Being a tourist town, Phuket has a laid back atmosphere. This is not a megacity; however, beyond the bustle, there is an incredible desire for many visitors to find that “thrill” that can finally satisfy a longing in their lives; be that trying to find that perfect beach to run away from life’s problems to finding meaning and acceptance in the red light district. Phuket truly is a dream location, but the reality for many doesn’t always match up.
The purpose of the work in Phuket is to foster an opportunity for God to be glorified through education, exposure and experience, transformed worldview, and a nurtured heart for missions. The context of Thailand requires empathy, passion, and knowledge, and there is no better way to embody these traits than to join the people who are fighting to break the chains of oppression on a daily basis. We want you to see first hand how God is working in Thailand, and to be encouraged to take the next step in His plans for you.

Interns and Teams Director
Paul is passionate about ending exploitation in Thailand and proclaiming freedom in Jesus Christ. He is excited to be the hands and feet of Jesus in this ministry that helps set the captives free! Paul serves as the communications and teams for For Freedom International.
Paul and his wife moved to Thailand in 2016 to undertake “Gospel-Centered justice and compassion work amongst women in the sex trade.” Together with other local workers, they had been tasked with starting a charitable foundation in Thailand and establishing a vocational training salon for sexually exploited women getting out of prostitution.
Over the past years, Paul has been hosting teams and interns in Phuket, Thailand taking on a mentor and director role at the same time giving oversight to day-to-day operations. Since the launch of Justice Semester in 2018, he has been instrumental in piloting this new gap semester program!
