Thank you for your on-going support of She Dances and for partnering with us to set the captives free. We are really excited to introduce a new opportunity for you to further get involved through a user friendly and secure texting program in partnership with a mission-minded company, i-texts. The concept is simple; you opt in via text message to receive family friendly deals to your favorite stores and restaurants on your smart phone. Every text message that you receive creates funding for She Dances, which means continued hope and freedom for young girls who have been trafficked and sexually exploited. You will receive no more than 3 text messages a day and you can generate up to $54 annually for our organization, just by receiving a few text messages every day. There is no obligation, it’s completely free, and you can always opt out by replying STOP to the messages you receive. We believe you’ll find it rewarding to not only benefit from the local deals you’ll be receiving but to also know that you are making a difference in the lives of young girls every day. Please take a few moments to view the powerful video below and to sign up for the She Dances “Text To Make A Difference” Campaign. Simple and quick instructions are below. Freedom is here.
Just by texting the word “dances”, your e-mail address, and your zip code to 70000 you can support She Dances everyday on your phone by receiving family friendly deals to your favorite places to shop, eat, and hang out. Every time you receive one of these non obligatory text messages, you are raising on-going funding for She Dances. Together, we’ll change lives, one girl at a time.

- Pornography fuels the global sex trade by driving demand into the mainstream of society.
- The word pornography is derived from the roots “porne”, which means, “women in bondage” and “graphe”, which means, “to write about.”
- The average age of first Internet exposure to pornography is 11.
- Often, the forced sexual acts between the enslaved woman/child and the John will be filmed and photographed and then shared elsewhere.
- Studies show that pornography users often seek to act out what they have viewed in porn. Often their partners will not engage in such acts, so they seek it elsewhere – increasing the demand for trafficked women and children to be prostituted.
- Porn users do not and cannot distinguish between trafficked women, prostitutes, and porn stars.
- 56% of divorce cases site pornography as a major contributor to the demise of the marriage.

We plan at least one or two day trips every month for the young girls in our home. These trips allow the young girls to get out of the house, see and explore new things, truly experience their culture without fear of what will happen to them, and of course to have fun. These day trips are also a lot of fun and a breath of fresh air for our wonderful, hard working staff of Honduran women. In the past, we’ve taken the girls to places like parks or little Honduran towns where the girls can eat out, get ice cream, and go shopping with their house moms, also known as their “Tias”. Lots of photos and sing-alongs are always included in this day of fun. Recently, we planned a day trip to the coast for our girls. It was a little further of a drive than our normal outings, but we soon found out that it was well worth it. For most of us, the coast brings back some of the best childhood memories we can remember. But for these young girls in our home that have been brought out of a life of slavery and abuse, there are no memories that don’t consist of pain, loneliness, rejection, and fear. Which explains why as we drove up to the coast and the young girls ran to the beach, they began looking out as far as they could see with tears running down their little cheeks. These tears were not tears of sorrow, they were tears of joy and tears of thanksgiving. These precious girls had never seen the ocean before and never thought that they would get the chance to. The glorious day was spent with lots of laughter, tears of joy, and soaking in the vast ocean. Memories were formed, childhoods were further restored, and the magnificent beauty of God as the creator was revealed to these girls for the first time.
Freedom is here.

There are a few times in life when you meet someone that can impact you in a way that humbles and empowers everything within you at the same time, and one of those people for me is Suzy McCall of Honduras. She’s a woman who radically loves the unwanted, the fatherless, the motherless, and the outcast. She’s a woman who brings prostitutes into her own home with her own adopted Honduran children. She’s a woman who is so filled with the love of Jesus that it pours out of her everywhere she goes and has resulted in an ever growing ministry to the people of Honduras. She’s also a woman who took a chance on a 22 year old who came to her with a dream. A dream to open a safe home for trafficked young girls.
That 22 year old was me, and come to find out, it was one of her dreams as well. She took me under her wing and as my experience and understanding of the love of Jesus and the power of the Holy Spirit grew to a life changing level, God began to move and freedom began to take place as we opened the doors of a safe home in October of 2010. In partnership with The LAMB Institute, founded by Suzy, our home of safety, healing, freedom, and love got off the ground in approximately 2 years of time, which is rather quick considering the red tape in Honduras and the great challenges that anyone would face in any part of the world when doing this type of restorative work. In times of uncertainty and resistance, Suzy always reminded me of who we trust to establish this ministry, Jesus. Now, because of the obedience of one woman who moved to Honduras 20 plus years ago, young girls who were once held as slaves are experiencing new life, and there will be many more to come as we all continue to join together and give hope to one girl at a time.
The College of Charleston Magazine recently traveled to Honduras and wrote a beautiful and real to life article on Suzy that gives you a glimpse into her everyday life, her ministry, and the woman that she is. I would love for you to take a few minutes to read it HERE. Thank you for believing in freedom with us.
