Jim and Judy got acquainted while working among the urban poor in the Uptown neighborhood of Chicago. As part of Uptown Baptist Church, a multicultural 24×7 church, they gained valuable experience in working with a wide variety of human need.
In late July, 2004 Jim and Judy moved to Bangkok with 4 of their 5 children to begin reaching out to bar girls, which led to the founding of The Well. Jim still serves as overall Thailand Coordinator for Servantworks and is acting CEO of Narimon Thailand, while Judy directs the mentoring/case management at The Well.
The Larsons have since added a sixth child, Narudet, adopted in Thailand.
You can support Jim and Judy via Servantworks.
