Pink Cross Reaches Thousands at AVN Las Vegas Porn Convention

Pink Cross GirlsPink Cross Foundation passionately reached out to thousands of porn stars and porn fans offering love, hugs, free gifts and Bibles, the truth about pornography as well as prayer and ministry right in the middle of a porn convention!

God really showed up and did AWESOME things among us at this convention and we want to wholeheartedly thank those of you who supported us!

SOME of SHELLEY'S FAVORITE HIGHLIGHTS:
1) Team members April, Jan and Heather were ordained by Shelley right outside the convention before we went in. Shelley ordained these faithful servants as Chaplains so there would be FOUR ordained Chaplains ready to serve and offer ministry and prayer.

2) Being sent by God to go to the top of the Stratosphere Tower which is the tallest free standing observation tower in the United States to prophesy and pray over the nation and the porn industry was wild! God made me read from Zechariah 13 and 14 and to declare the coming of Jesus as well as pray for those who are trapped by the lie of porn and for our nation to return to the God of Jesus Christ so our great people can be healed. It was a really heavy moment for me and I could barely stand under the power of God.

2) Another great move of God was when we handed out pink bags full of goodies, makeup, Bibles, STD info, DVDs, CDs and more to Porn stars and some came by our booth to receive prayer. One precious woman literally fell into my lap in tears and I was able to meet with her privately to talk about getting her out of the industry. Please keep her in your prayers!

3) Heather, Scott and I stood outside the AVN Awards Show and prayed for porn stars as they walked down the red carpet. It was a miracle we got in front as there were thousands of screaming fans.

We also gathered as a team and prayed powerfully against wickedness in the porn industry while praying God would intervene and rescue those trapped in porn. We walked around to every corner of the convention and prayed holding up the Word of God. Shelley read the Word of God out loud for four days straight while other team members prayed and prophesied. Fans and porn stars were shocked, touched and not sure what to really think of us. But they definitely knew God was visiting them and we aimed our prayers at many porn stars believing they will be out of porn this year so EXPECT HUGE miracles to happen in the porn industry this year! Already SIX women have come to us for help!

I could go on and on but I'll let the other team members share some of their highlights.

“Out of all the conventions that I have thus far attended with the Pink Cross, I do believe that this was the most impactful and powerful. I saw God move in ways that I hadn't experienced before, and I know that the Holy Spirit was at work in that dark arena. Hundreds and hundreds of seeds were planted, and I got to share my testimony and my Lord with numerous individuals. Among them was one particular divine appointment that the Lord gave me. On Saturday, I was able to present almost the entire gospel message to one of the fans. When I asked him how a person gets to heaven, he said by being a good person. I was able to clarify that salvation is not based upon works, but a personal relationship with Christ, and why Christ died on the cross. I encouraged him that a porn convention was not the place that God wanted him to be, and he agreed. He took a couple of Bibles. There was definitely conviction there.

On Saturday morning, Jan and I were ordained by Shelley, right outside the Convention Center. It was powerful!!! She prophesied over us, and pointed out what our strengths are, and how God is going to use us. It was a spiritual re-affirmation from heaven, and I was humbled to know that He loves and trusts me that much. After the ordination, I felt stronger than ever, and I walked into that convention fully confident that God just did a mighty work, and that He would continue it. Indeed, He did. We flooded the convention hall with prayer as we walked around and prayed over every single production company. We prayed judgment and deliverance, and I know that the Holy Spirit was guiding all of our prayers, and literally spoke through us to proclaim His word, and judgment upon the porn industry and the kingdom of darkness.”

Former Porn Actress Jan Meza:
“AVN 2010 was amazing. I saw and felt Gods spirit move greatly throughout the whole convention. I was sick and riddled with pain, a mysterious sickness came upon me right before I was going to leave for the AVN and wasn’t sure I’d make it there, but God empowered me to go, HIS strength and mercy was upon me so that I could take my place with The Pink Cross Foundation and help HIS light be seen and HIS word be heard. I saw Gods plan unfold and lives touched, I saw prophecies fulfilled. I was also ordained a chaplain through the Order of Saint Martin which was extremely humbling and something I take very seriously.

The Pink Cross was able to bless hundreds of men and women with Christian CD’s, Christian books, Bibles, informational pamphlets regarding STD’s and the law; we were able to reach those working in the sex industry with gifts to show them how God loves them and values them, but also to educate them about the negative affects of the porn industry. I reached out to one woman in particular who had been a victim of the porn industry and a struggling alcoholic, she was considering returning to the porn industry to do cougar films (women 40+) she was at a loss because she felt it was all she could do to support herself financially even though she had been out of the industry for over ten years. I prayed with her and talked with her for a long time after which she promised to reconsider her options and seek help. The Pink Cross could not continue to reach out to people if it were not for the support of our Christian brothers and sisters, thank you for believing in us, thank you for helping God to work through us, thank you for your prayers, and thank you for your faithfulness. To God be all the glory!”

Former Porn Actress Jenni Case:
I had attended this same convention about 15 years ago when I was only 18 years old. I went to it and signed autographs and had my picture taken with fans, etc. I attended this for about 3 years in a row but I had not been back to it since then. The first thing that I realized is that God was going to send me back there to help others. God was going to use my past to help others there and kind of "make up" for the damage that was done. I also think that going back to this convention helped me in my healing process as well. When I got there, I was surprised how much bigger it was than before. The main thing that blew my mind was the amount of women there who were attending as fans. These women appeared to be mostly "normal" average women. Mothers, housewives, even Grandmas. They were there with their husbands, boyfriends, and friends and family, etc.. I could not believe my eyes, it was like the porn convention was a tourist attraction, a circus, a freak show for everyone to come and see. I prayed that those women would see the truth and prayed to God and he helped me reach out to them and many started coming over to our table and talking to us and taking Joyce Meyer books and other things.

Another thing that was interesting to see was the look on people's faces when they would walk by our booth. They would look confused it seemed like they wondered who we are and what we were doing there. It was almost like something in their head said "this doesn't fit in here" and that would make them interested and come over to out booth to talk to us and find out more. My favorite part of the whole convention was giving the gifts to the porn stars that work at the booths. That was the highlight to me and I loved it so much because all day these women sign autographs,and get pictures taken of them. It seems like people take and take from them all of the time but nobody gives anything to them. These women were so happy to get these gifts and couldn't believe we were giving them something just because we care and we love them.

This porn convention was nothing more than "women for sale" or slavery. I pray that God will save some of these women and men and use them to help others like he has done in my life. I also thought we had a great group of people on our team and I enjoyed meeting all of them and working with them as well. I am so happy to take part in this ministry and help the Pink Cross at Porn conventions and with whatever I can. One thing that I realized from all of this is that ministries like the Pink Cross are needed so much and it is a huge task but God will continue to help us and use us. I wish that something like the Pink Cross had been at the conventions that I went to when I was younger but I am glad they are there now to help because this is a huge problem.

Pink Cross Team Member Heather Jabornik:
“From praying for our nation and declaring God's Word over the porn industry at the top of the Stratosphere - after being driven there by a man named Daniel(very funny) who happened to be a Christian and prayed courage and protection over us before he dropped us off, to meeting and praying with a child of God who wants to leave the industry once and for all, to marching around the Hustler booth 7 times to symbolically represent the victory of Joshua and the Battle of Jericho - only to find out later that there was a 6.5 magnitude earthquake in Northern California's city of Eureka (seriously?) at the exact same time we were marching that was felt all the way to the capitol of CA (where we have been fighting), to having a dude named Jonathan Abraham (really though?) offer to drive us back to our hotel from the convention in an SUV limo, to being asked to lead a porn star through a prayer of salvation on a porn TV show so their viewers at home knew how to accept Christ, to ordaining two ex porn stars as chaplains to the porn industry under the Order of St. Martin, to praying with two other chaplains from the same order directly in front of the very porn company's booth that released a DVD of old footage of women Pink Cross has helped leave the industry, to showing up at the AVN awards show and standing front and center with our toes on the red carpet for over an hour discreetly praying in power as porn stars and pornographers passed just inches in front of us, to equally discreetly anointing with anointing oil and praying over a certain Lifestyles of the Rich and Famous gentleman as he made his way through the crowd, to personally being released in the spiritual through prayer and declaration by my mentor to step into the call of serving an equally in-need industry - only to have the chorus of "You Ain't Seen Nothing Yet" come over the loud speakers the very moment she finished praying.”

Former Porn Addict Scott Smith:
“God did many things at AEE this year. Once again he put us in the perfect location. On Saturday when then fans came in there was a river of people walking by our booth. We were able to hand out over 700 DVD’s that have the Dead Porn Stars Memorial video on them plus many other cards, ex-porn star stories and information. We made friends with our neighbors and had many conversations with them.

There were several big highlights for me. The first is I gave a Bible to one of the porn stars there who has been reading the Bible and talking about it in her blog and Twitter. She was very thankful and I got to share a little of what porn did to me.” and why I was there at the convention with Pink Cross. The second was going to the Palms on Saturday to pray while the red carpet for the AVN awards was going on. There were a bunch of people there. I saw Robin Leach. It was a very powerful time of prayer. Shelley was able to talk to a few porn stars and we prayed for all of them. This was the best convention yet.

God really gave all of us a supernatural gifting as we all worked together and there were no major breakdowns and we all found our rolls and fulfilled them well. We were a well oiled machine. I just hope and pray that the relationships that were begun and that we have been building will continue to be blessed by God. I pray many other who might have been too scared or nervous to come talk to us will seek us out through the website or e-mail. Thanks to everyone who prayed for us. Your prayers were very helpful and very much needed.”

“I must say that God really did show us favor & provision. We were able to move about freely in the heart of enemy territory. My mind, & I believe the rest of the team's minds, were protected. We were also able to pray freely. God was clearly at work & I'm thankful to have been a part of the conference & the team.”
