We spend many hours every month on the street initiating friendship with women in our neighborhood. By handing out small colorful gift bags filled with make-up, we develop friendships with our ladies through simple conversation or by offering prayer. We often make personal cards to encourage the women and look for specific ladies who we haven’t seen for a while. These street connections often lead to women attending our manicure outreach which allows us get to know them in a deeper way, finding out how we can serve them in a more long term capacity.
Very often women are afraid or unable to come inside our building. By reaching out to them on the street we bridge that barrier and help them feel more comfortable. Every week we meet 10-20 women in just a short outreach time and most of them are extremely open to talking with us.
