This will be 10-day venture in Pattaya, Thailand, the sex tourism capital of the world. This experience consists of 3 days of intense training education prior to engaging in outreach. Upon completion of in-country training, the team would begin their outreach in several of the major areas where men and women are sold for sex, children are exploited, and many endure injustice.
Our in depth training includes vital classroom time, and focuses on preparing you for what you will do after this trip ends. It is our desire to help the world see, hear, and understand the reality of this issue. This is not just a third world issue but a global phenomenon that is occurring down the street no matter where you live.
Our goal is to ignite your passion, help you obtain core foundational learning, and explore your specific calling in the fight against injustice.
Knowing fully that God is sovereign is crucial to serving on this team. We can all make more of a difference in the lives of those we seek to protect by controlling our emotions and remembering our place within this fight. We are called to utilize our God given talents in order to shed light in these dark places and to be a light through the way we carry ourselves everyday. Although you are here to be a voice, your main goal is to focus on the relationship, being present, and allowing God to first work within you.
There are different kinds of service, but the same Lord. There are different kinds of working, but in all of them and in everyone it is the same God at work.
1 Corinthians 12:5-6
The circumstances our past outreach teams have encountered are disheartening. Yet, we have watched as incredible, God chosen individuals come in and creatively shed light on these injustices.
Those who are chosen for this specialized trip will need to be spiritually mature and full of grace for the demographic we will be reaching. It is important that these individuals have experience serving and are excited to being trained in this field. Having a deep spiritual connection and relationship with Jesus is vital to doing this work. Those chosen must be active in church, life groups, and have solid friendships and relationships with those around them. They must not see themselves as saviors but rather vessels that the Lord can work through.
Due to the nature and theme of this work, we will be accepting no one younger than 21. Both men and women applying must be open with our leadership team about any issues with past addictions to pornography.
