Big things are happening around here! We can’t even keep up with what God is doing so we’ve decided to shoot out some bullet points to share our big news with you:

  Garrett and Shelley were ordained as Chaplains on April 4 and are now authorized to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ, perform marriages, baptize and confirm and to practice all Biblical and religious activities pertaining to this office in accordance with the laws of the United States, as directed by the Board of Leadership Servants of the Order of Saint Martin. We were ordained by Jeff Hetschel, Vice President of the Southern California Chaplains Assocation.



In a nutshell, we are ordained to serve and love all people with the love of Jesus Christ and especially want to offer these services to people in the porn industry who need help to rebuild their lives after porn. So, if you’re in porn and want out and need to get married, baptized or learn about Jesus, you know who go to. (smile)

We especially want to thank Chaplain Jeff and Chaplain Kurt for recognizing the call on our lives and ordaining us. We are deeply honored.

  We are VERY pleased to inform you that Pink Cross Foundation is exempt from Federal income tax under section 501 (c) (3) of the Internal Revenue Code. The IRS has determined that Pink Cross Foundation is a Public Charity. WOO HOO!!

In a nutshell, this means we can offer tax deductible receipts and are qualified to receive any gifts, properties or transfers YOU want to give us!! After much hard work and waiting for almost 8 months to receive any word back from IRS, we FINALLY received the IRS Determination letter that we are approved and we bawled our eyes out and praised God for giving it to us just in time! Thank you to all of you who stood by us and helped us during this tedious process.

  God sent Shelley a precious and amazing woman who voluntarily left everything she knows and loves to move across the country all the way to California to assist her in the office and help women who are leaving porn. Shelley’s whole life has changed since Heather came along to help her. God finally answered my prayers for a personal assistant. Ladies and Gentlemen, I want you to meet Heather!!!

Heather is an energetic and talented 25 year old who is a graduate of Kutztown University of Pennsylvania with a Bachelors Degree in Professional Writing. On staff for three years with Campus Crusade for Christ’s music ministry, Keynote, she managed and toured with bands, wrote for the marketing department, spent time as a lead singer as well as discipled college students inspiring them to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ back to their campuses. She has a passion to see her generation touched by the power of God as well as help women who are recovering from the sex industry.

Pink Cross Foundation has rented an apartment where Heather can live with women who have recently left porn and mentor them while they are healing from the porn industry. We really need your help to pay the monthly rent and expenses. Heather is an awesome mentor and helper to these women so any help you can give is greatly appreciated.

PS: We are seeking other missionaries who feel called to move to California to help us. If you are serious and have a heart to love and help people in the sex and porn industry please email [email protected] along with your resume. Serious applicants only please. Porn is not glamorous and either is this ministry.

  Pink Cross Foundation went up to California State Capitol on March 10 and 11 to speak with Assemblymembers and Senators about the harms of the porn industry. Three former porn actresses were able to courageously share testimony and educate lawmakers who were shocked and some even outraged to hear about the illegal operations of the porn industry. We brought indisputable evidence and handed out over 30 large packets to lawmakers.

We were offered by one lawmaker to use their office as a home base if we ever needed anything while up at the Capitol. God truly gave us favor and continues to give us favor at the State Capitol. We even found a way to get a packet to Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger so let’s pray he reads it and does something about the abuse happening daily in the porn industry. We plan to go back in the near future and continue educating lawmakers about the illegally operating porn industry. Hopefully next year we see new bills introduced to crack down on the porn industry.
In a nutshell, porn is coming down!!

  Pink Cross Foundation was able to give Maddy, former porn actress Michelle Avanti, a baby shower thanks to many of you who donated. Maddy said she was so blessed and thankful so many people cared enough to give her baby supplies and gifts. We were even able to purchase for her a crib and stroller. She is having a baby girl in mid July so there is still time for you to send gifts and supplies in for Maddy. A sincere thank you to those of you who cared enough to donate. It was such a joy to bless her as she begins this new chapter in her life. Please keep Maddy in your prayers as she rebuilds her life after porn. Please pray she has a beautiful healthy baby girl and for her life and family to be totally restored.

Shelley loves to feel babies kick! Thanks for putting up with me Maddy.
In a nut shell, Pink Cross loves you and is so proud of you Maddy!!!

  Tamra, Jan and Shelley were on MTV’s True Life episode “I’m addicted to porn” where we reached out to porn star Jayden Jaymes. It was actually a great episode and we encourage you to watch it. We will soon add it to our video section so check back soon!
In a nutshell, we love you Jayden and pray you will see the truth and do something better with your life. You are an amazing young woman who is made for greater things than porn!

PS: Please pray for Shelley, Jan and Tamra as we fly to appear on another TV show the end of this month. Lately we have been asked by media and TV shows to share the truth about porn and we need your help and prayers.

We usually have to pay our own expenses to travel and would appreciate any help you can give to us. Our main goal for making media appearances is to spread the truth about the porn industry and the harms of pornography.

There are a million more things I could write but due to space and time, I can only share with you some of the things happening at Pink Cross Foundation.

I want to sincerely thank all of you who support Pink Cross because without you in no way would we be as far along as we are. God is using you to be the hands and feet to reach out to those stuck in porn and those who are struggling with porn addiction. God is also using you in His powerful movement to end pornography for good and heal the families of America.

I am deeply grateful for your love and help,

Shelley
