Currently serving as a foreign missionary to the Northeast part of Brazil. I find no greater honor than to share in the great work of spreading the good news...

Isaiah 52:7

"Get yourself up on a high mountain, O Zion, bearer of good news; lift up your voice mightily, O Jerusalem, bearer of good news; lift it up, do not fear. Say to the cities of Judah, 'Here is your God! '  - Isaiah 40:9

Brazil it is...

My name is Danielle. In November of 2014, I moved as a missionary to Brazil. I currently reside in the city of Recife with an organization called Shores of Grace. Founded by Nic and Rachael Billman, Shores of Grace  exists to bring glory to God by revealing Father God’s heart for humanity. We labor to call home the lost, broken, and needy in Recife and surrounding cities in the state of Pernambuco, Brazil. We join the Holy Spirit in bringing restoration and identity to women in prostitution, trafficked and/or abused children, economically poor families/communities, and homeless men, women and children who may also be stuck in a life cycle of drugs and abuse. In April of 2015, Shores of Grace opened a new girl's rescue home named Vila Betânia. This home currently houses 13 teenage girls and 4 babies.

The roles I operate in include coordinating and organizing the function of our missions base, leadership in our project to reach and rescue women in prostitution, and evangelism outreach to all kinds of people in the inner city of Recife. Some days I am giving counseling advice to a team member; other days I am receiving it. At least every week, I am sitting on a dirty street either reading books to children, or prophesying and praying with persons of mental, emotional, spiritual, or economic poverty status. Other days I may be found buying groceries for the ministry, praying with team members to see the kingdom of heaven invade our city,  eating acai with a woman thinking about leaving prostitution, or discipling a teenage girl...

If you ask me what I do, I hope my passionate lip service to tell and teach others about the Trinity matches the lifestyle of power and integrity the Bible instructs Christians to lead. I hope my life speaks love and power louder than my words---whether I am whispering prayers into the ears of orphaned babies, or yelling wildly for Jesus in Thursday intercession.

               : Projects I am involved in :


Father's Love Banquets:  A monthly banquet we hold to shower love and mercy upon the women in prostitution, showing them that hope exists...


Vila Betânia: A process of reaching, teaching, and loving these rescued girls into their identity in Christ. This means living life with them and having fun with them too!


Ministry at the Holiday: Each week a team of us take our hearts of worship, truth of the Word, and our love for people to one of the city's well known hubs for drug and sex trafficking.


Discipleship: Embodying the command to disciple the nations, we start with one person at a time. I meet with various women who have left prostitution to teach them the Word of God, and we practice living life together God's way. 


House visits: In order to tangibly show our support, we do our best to maintain the relationships we have with the women who have left prostitution or are wanting friendship with us.


Street church : We bring the tangible love of God to some of the most spiritually darkest areas in the city through personal time spent with them, a meal, prayer and the sharing of the Word.
