Who We Are
'Bringing Freedom to the Captives'
Rescue, Restore, Rehabilitate
SOUTH EAST ASIA
"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!
