"In 2007 I became aware of the horrendous atrocity against humanity called human trafficking. I was shocked to learn that child sex trafficking even existed and was extremely unsettled. During a simple conversation with my sister in law about the horrors of child sex trafficking she told me that the USA Director of Zoe Children’s Home, Betsy Meenk was speaking that very next Sunday at her church right after their service. I went, met Betsy and learned about this amazing organization. I have traveled to the ZOE home in Chiang Mai, Thailand, three times and have been able to not only help but to observe and experience the awesome work they are doing there to rescue and restore these children to wholeness."
"We support ZOE and iEmpathize because we believe human trafficking is one of the biggest travesties in society today. It is not only the largest form of slavery in history, but it currently is the largest industry in the world passing up the porn industry. There are several ministries and NGO’s making a difference to eradicate this huge problem. But we have been involved with both enough to witness firsthand what great work they are doing. While iEmpathize focuses on the educational side of this issue Zoe has a very successful orphanage and school in Thailand as well as a new safe house in LA. We have visited their Thailand operations in Chang Mai several times and were touched and blown away."
