Thai’s that Free

77 is a good number, I think. Reaching out to the outcast, perverse, rough-around-the-edges men of Pattaya, Thailand (often called the sex tourism capital of the world) was not what our partner had in mind when he and his wife, Jaidee (who works to help rescue victims of sex trafficking) settled in Thailand as missionaries more than 20 years ago.

Human Trafficking & Slavery Ministry Team in Myanmar

Shan Noodles & Other Things

You Did It…Again

You know who you are—those who joined us in the fight against human trafficking and slavery in 2017. We’re talking about those of you who sacrificed hard-earned dollars (or pounds or euros or yen…) to rescue women and children from this web of evil, and to encourage and equip those fighting it on the front lines. We’re also talking about those who prayed for us and this life-affirming ministry, whether you were in a position to give financially as you wanted to or not.
