A message from our lovely friend Jenny…
“Hi my name is Jenny. I have been married to Michael for 26 years and we have two great kids, Daniel 20 and Abigail 17. I am part of the New Life Church in Dorking and I work part time for Aviva as a client administrator.
To celebrate my sixtieth year I want to do something different, something I have never done before, something from which others will benefit. I would like to raise £1000 for Be Me project.
I have chosen this charity because it is local to my home town and it helps secondary school age girls who have self-esteem issues. Having experienced these sort of issues myself the work that the Be Me team are doing is very close to my heart.
My intention is to have my head shaved. To have an All American Buzz Cut! But not all at once. Half of my head will be shaved at my place of work. Then four days later I will have the other half shaved off at church on the Sunday!
You can donate on my Just Giving page and I will also be running a raffle.
To keep things really interesting I am suggesting that if you would like to donate this charity, you can chose to “save me” from the big haircut by posting a comment to that effect. Or you can comment “go for it”. The most votes will decide my fate! Either way, Be Me project will benefit.
I know who I am, I am happy being me, and I can even be me with very, very little hair!!”

Our friend Justin is cycling 100 miles in this weekend’s Prudential RideLondon event to raise vital funds for Be Me project. With the help of your sponsorship, we will be able to grow the project and reach many more girls and women in the near future.
Thank you Justin and good luck this Sunday!
If you would like to sponsor Justin, please visit his Just Giving page.
Thank you 🙂

When we started Be Me Project in September last year, we had a strong sentiment growing in our hearts that many girls and woman needed help with their struggle with low self-esteem. Sadly, it has become more and more apparent that girls everywhere suffer with severe self-criticism, loathing and a sense of being worthless. How wrong this is.
Be Me project provides a curriculum for women of all ages to learn three core elements about themselves: That they have identity and purpose – and that is the truth. We believe that these core values are instrumental in creating a healthy sense of self-respect and love.
The Be Me team are volunteers and are not counsellors, but we have a heart to help women of all ages and have seen this realised over the last year – we have so far run the course for 40 girls in the past year.
A couple of months ago we were invited to Nepal by a ministry called Maya. Our contact, a close friend called Shonnie, works with girls who she has rescued from prostitution. In Nepal, the caste system ensures that a large number of women are deemed ‘worthless’ and therefore turn to an industry such as prostitution to provide the most basic of necessities. This can even happen with disabled people. It was such a privilege to take Be Me Project there to demonstrate to the most underprivileged ladies that they have real worth and value.
We were so blessed to be able to share Jesus’ love to these people, which is truly a ‘love with no judgement’!
This is what we stand for. We seek to show all women that we meet that they are loved unconditionally, not only by us, but by God. And that is the best news we can share.
Within our visit to Nepal we were taken with the Maya Ministry team to a dance bar, where we were able to befriend some girls and asked them whether they would like to attend Be Me project. One lady from the dance bar came to our course and joined in with five other ladies. It was such an honour for us to massage their hands and spend time loving ladies who have unfortunately chosen (perhaps of no choice of their own) to work in prostitution.
We are hosting an event tomorrow night to share more of our experiences in Nepal and to thank you for your continued support and prayer. The Upper Room (entrance next to Cotes) St Martin’s Walk, Dorking. Tuesday 19th July at 7.30pm. We look forward to seeing you!
Be Me project have also had an opportunity to buy merchandise that we will be selling here in the UK, to support the work in Nepal.

The Be Me team were delighted to attend the celebration of Mercy UK’s 10 year anniversary last weekend.
Mercy UK provide a six-month residential Christian discipleship programme for young women aged 18-28, which gives its recipients the opportunity to experience God’s unconditional love, forgiveness and life-transforming power.
It was an amazing evening of stories of restoration and healing, music and great food. It was wonderful to hear how God has provided for the ministry over the past decade.
It was such a privilege to be invited, praise God for the incredible work Mercy does.
