About the Site
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.
Justice Semester (J-Sem)
The purpose of Phuket Envision Justice Semester is to foster an opportunity for God to be glorified through education, exposure and experience, transformed worldview, and a nurtured heart for missions. This is not your typical gap semester. The mission field in 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.
