The STORY (LISTEN & READ BELOW)
A homeless boy rummages through garbage for crumbs and scraps.
A young girl turns to red lights and bar poles as her last option.
A generation grows up rejected and forgotten.
In Thailand alone, as many as 30,000 children live in the streets without homes or caretakers. These children, known as “Dek ray ron” in the local language, often become vulnerable to sex traffickers and hustlers who coerce them into prostitution or forced servitude.
After encountering this type of atrocity in different parts of the world, Michael Perez could not return to America and ignore what he saw. He decided to take a step of faith in 2013 and move half-way around the world to Thailand to discover what God would have him do for OUR young generation.

"WHAT'S NEXT PAPA?"
Join him in praying for the redemption of Thailand’s youth...
Support him financially as he responds to the "GO YE" in his heart...
The Mission is simple:
i have left the country for weeks at a time, for months at a time and NOW, quite possibly, forever, at-a-TIME when the WORLD so wonderfully bids me: "to COME!"
and SO again, i GO.
You might be wondering:WHERE? the streets of Thailand and beyond
WHY? Because around the world thousands of children live on the streets without mothers & fathers to protect, to feed, to educate, to simply LOVE them. My "GO" is a response to this epidemic, a response to the beat in my heart for the world, a response to live out my life as a missionary, to simply crown hearts with the GOSPEL, to discover HIS plan in order to live it well.
HOW? Thailand will be a classroom of sorts, although i have my own dreams, i have much to learn, so in order to fulfill those dreams i will be partnering with other missionary friends and ministries. My heart is for the population of streets kids that are at high risk for being trafficked. My desire, as a creative, is to use the arts to attract and inspire them, but a FATHER'S LOVE to lead them to FREEDOM.
WHY i need YOU? For a long time i have wondered what would be of me - this no wife, no kids, no house, no car, spontaneous, nomadic, single, young man. And you've probably wondered the same, well this BE it, that GREAT thing i'm attempting for GOD. Which brings me to you-you & you... i know i cannot do this on my own, and believe that it is yOUR DESIRE to see a generation of lost and forgotten youth RESCUED and CROWNED with LOVE, so it is my honor to invite YOU on this adventure: to CROWN HEARTS together.
