From December of 2009 to January 2012 Josie was a vital part of the Vision International team, a ministry founded by Brian Essary to reach the lost and unreached people groups. Over the last ten years Vision International has seen over one million people come to Christ through mass crusades and hundreds of churches planted as a result. When Josie was seventeen years old God birthed a dream in her heart to see young women restored in the love of God. Today that vision has become a reality. She started a new department of Vision International called Signature of Beauty; focusing on rescuing young ladies who have been sold into the sex slave trade in India and other parts of the world. Josie’s love for Jesus has compelled her to give her life for the cause of the gospel.
Josie has recently relocated to Brazil as a full-time missionary. Her vision is to empower this generation to boldly proclaim the love, freedom and healing power of Jesus Christ to the lost and hurting around the world. Her heart in accomplishing this in Brazil is to bring the light of the living gospel to the indigenous people groups who are located in the jungles and villages. She desires to stir a fire in the heart of the body of Christ to be confident in who they are and to make an eternal impact in the generation for the kingdom of God!
