Prayer Updates from Bangkok

Praises!

We praise God for a few Thai churches and individuals who have donated goods and money to reach out to women in the streets. It is a breakthrough to have Thai Christians supporting the ministry, and we are excited for these new partnerships.

Prayers!

Please pray for “Vivian,” one of our trafficked women whose grandmother died back in Africa two weeks ago and received word last week that her brother passed away. She is devastated. She is still waiting for her court case to finish, and now the countries are not allowing travel. Pray for adjustment into our program and for funding to send them home well equipped for their future.
