Human Trafficking Outreach in Thailand
Kenny and Catherine met in 2000 while working in camp ministry together. They married in 2002, and have three precious children, Maizie, Lucy, and Matthew. Through their adoption of Matthew, their hearts were broken, and their eyes were opened to the orphan crisis in the world. They felt a direct calling form God to serve the most vulnerable in the world, trafficked children. They are passionate about fighting child trafficking and bringing justice to these children. They believe that true healing comes from a relationship with Jesus Christ, and are thankful to be given the opportunity to be a part of the ZOE team.
