Who Is Venture?
"We spend our greatest energies on the worlds greatest needs as an active response to the Gospel." The Gospel inspires action. Venture is a community of people like you and I that choose to do tough things; Venture gives you the opportunity to go the extra mile to help through prayer, giving, serving, and by raising funds through running, cycling, or hiking. They meet dire needs, restore dignity, and show Christ’s hope, reachingsome of the least resourced, trafficked people in Southeast Asia slaves.
“The victims of injustice in our world, need more than our spasm of charity, they need our long obedience in the same direction, they need our legs and lungs of endurance.” –Gary Haugen, IJM
"With every breath, with every word I speak
With every step, with every heartbeat
Jesus let it be for You
For you only
My whole life, all for Your glory"
-Trust It All by Brett Stanfill
If you pour yourself out for the hungry and satisfy the desire of the afflicted, then shall your light rise in the darkness and your gloom be as the noonday. –Isaiah 58:10
Betsy Rae Co started mid January 2016! I have been searching for what the Lord wants me to do for the world. I felt as though life needed more. Around campus and around my friends, people have told me that they like my jewelry and other little pretty things that I have created. I have been told several times that if I sold them, they would be interested in buying them. Driving home from an apple orchard fall 2015, I heard from the Lord that I needed to pour myself into making jewelry, and anything else that floats in to help free people that are captured in human sex trafficking.
Ever since I was a little girl, I have had a heart for the sex trafficked victims. I was frightened to know what really goes on because it is dark and scary spot to go to in my mind. Meliorism is the belief that humans can, through interference, make the world a better place. I believe the Lord is asking me to help and because of Him, I now am looking at it head on and going all in to help little girls from the world’s fastest growing crime. The profits will go to a local ministry, in MN, called Venture; they help stop human sex trafficking. Feeling thrilled about this journey set before me. Pray for hearts to be touched for these people and for creativity for me that only could come from HIM. Follow the company on INSTAGRAM @Betsyrae.co and Facebook to see how the Lord uses this!
