Paul & Sarah Brown – Thailand
Paul and Sarah have recently moved to Chiang Mai, Thailand, where they hope to develop business as mission in their local context there. Before their move, they were working with NightLight International in Bangkok, which reaches out to women and children who have been trafficked or impacted by sex trafficking. NightLight provides for these women and children an economic alternative through teaching them how to make jewellery and bake cakes. Sarah completed her training at IMC in May 2011 in preparation for service in Thailand. During her training year Sarah met Paul and they were married in June 2011. They moved to Thailand in September 2012 when Paul had completed his training at IMC. Sarah formerly ran her own cake business and uses her creative and business skills to empower women. Paul, who formerly worked in accountancy, is helping with finance and administration, as well as mentoring young men. Their home churches are New Testament Church of God, Aylesbury, and Mile End New Testament Church, London.
