#12 A Mission of Love to the Strip Clubs of Austin- Interview with Brenda Hughes of First Love

Brenda Hughes is not your typical “church lady,” with an edgy undercut and sleeves of tattoos, but this is what the employees and performers of Austin-area strip clubs have endearingly named her. Multiple times a year, Brenda and her small team, dive into the world of exotic dancing to bring a message of love. She never overtly talks about Jesus unless prompted. She is there simply to show that no one is too far into darkness to be reached with love and light. This episode is a very candid conversation that contains some mild swearing and we are talking about strip clubs sooo…. keep that in mind if you listen with your kiddos around.

To help support First Love, contact us on our Facebook page and we will put you in contact with Brenda.

Thank you for listening and please take a couple of minutes to leave a review if you haven’t yet!

We appreciate your support in giving these amazing people a platform to share their stories.
