Behind Thailand’s beautiful beaches, booming tourism, and the country's ever-smiling faces lies a terrible secret: modern-day slavery fueled by poverty. Thailand’s red-light districts attract an ugly side of tourism.
Families go into debt in order to pay for food, rent for their homes, or even to build bigger houses. When debts are called in, the young girls are sent to Bangkok or other tourist cities in order to provide for their families. While the males go to the temple as monks in order to earn merit, it's the responsibility of the female to provide for her family.
You will have a wide range of opportunities ready for your team to jump into!
Depending upon which ministry you are paired with, this could mean teaching English and educating refugees and extending a helping hand to those in need through outreach evangelism. You will have plenty of opportunities to serve through children's ministry, helping directly with children's church, or maybe helping update child sponsorship stories.
You might minister in the red light districts and prisons by building relationships with those in need. You'll probably spend time playing sports like volleyball, there's always a pick-up game happening somewhere! You will have the chance to bring meaning to the lives of youth through organizing camps, seminars, and events and working alongside the local church, maybe leading worship or a Bible teaching. Prayer and intercession will be a crucial part of your ministry in Thailand.
Our partner in Northern Thailand also has an organic farm, so your team will most likely help work the farm and teach local farmers about sustainable farming.
