Danielle and I spent 4 days in the Spring of 2010 in a village in the Northeast of Thailand. This region’s name is Issan. We worked with a team from the Tamar Center that headquarters in Pattaya, Thailand. Five of the women on our team formerly worked in the bars in Pattaya, Thailand. Some worked in prostitution. In this picture, we are sharing a dinner in the home where we stayed.
Issan is the poorest region of Thailand. The girls travel to Pattaya in search of happiness and financial security; instead they find prostitution and loneliness. Far away from their families and friends many girls desperately desire love, comfort, and help to find alternate employment.
This is where the Tamar Center enters the picture. View this video to learn more about the Tamar Center and their ministry. Please use viewer discretion.
Danielle and I lived in Pattaya, Thailand for 6 months in 2007. During that time, our hearts connected with this ministry. So many around the world are without hope. I urge you to allow your heart to be touched. Then become a part of the solution.
