Guatemala – July 23-30, 2022
Girls as young as seven years old are being sold for sex every night. This is absolutely unacceptable, so we are relentless in our mission to rescue, see them healed, and empower them to be free from trafficking. Cambodia’s unique economic challenges, history and geographic location make it a hub for targeting, transporting and harboring trafficking victims. Although previously known to be the child sex trafficking capitol of the world, we are now seeing effective change taking place.
For these girls to truly heal and grow, they need to feel the unconditional love of Christ. When this love is shown, survivors understand their true worth and value, and then they are able to become abolitionists themselves; raising their voices and fighting for the freedom of other girls. In addition to this, our protection programs are targeting the root of the issue by addressing the demand for purchased sex and protecting the vulnerable in the community.
Bridges For Peace
Founded in 1976, Bridges for Peace seeks to be a ministry of hope and reconciliation. Through programs both in Israel and worldwide, we are giving Christians the opportunity to actively express their biblical responsibility before God to be faithful to Israel and the Jewish community.

The Cottey Family
We are going to encourage and support the small group of believers who call the rural city of Okayama home, and open our arms to those who have not yet accepted Jesus as Lord.
We met our friends, Pastor Tom & Olive Kisaki, when we visited Japan in 2012 to help during the recovery of the Great Tsunami of 2011. Having loved and prayed for them for 8 years, we are grateful for the opportunity to say “yes” to the Lords invitation to serve alongside them in Okayama.
The church there is in need of a place to gather together regularly and we will be serving in these beginning stages. We expect our time there to be full of connecting with locals, serving kids in after school programs, building relationships with single-moms through food pantries, aiding local farmers, and holding up the hands of the weary!
From a young age, I have felt the call to the nations and foreign missions. In the fall of 2018, I had an encounter with the Lord that was full of visions of people and locations in East Asia and felt the area burned upon my heart. Since that time, the love for that area of the world, its people, and the culture, has continued to grow. I am excited to take the first steps toward this call and begin by serving the people and local pastors of Okayama, Japan.
Working hand-in-hand with Pastors Tom and Olive Kisaki, this season will be one of building the local church through connecting with the community, serving in after-school programs, building relationships with single mothers and their families through food pantries, and aiding local farmers.
To serve the poor, the destitute, the lost, and the forgotten.
