Bangkok Trip

Dear friends,
I have a unique opportunity to spend two weeks visiting a home for sex-trafficking victims in Bangkok, Thailand. The organization is called Home of New Beginnings, and they exist to provide holistic care to women leaving a life of sexual exploitation in the red light districts of Bangkok. 

As many of you know, this is an issue that I have been passionate about for many years. As I continue to learn how God might connect my vocation and life to the work of justice and restoration around the world, I desire to spend time learning from organizations like New Beginnings.

During my short time there, in addition to building relationships with the staff and girls at the home, I will: help the director of the home in preparing counseling curriculum for the girls; provide English tutoring; accompany girls from the home as they visit the red light districts where they worked to build relationships with the girls working there now; and visit the site of a second home that will open two hours outside of Bangkok.  

I humbly ask that you consider partnering with me financially in this unique opportunity to learn and serve. I cannot do this without you, and frankly would not want to do this without you. The dates of my trip will be June 15-29, and the total I need to raise is $3,000. This will cover the costs of airfare, transportation in Thailand, food, and living costs at the home.

Please also pray for me - for courage and safety, for a humble mind and heart, and for the work of justice and restoration in Thailand. 

Please feel free to contact me with questions. You may also want to check out the following links to learn more about the problem of sex trafficking in Thailand:

Thank you so much for partnering with me in this endeavor. 
Sincerely,
Jen
