Khio and Jeremy Sutter began assisting the ministry of The Well in February 2004 by spending time with the girls, taking them to church, sharing the gospel, and inviting them to events away from the bars.
God has a way of surprising His workers. In December, while working with one new Christian, we were praying about what ways this ministry was going to grow, wanting to see girls leaving lives of bondage to the sex industry and come to know Christ. Then in January 2005, within the course of a couple weeks, we had 8 new students accept Christ and agree to study with The Well ministry full time.
Now, we are training these women with new lives to become leaders to spread the gospel throughout Thailand. We now have three different training centers, teaching the women work skills and making jewelry, greeting cards and bags.
Khio, mother of two sons, works with The Well as Director of Education, teaching Bible and counseling students, as well as running a bag sewing business with her students from her home. In her childhood, Khio became a Christian because of the love of sponsors and workers with World Vision and began joining missionaries and mission trips around Thailand when she was a teenager. Since then, Khio has worked in churches, Bible training centers, and other Christian ministries counseling and teaching Bible, music, and worship.
Working as a teacher at International Community School, Jeremy has been in Thailand for 3 years. A graduate of Kent State, Jeremy spent two years in Pittsburgh working as a church youth leader. He moved to Thailand to learn about a new culture, and stayed in response to the Thai’s need of the gospel and the question in Romans 10:14, “How, then, can they call on the one they have not believed in? And how can they believe in the one of whom they have not heard? And how can they hear without someone preaching to them?”
