Every summer, The U.S. State Department releases the Trafficking In Persons Report. Many of our ZOE staff anticipate the release of this report every year. We’re always curious to which angle the report will take. This years report did not disappoint. It is filled with heart wrenching stories, but also inspiring progress and victories of good people who fought the good fight and won. It’s encouraging to read about what people are doing all over the world to combat trafficking. Read more

This spring we’ve been very busy. Locally, in California, we’ve shared with over 2000 people about our fight to end Human Trafficking. We are so excited that we are now having more conversations with people who say: “Yes, I know about human trafficking. How can I help?” Read more
While ZOE is in the mountains of Thailand, we are actually fairly close to a small village near some mom and pop restaurants. It only takes about 10 minutes by car from ZOE and you can have a quick sit down meal. It isn’t very fancy, but the food is GREAT! Staff and missionaries will go out from time to time and this is a great place for fast, inexpensive, tasty food. Read more
¡Mi nombre es Cristina Amaro y yo soy una pasante de ZOE!
English translation: My name is Cristina Amaro and I am currently an intern at ZOE! I graduated from Pepperdine University with a degree in International Studies and an emphasis in Latin-American Studies (I really love tacos). I have also completed two years of Theology studies through Portland Bible College.
Here at ZOE we have two major school breaks a year. One in October and the other in March-May. This year we are running three different week long camps simultaneously for our children, pre-teens and teens. By separating them into three different age groups, we can develop more age appropriate lessons and activities. Needless to say, it is a whirlwind at ZOE! Wherever you look there are activities going on non-stop. From games on the lawn to excursions to various locations, the coordination is simply AWESOME! Between Thai staff, missionaries and our Leadership Training Program students, everyone is going all out! Read more
