Victims of human trafficking.
It is these people who cry out for justice in the world.
What will be our response?
Do we turn a blind eye?
Do we become paralyzed as we allow the enormity of the problem to overwhelm us?
No. Not our generation. Not on our watch. We will take a stand for those who can not stand for themselves. We will act.
If you are ready to defend those who have no voice, if your heart cries out to bring change to those who desperately need it, then we invite you to join the Justice Tour. The Justice Tour, a collaboration between Go International and Coast to Coast Central, is a multi-year, multi-nation movement that seeks to unite believers from around the world for the cause of justice. This tour is comprised of many short term trips, that when completed will have made it’s way through six continents. The Tour began summer of 2014, in the center of the world in the nation of Ecuador, as a symbolic gesture of bringing justice to the heart of the globe. In the summer of 2015, the Justice Tour will continue in Thailand + Cambodia. Whether you join us for one of these trips or commit to join us on all six continents, we believe that your participation will make a lasting impact for justice in the world.
Justice for those who are trafficked
One of the areas of emphasis for the Thailand + Cambodia Justice Tour will be in the red light districts of Bangkok and Phnom Phen. South East Asia is one of the world’s largest destinations for sex tourism and sex trafficking many young girls and children are at risk to sexual abuse. Children are often sold into trafficking rings by the parents in order for the rest of the family to avoid starvation. Many are kidnapped from their villages and are brought to the city and forced into the life as sex worker. Our team will work directly with young girls who have been forced into the sex trade through a one-of-a-kind event, The Night of Refuge, which gives victims of trafficking a night off from their nightly routine and instead offers them hope, a renewed sense of worth, and a way out of the sex industry.
Justice for the unreached
There are people that have never heard the name Jesus. As an American this may seem a little hard to believe; our reality offers a Bible on every bookshelf and a church on every street corner. However, the reality in Thailand and Cambodia drastically different.
Living in nations where 95% of the population is Buddhist, the bustling cities and rural countrysides of Asia are filled with loving people eager to hear a message of full hope, love, and ultimately, Christ. During the trip, you and your team will travel off the map to villages and minister hope to these precious people.
Justice for the Orphans
Mother Teresa once said, “Being unwanted, unloved, uncared for, forgotten by everybody, I think that is a much greater hunger, a much greater poverty than the person who has nothing to eat.”
Imagine being born into this world, only to be abandoned by your mother and father. You have no idea why you were “unwanted” and why no one would care for you, but you know one thing: you must survive the perils of starvation, disease, and trafficking. That is the reality of a group of children that live in an orphanage in Kampong Thom, Cambodia. For this portion of the trip, you will travel outside of the bustling city of Phnom Phen and minister to these precious children, playing games, building relationships, and showing them the love they are desperately longing for.
Justice in the streets
We believe that sharing our faith shouldn’t be religious, but should be part of a natural dialogue. It’s a much different approach than the standard question of “If you were to die tonight where would you go?”. It is our aim to empower you with tools that will allow you to demonstrate the Love of God in an approachable, normal, and yes-- even cool way. We believe in shining God’s love in the darkest of places and bringing hope to those who desperately need it most. During the Tour, you will participate in a variety of creative campaigns on busy city streets of Bangkok and Phnom Phen. These campaigns seek to create a dialogue with others and nudge them closer toward a walk with Christ. (Click here to see some of our past campaigns.)
Justice as a lifestyle
Our role in the world is not merely to participate in a one time event, but rather to take up the banner of justice as part of our lifestyle. We are passionate about equipping you with the tools you need to bring justice back to your hometown. Everyday will begin with a session designed to inspire you to reach new places in your walk with God. Trust us, the sessions aren’t going to make you want to curl up and take a nap- but will get you ready to go out and do what you’ve always dreamed of doing. It’s not about hype, we are focused on empowering you to help people, and in turn, awaken a new found passion for God in your heart.
Justice can be fun
We believe that if you are going to travel the world then you need to see it too. South East Asia is filled with beautiful architecture and old world wonders — we’ll visit Angkor Wat, ride elephants as we soak in the mountain top views, and drink fresh coconut water as we float in mini canoes down Thailand’s floating market. During your down time, you will be able to visit some of the Asia’s largest markets and experience the cities of Bangkok and Phnom Phen like a local as you explore the city in a Tuk Tuk.
