I wanted to share with you about an upcoming Orphan Justice Center ministry trip that my sister in law Renee, will be taking with her daughters, Sophia (14) and Michaela (12) on November 4th; and give you an opportunity to pour into a ministry that is changing lives around the world.
As you many of you know, John’s brother Derek and his wife Renee founded the Orphan Justice Center 5 years ago. Before Derek went to be with Jesus, he began spending time in Thailand, and dreamed and prayed about one day sending a team out there. It was Derek’s desire to see teams who would learn the language, work alongside the pastors, and plant a safe house for children who would be rescued out of the sex slave industry.
Here is what Renee, her girls and the team there will be doing on this trip:
-Dedicating the restoration home for children, “Derek’s House.”
-Visiting the Red Light district in Bangkok.
-Praying and leading worship at another prayer room in an area we are unable to disclose.
-Encouraging and praying for the local staff.
-Witnessing and leading worship in 2 local churches
HOW CAN YOU HELP?
The total cost of this trip, which includes airfare, housing, food and travel expenses will be $2,500 per person-a total of $7500 for Renee and the girls. Sophia has already raised $1,600, which leaves $5,900 left to be raised.
I’m asking that you consider financially supporting Renee and the girls in this work that Derek began in Thailand.
And more than anything, I am asking for your prayers to surround the team on this trip. There is so much warfare in this area of the world and they will really need strong prayer support.
