Least-Reached People Group

We work with the Thai.


We long for people around us to understand the grace and glory of Jesus Christ. By experiencing the transformative power of the Gospel through proclamation, discipleship, training, and the meeting of physical needs, we pray that Phuketians will know the Lord and be strongly connected in His Church.


I am grateful to have grown up attending an Alliance church and having opportunities from a young age to learn, serve, and explore God’s heart for the nations. Through a series of experiences, God called me, despite my resistance, to spend more and more time overseas, eventually revealing to my stubborn heart that he has made me to love living cross-culturally in vocational ministry. God broke my heart over the lostness of those who haven’t heard his Gospel, especially women and children trapped in human trafficking. I love teaching and serving alongside my husband, Chris, who I met and married in Phuket. Chris was called to step out in faith and leave California to serve in Thailand through For Freedom International in 2021. He has a deep desire to disciple others, prevent oppression, and support Christ’s Church. We are excited to see God work in us as a family.
