Church group takes on human trafficking in Thailand

Some of the money donated at the showing of “Not Today” at Perham’s Comet Theatre was used to make safety improvements to the home of an ‘at risk’ child of human trafficking in Thailand. Submitted photo

What happened when a group from Northwoods Assembly went to Thailand, put on a surprise all-you-can-eat buffet on the top floor of a great hotel, and invited local prostitutes to attend?

Find out on Wednesday, March 19 at Northwoods Assembly in Perham, when group members will give a presentation on their trip and discuss how the issue of human trafficking was addressed.

A special service will begin at 6 p.m., with a free will offering meal following at 7 p.m. and, after that, a video and question-and-answer session with the team.

The public is invited to attend to learn more about the international fight against human trafficking.

In February, Northwoods brought the movie “Not Today” to the Comet Theatre in Perham, with offerings given at the movie going to people in need in Thailand: Children were treated to a day at Dream World amusement park, the home of an ‘at risk’ child of human trafficking was made safer, and a surprise banquet – complete with free food and giveaways – was held to help and encourage victims of human trafficking.
