We have a similar story here in Australia - Western Australia to be exact.

In 1997 Linda Watson took stock of her life and decided to give up her lucrative escort business in Perth. As a former prostitute, she was determined to help other women 'get off the game' and escape the cycle of exploitation, drugs and abuse which she'd known first hand over a 20 year career in the sex industry.

She found an unexpected friend and benefactor in Perth's Catholic Archbishop Barry Hickey, and so Linda's "House of Hope" was born.

I tend to think that former workers in that 'industry' make by far the most effective evangelists to it. Anyone else would find it difficult to escape the accusation that they are doing it for kicks.
