Roy and Bonita Thompson

Roy and Bonita’s ministry focus is Southeast Asia. Bonita, a former educator in the U.S. for 35 years, founded the Home of New Beginnings in Bangkok and another in Pattaya. They welcome young girls and women who have been involved in sex tourism and trafficking and provide them with physical, emotional, spiritual, and educational support to get them out of sex slavery. The Home of New Beginnings creates a nurturing, family-like environment to help women heal, grow, and find hope for their futures. Their basic needs are provided for, and they are encouraged to grow in vulnerability, humility, forgiveness, and spiritual transformation. Women are also taught life skills, computer skills, vocational training, and high school and university education.
