From the Executive Director's Desk 
It is hard to believe it's been ten years since NSM began! Time has gone by quickly, and it's mind boggling looking back on the many blessings NSM has received from God. In Hebrews 13:5-6 it says, Keep your life free from the love of money and be content with what you have for He has said, “I will never leave you or forsake you.” So we can confidently say, "The Lord is my helper; I will not fear; what can man do to me?” We have found this to be true over these years. God has led us through some tough times, uncertain times and times of joy. We know it is a privilege to serve Him by all of us doing what we can to set women free. Thank you for your part in this – it has eternal consequences!  
Better Together
After much anticipation, NSM is thrilled to announce that EmergeFree has joined our ministry! By working together, we are able to expand NSM’s Outreach front line impact. EmergeFree’s focus has been around building relationships with women working in massage parlours and those working on the street (aka The Stroll). NSM staff and volunteers will be able to continue building relationships with these women. By meeting women where they work, we are a trusting face available for conversation and community. Our desire is to walk alongside these women, offering access to resources and services, as well as a way out. This collaboration will greatly extend NSM’s reach. Would you pray along with us for this new Outreach opportunity and the impact it will bring in the lives of women?
Highlight Reel
Over fifty women from the community came to the Outreach Thanksgiving Community Dinner! Thanks to everyone who donated time, items, or funds to make this possible.

After watching an encouraging video from a Christian inspirational speaker, three women surrendered their lives to Jesus for the first time!  
We also celebrate with three women who have worked hard to successfully complete their 6 month recovery milestone!  
You are invited to commit to praying for all these women as they begin to learn and discover their new identity, and continue their journey to break the cycles of addiction and abuse.  Thank you for partnering with NSM through your prayers.
THANK YOU to Experience Church and the amazing people who donated time to spruce up our Sparrow Houses. The Experience Church team was busy removing distressed furniture and cleaning up the gutters. Their team helped make our women’s homes more beautiful and safe. We are grateful for this team and their love and care demonstrated in such a tangible way!
Volunteer Training 
We had such a great night at our first volunteer training since the pandemic began back in March. It was amazing to get together! We had over 70 people at the (socially distanced and COVID safe) training. Phil, Becky, and Denise shared and many NSM staff were also there to meet with past, present, and new volunteers. NSM is hosting another volunteer training event November 2nd at 7pm via Zoom for those looking to get more engaged.
