“I finally left the club, because you never stopped coming.”
“I just love Erin! She has to be one of the sweetest ladies I have came across. She thinks so much of us girls and always brings everyone the nicest gifts. I love my new coat!!”
“I Love you Erin and what you are doing! You have made such a difference in my life already in the short time I've known you. You make me want to be a better version of myself and for that I could never thank you enough.”
“Dear Erin-Thank you very and so much for everything you have done for us and given us from the warm food and the goodies (make-up, etc…) to the books and CDs. Bless all of you and your family!”
“Last night I got a letter from Amazon asking me to be a permanent employee :-) my run time is on point to complete the run for Metro within the time parameters :-). And my grades and attendance are on point to graduate this week :-) the only bad thing right now is that I have more bills than money, but I know God has this. I am so excited to see you next few months of my life, and where God leads me. I definitely need lots of prayer warriors, they have been a huge help to me! And I love you very very very very very much!! Without your family I don't know where I would be right now.”
“Hi Erin, I talked to you last night when you had brought the blankets. I just wanted to thank you again for not only your sweet gifts and food that you bring to us, but for your unconditional love and support for girls who many you don't even know personally. If that's not Christ-like then I don't know what is. It was great talking to you last night, and again thank you so much for everything you do. You are truly appreciated and I thought it was important to let you know that nothing you're doing is going unnoticed. Please continue doing what you're doing, it is very uplifting and refreshing to have you around. God Bless.”
"Erin has practically been a catalyst for change in my life."
"God doesn't just exist to cry to when you need help, but also when you are happy, excited, nervous, mad, making a choice, tired, or anything else. He wants to be the first one you come to, not a last resort. My New Years resolution was to develop a one-on-one relationship with God through prayer and the bible. It's already changing my life! I am so excited to see what a whole year, and ten years, and 75 years of this bring!!!"
"i just wanted to say thank you for the stuff you do for us at the club. I heard about the coats (i wasn't there for that) and i was just...idk convicted. we once got a gift bag from you guys that in all honesty pissed me off. It was a book called Redeeming Love. After getting the jist of the book, a woman falls in to prostitution ect. and all I could think was, "Gees, we have to sit here night after night and get propositioned by these men who think just bc we are strippers that clearly means we are hookers, and these churchy ladies roll up in here with their book about being saved from the exact thing that we are NOT!" So from then on i didnt really want anything to do with the gift bags and food and stuff. But, after i heard about the coats, i thought. I wonder if they actually know how it made us feel. Probably not, right? well now you know, and now i know that you guys really do care about us. Iv been taking for granted the very few people who realize that we are not "just dirt strippers" we are regular people with feelings who are judged constantly by everyone around us. I just want you to know that i really appreciate everything. (esp the mary kay stuff lol as im a consultant too) So, thats it i guess. Just thank you, and know that the stuff you guys do are a constant reminder for us that there are people who, without judgement, love us though our sin. We love you too.”
