Review for Global Relief Association for Crises & Emergencies, Inc. (GRACE), Cartersville, GA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

It has been over 2 years now since I decided I wanted to go to Thailand with my church's team and hand out bibles to the Chinese tourists. Little did I know that a short time later I would be sponsoring a beautiful little girl name Khwan. Our team went to jails, old folks homes and day care centers witnessing and doing what we could do to spread the love of Jesus in addition to handing out Bibles in the evenings. It was at one of these day care centers, Grace International, that I first met Khwan. We couldn't have a conversation due to the difference in languages but we did some crafts, sang some songs and played some games. At the time I wasn't really compelled to do anything for any of these children. As Jon and Angie Sullivan, the couple responsible for starting Grace, told us about how these kids live in poverty and are always at risk of being taken into the sex trade , something told me I had to do something but I just pushed the thought aside. Someone else will do it i thought to myself!!! On the last day of our trip I had a gentleman take me to see where this sex trade took place..."Walking Street". To say I was shocked is an understatement! Young girls, standing shoulder to shoulder waiting to be picked up. It broke my heart and it was then and there that the good Lord let me know I had to do something! Between Him, Jon and Angie's Grace International and myself, Khwan was never going to be on that street!!! So now I am a sponsor to the cutest little girl in Thailand, Khwan! She is 8 years old, likes school and has many friends. I encourage everyone who reads this to consider becoming a sponser. You won't be sorry! Greg Luzier
