Roy and Bonita Thompson Beginnings Foundation, Bangkok, Thailand
Bonita continues to work with sexually exploited girls serving men from America, Europe, and Japan. Beginnings Foundation (formerly Home of New Beginnings) is a holistic residential ministry where the girls experience safety and hope through education, family, and the transforming work of Jesus. Currently, nine girls have graduated from University. Recently God has opened doors to expand the ministry to Pattaya, one of the top five sex tour destinations in the world, where each night, 30,000 men, women, and children are available for purchase.
Roy regularly meets with Muslim and Buddhist business and government leaders in Southeast Asia, creating a safe place to discuss spiritual issues privately and in small groups. Roy’s partner is a young Thai from a political family, a graduate of USC, where he became a follower of Jesus. He is an entrepreneur who is considering serving his country in politics.
Joy to the World and PBC’s annual Christmas fundraising dinner have both been pivotal in Roy and Bonita’s ability to furnish the new home in Pattaya, Thailand.
