I'm so excited to share that we are ramping up for our 5th Annual red-light district event in Thailand, this Feburary 2018.
"Real Men Buy Flowers, Not Girls"
We had a camera crew from the World Race follow us around last year. Check out the video below to see how God was moving through your support and prayers:
This year we will have "For Freedom International" (FFI) leading the charge in Southern Thailand. They are a local boots on the ground Missions organization that is having some great headway in the fight against injustice. They are in partnership with the Royal Thai Police, the Thai Internet Crimes Against Children, the FBI, and the U.S. Homeland Security. FFI runs the Child Advocacy Center Phuket, a safe and child-friendly place where young victims of trafficking and sexual exploitation are able to speak to a trained forensic interviewer about the trauma that the children have experienced or witnessed.
FFI recognizes the importance of building trust and deepening relationships with the women who work in the red-light district of Phuket, something that in Thai culture usually requires a lot of time. This is especially true with Thai women working in the sex trade, who often have a significant amount of past trauma that makes it difficult for them to trust anyone. For this reason, the FFI outreach team is committed to developing relationships with individual women in order to become trusted people in their lives. They run a hair-salon outreach, where they offer free hair and nails for women getting ready for work as a blessing. Through this outreach they are able to connect and deepen thier relationship, while offering other options of vocational training like ESL.
I am super stoked to announce our 1st inaugural launch of "Real Men Buy Flowers, Not Girls" with Tamar Center this Feburary as well!
Tamar Center seeks to provide hope in a city full of red-light districts. (About 10x larger of a red-light district than we have worked with in the past). They provide healing through love, biblical principles and by providing education as well as job opportunities for girls leaving the bars. They currently have two centers in Pattaya as well as two newly opened centers in the north east of Thailand.
With your support we are able to rescue young girls for a night, and treat them to an evening of peace and rest. How cool is that!!! On a night where they cringe about having some old creepy foreigner illicit them for sex... we get to step in and throw them a party where they don't have to deal with all of the drama and expereince a genuine unconditional love!
As we continue to expand our Valentine's Day event, we need your partnership in prayer ever more! A big THANK YOU to all of you who have partnered with us in the past. We are calling on you once again to rise up in the fight against Sex-tourism!
learn to do good;
bring justice to the fatherless,
plead the widow's cause.
