NightLight Branson launched in Fall 2012 and is addressing the issue of commercial sexual exploitation specifically in the Tri-Lakes area, which includes the cities of Branson, Ozark, and Springfield, Missouri. NightLight Branson will address exploitation through prevention, intervention, restoration, and education. The prevention team will work with at-risk children, breaking the cycles of poverty and single parent homes by building relationships and sharing the love of God. Read newsletters from Shauna Storey about her ministry with NightLight in Branson.
We aimed in 2016 for 135 journals but collected 139 for NightLight. Shauna Storey will combine our gift along with other items from churches to give to women during the Christmas season as a way to build relationships and help them find hope in the midst of the struggles in their lives.
