The next years will be spent in SE Asia! Known as one of the largest human trafficking hubs in South East Asia, we will be working alongside church planters and missionaries to start the first anti-trafficking network and ministry in the region.
We are committed to living out the Bible’s instructions to “proclaim the good news to the poor…bind up the brokenhearted.. [and] to proclaim freedom for the captives” (Isaiah 61:1). What better way to do this than with the skills God has given us. I, Paul, will be looking to grow the ministry and advance the organization while A uses her expertise as a Hair Stylist to help start a vocational training salon. The training salon will be one of the ministries we start to help keep women out of prostitution by learning career skills to make it on their own outside of the sex industry. Of course, the goal is to bring these women not just freedom from human modern-day slavery, but the true freedom which is found only in Jesus Christ. With all the stains of shame and guilt that come with working in the sex industry, there is a heightened meaning to God’s analogy in Isaiah 1:18 when He says, “though your sins are like scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they are red like crimson, they shall become like wool.” We invite you to witness this transformation! Please join along side us and be a part of what God is doing in SE Asia by supporting us through prayer and finances.
What the months ahead look like for us:
We are planning to leave in the beginning of September. As we start our two-year initial commitment, we have budgeted for all of our first years legal, living, medical, housing and ministry costs. Although we still need to raise our initial set-up costs for our arrival, our biggest need at this time is monthly support. We are trusting the Lord for all of our needs to fulfill His calling on our lives.
Thank you in advance for prayerfully considering partnering with us during our time in SE Asia. As an example of transparency and putting our best foot forward in a partnership, please check out our projected annual budget below. Please let me know if you have any questions! We look forward to sharing our ministry journey with you. Check out our other pages!
