I am currently studying the Thai language in preparation for the Thai Grade 6 equivalency exam. I am also involved in red-light district ministry to reach out to women in the bars and brothels. I am looking forward to greater involvement in our Child Advocacy Centre programming to prevent sexual exploitation and promote community development.

I work with the Thai.
“Declare his glory among the nations, his marvelous deeds among all peoples.” (1 Chronicles 16:24)
My life has been an ongoing testimony to God’s grace and faithfulness. Jesus revealed his loving power to me when I was only four, and that alongside a supportive family and strong church community allowed me to grow up knowing I have a heavenly Father who cares for me. Through youth missions trips, an internship in Ecuador, taking Intercultural Studies at Ambrose University, an internship in Thailand, and finally God’s clear prompting, I realized that I was being prepared for and calling into long-term missions. On top of the privilege of joining with what God is doing in the world, I’m so glad that I get to do so in Thailand and among those vulnerable to and exploited in the sex industry. I joined the C&MA team in Phuket that is shining the love of Christ into the darkness, and it’s so exciting to follow God’s lead in this new work.
If you are interested in following the story of what God is doing in Phuket and praying alongside us, email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to receive my monthly prayer email updates.
Pray for the vulnerable and exploited women and children in Phuket, that they would encounter the love and freedom of Christ.
Pray for our team and the emerging Thai church, for us to follow after God in unity, wisdom, faithfulness, and boldness.
