deep cleaned the house and painted for us.
In addition to the work done on our behalf, we have had encouragement and caring support from the PPM leadership as well as the mission teams. Lots of hugs and prayers and best wishes have been exchanged.
We have also been able to provide education about sex trafficking and see conversations started within the mission teams about how it affects each of us and what each of us can do to protect ourselves and those we love.
I wouldn't trade the time we have spent with these teams! My hope is that it has been mutually beneficial."
-Sandra, Lisieux Community, Memphis
