Allison and Paul's Mission

We at Refuge are excited to be supporting Allison and Paul on their mission to spread the gospel and bring an end to human trafficking in Thailand. Here is a quote from their website about what they are doing:

"We want to love God, love people and end slavery.

In 2012, the UN office announced that 2.4 million people across the globe are victims of human trafficking at any one time, and 80 percent of them are being exploited as sexual slaves. $32 billion is being earned every year by criminals running human trafficking networks.

Our motivation for ending human trafficking comes from the Bible’s instructions to “proclaim good news to the poor…bind up the broken hearted… and to proclaim freedom for the captives (Isaiah 61:2).”

We plan to do this by working with Phuket church planters who want to develop disciples and start a ministry in the red light district.  Starting a hair salon will employ and train women with the necessary skills to help get them out of the sex trafficking industry.  

We want to share about the true Freedom we have in Christ, not because we deserve it or earned it, but because Jesus loves us. Women and men getting out of prostitution have a very skewed view of what love is and can only be healed by God’s perfect love.  It’s this truth that motivates us to end human trafficking."
