I love this podcast because this idea is so amazing and Carrissa has brought it to life!! I’m speaking with Carrissa Bradford, the founder of the Adamo Group. We recorded in the trailer that is the Adamo Nail Bar. Carrissa tells the story of the trailer’s restoration which is so fun to see! I’ve posted pictures below. She is going to be training survivors of sex trafficking in the trade of manicuring and then helping them find jobs! This is such an important part of the healing and restoration story of the survivors. Listen in to hear the vision God has given to Carrissa! I love this woman’s faith! You will be inspired!

I’m excited for you to listen to the latest podcast. I had the best time meeting Avery Harris! She went on a mission trip and her heart broke for the victims of slavery. She decided to do something about it so she opened a food truck in Austin, Texas and called it SAvery Grilled Cheese. (Tune in to the podcast and find out why the SA is capitalized.) She gives 10% of the profits to organizations that are fighting to end slavery and human trafficking.
Find out where the truck is each day on their website www.saverygrilledcheese.com. The food is delicious!
Here are some pictures from our time together. It was my first “live” interview. We had so much fun! The audio is kind of wacky being “live” and all. 🙂 We were outside. The food truck was parked in front of an office building and the people that work there were lining up to buy lunch at the truck. So cool! The truck travels to different spots and events so if you want to book it- check on the website for contact information. Enjoy the podcast!
Today on the podcast, I talk to Sunny Reed! Sunny is the founder of RESTORE. Restore is a movement in the Lake Travis community (in Austin, TX).
