Invest in Futures by Ending Human Trafficking
The One Great Hour of Sharing promotional materials for 2020 features the ministry of the New Life Center Foundation in Thailand. The Royal Thai Government has worked to improve education in rural areas, and later began implementing countrywide anti-trafficking, sexual abuse and forced labor campaigns and working alongside secular and faith-based initiatives.
American Baptists have invested in the lives of young girls in northern Thailand for over 30 years! American Baptist International Ministries’ missionaries Dr. and Mrs. Paul and Elaine Lewis founded the New Life Center (NLC) in 1987, and Rev. Lauran Bethell, Miss Karen Smith, Miss Kit Ripley, and Miss Jeni Pedzinski have provided leadership there alongside NLC’s tribal staff.
There has been much support given over this past year to help with damage here and abroad for floods, hurricanes, tornados, mud slides, and much more! Our great state of Michigan has been helped through this offering. Food and Shelter Grants have been received by First Baptist Church of Owosso and Friendship House in Hamtramck.
