The Well strategy is based on John 4:39-42 where an entire community was transformed through a purposeful encounter between Jesus and a woman who had 5 husbands. The Well trains and equips women to become agents of transformation and renewal in their communities.
Reach • Teach • Send
Reach hurting women and their families.
Jesus made spending time with broken people a priority; so The Well focuses on building friendships founded on Christ-like love with girls caught in the Thai sex trade. Staff reach some of these women by seeking them in the bars and streets of Bangkok. Others come to The Well through the invitation of friends.
Teach and nurture them to be healthy,
productive agents of change.
The Well works to remove the barriers to growth by:
- Providing support for spiritual and emotional healing.
- Helping women to acquire skills that lead to a self-supporting lifestyle .
Send the reconciled young women back to their homes sharing the light of Christ.
The Well sends equipped women back to their villages. It offers start-up support and ongoing education to assist these women to be become agents of change. Former sex workers are returning to their villages as:
- School board members
- Youth mentors
