In August and January of each year, ZOE Thailand has the privilege of hosting our joint short-term teams. Each team arrives after months of training and planning for their 10-day short-term trip.
They spend time alongside our staff, ministry school students, and missionaries in different settings. They are given opportunities to serve and get a glimpse of what we do at ZOE.
It is a trip unlike any other they have experienced. Many of them are forever impacted and changed by their time with us.
This summer one team was so impacted and inspired that they went back home with such a fire and passion to see human trafficking stopped. They worked with our team in Los Angeles and ran the first ever ZOE Rescue Walk in Hawaii. They were one of three other satellite walks around the country all spearheaded by previous short-term team members. In Hawaii alone, there were 200 walkers and over $3,700 raised.
Gail Nitta, short-term teamer and our on-the-ground coordinator for Hawaii’s ZOE Rescue Walk says, “This mission trip opened my eyes about child trafficking. I was infected with the amazing work the long term missionaries are doing in Thailand. I believe God told me take it back to Hawaii and help spread the awareness of child trafficking. But most importantly spread His gospel to the people.”

Isn’t it amazing what listening to God and being obedient can do?
Together you helped us raise over $67,000 with funds still coming in. Thank you for partnering with us.
