'Bringing Freedom to the Captives'

   Rescue, Restore, Rehabilitate 

​           SOUTH EAST ASIA

Where It All Began

"Can plunder be taken from warriors, or captive rescued from the fierce?"  But this is what the Lord says: "Yes, captives will be taken from warriors, and plunder retrieved from the fierce; I will contend with those who contend with you, and your children I will save." (Isaiah 49:24-25, NIV)

We first arrived in Thailand in July 2005.   Between June and August of 2007 we returned to New Zealand to share our new vision to reach, rescue and restore at-risk and exploited children. 

Freedom Family Home

BAAN ITSARA family home


Baan Itsara is a Christ-centred family home in Chiang Mai, Northern Thailand, for  at-risk hill-tribe children.  These children will remain under our care until they are mature enough and able to financially support themselves.

As of January 1st, 2018, we have opened a second home (Baan Itsara 2) in rural San Sai, not far from our main location. We have a wonderful live-in-helper and five girls aged nine to fifteen living in the new (rental) house. We are blessed to be receiving funds that cover 75% of the costs of this new home already. 

​As of January 8, 2018 we are now fully registered as a home under the Haven Foundation with the Thai authorities. Praise God!
