  5. Shortly after 'Project Decorate,' the Lavish girls returned to the strip club where we decorated the dressing room as a simple act of God's love for the girls working there. One of the things we left behind for them was a prayer box which allowed the girls to jot down any prayer requests that they may have and put them in a box where we would later collect them and pray specifically for them. Here are the prayer requests of the girls, partner with us in prayer for them! Thank you for praying, volunteering and supporting this cause - YOU are making a difference!

What is Lavish?

Lavish is a ministry that desires to reach young women in the adult entertainment industry through love.

How do we do this?

A handful of young women bring gifts and offer services to the girls working in strip clubs in the San Antonio area. It is our desire to "lavish" love on these women by providing these gifts and services with no strings attached. Since we launched this cause and have gone into the clubs, we have been welcomed by the dancers, waitresses, bartenders and also by the mangers.

Why do we do this?

We want young women in the adult entertainment industry to know that we love them and God loves them. It was Jesus’ habit to hang out with those that the “organized religion” had rejected. It is our aim to follow in Jesus' footsteps and put actions to our faith. In Mark 2:17, Jesus said, “I have come to call not those who think they are righteous, but those who know they are sinners.”

1 Corinthians 13:4-8
4 Love endures long and is patient and kind; love never is envious nor boils over with jealousy, is not boastful or vainglorious, does not display itself haughtily. 5 It is not conceited (arrogant and inflated with pride); it is not rude (unmannerly) and does not act unbecomingly. Love (God's love in us) does not insist on its own rights or its own way, for it is not self-seeking; it is not touchy or fretful or resentful; it takes no account of the evil done to it [it pays no attention to a suffered wrong]. 6 It does not rejoice at injustice and unrighteousness, but rejoices when right and truth prevail. 7 Love bears up under anything and everything that comes, is ever ready to believe the best of every person, its hopes are fadeless under all circumstances, and it endures everything [without weakening]. 8 Love never fails [never fades out or becomes obsolete or comes to an end].

What is our current project?

This upcoming project in May 2012 will be decorating girls’ dressing room. We are going to glam it up with girly fabrics, wall décor and encouraging words posted on each girl's locker. We are also going to dress up the bathroom and put in nice bath and body products for them to use. Every time they come to work their shift there will be a reminder long after we have left that they are loved by God. We will leave them with our contact information should they desire to talk with us further, want to meet with us or if need prayer for anything.

What happens after we leave?

The founder of Lavish is also the founder of Indulge which is a home based ministry that specifically reaches out to young women. It is a girls’ night in that is hosted in a home twice a month and invites young women from all backgrounds to come together to share in a gourmet dinner and learn about God. We extend an invitation to the girls working at the strip club to join us for these evenings.

What is the main objective?

It is our goal to show love to young women who need to know how precious they are to God. We are NOT going to preach but allow love to speak for itself while not asking for anything in return. We believe that through demonstrating Christ's love that He has shown each of us personally we can make an eternal difference in their lives, encouraging them to draw closer to God and develop a personal relationship with Him.

How can you be a part?

1. Partner with us in prayer. We believe that prayer prepares the way for us before we ever go on any trips to the strip clubs. It is essential to our success that we are spiritually prepared and God prepares the hearts of those we are reaching out to.

2. Raise awareness. Many young women in this industry feel that they have no other options. Stripping can often be the “gateway” into drugs, alcohol abuse, depression, emotional instability and sometimes prostitution.

3. Partner with us by making a financial contribution to go toward our various projects and materials. Check out our videos to learn more about our current projects. vimeo.com/user9687997/videos
