Outreach Center/Coffee shop staff

NightLight Bangkok has opened an outreach center and coffee shop in one of the red-light districts of Bangkok with the purpose of connecting with the community by providing a safe place of connection as well as good coffee. Various classes and events will be held out of this space to meet with the many needs of the area including medical clinics, English classes, job training, and more. We have hopes of turning this space into a 24 hour community center but need more staff to do so. For the coffee shop portion of the project, we currently are in need of 2-3 male staff that will help us to staff the late night/early morning shifts to be able to connect with the men that come into our shop/center as well as to be a male presence to help maintain safety. We are also in need of 2-3 female star to help the outreach activities to the women. These are part-time to full-time  positions. The ideal candidates will be able to commit at least 1 year. 

These are current needs at NightLight. You could do this on your internship should your skill set match their current needs.

Stand up all you dreamers!

Stand up, stand up
Stand up all you dreamers
– “Wake Up” All Sons and Daughters Live Album

What are your dreams?

If you had a best case scenario and no barriers or boundaries, what would you do with your life? No barriers and no boundaries.  Now, what is keeping you from accomplishing it?  Most of us have an endless list of reasons, money, timing, opportunity or fear but sometimes the only real barrier is action.

You can choose to shape the life you live
. But you have to DO something.

Why Dream?

1. Dreams cause you to step out in faith and watch God do what only He can – the miraculous.

2. Dreaming with God 

causes dissatisfactions with the natural life.  You are a supernatural being designed for supernatural living.

3. When we believe in supernatural living – that empowers our dreams 
and only causes our dreams to get better
.

4. We have gifts, talents and a destiny to fulfill our dreams.  When you dream you realize you were designed on purpose for a purpose and our gifts impossible to extinguish
.

Romans 11:29 For the gifts (donation) and the calling of God are irrevocable (without regret)

If you have a longing to make a lasting impact with your life,  I challenge you to do something about it. Dreams don’t become reality without action.  This Fall consider taking a leap into the unknown.  A wise, godly man once told me two things:

1.  As a believer when you jump into the unknown with faith, you can be sure that the foundation under you is God.

2.  Without doing something, your dreams and passions are just wishful thinking.

At ISM we have 25 opportunities that can help you make your dream become a reality.  It’s time to turn that passion into action and make those dreams your real life adventure!   www.ismsea.com

Meet Karen Harvey coming to ISM in January 2014 – Internship at NightLight

Hi my name is Karen Harvey and I’ll be serving in Thailand with NightLight beginning in January 2015, seeking to shine God’s light in the darkness and bring hope and dignity to His daughters!  I’m a 2014 graduate of Hope College in Holland, Michigan, majoring in Psychology with a minor in Ministry.  Washington State is my native land, and mountains are my favorite kind of landscape!

I grew up in the church and though there wasn’t a specific moment that I recall, I made the choice to follow Jesus around age nine.  I knew that this meant that I was loved and that God would not leave me.  Around this time, I began developing a passion for the oppressed and undignified of the world.  In high school, I went on mission trips to Mexico and Honduras that were profoundly impacting to me.  I realized my love of other cultures, serving those in need, and the ways that God can work outside of my own personal context.  I also met a wonderful missionary family doing their furlough in my hometown, which put the idea of being a missionary into my mind.  My faith grew a lot at the end of high school as I joined youth group and a small group Bible study and found Christian community for the first time.  I knew that I wanted a Christian college, and I chose to move across the country to attend Hope College- a small school with deep traditions, community, and faith.

 

I’m in my last weeks at Hope now and it has been so incredibly sweet.  I’ve learned what it means to give every part of my life to Jesus- to seek His glory in whatever it is that I’m doing.  I’m privileged to have witnessed God at work on my campus and in the lives of my friends.  I’ve learned so much about who I am in Christ and who God made me specifically to be.  I watched the sun rise over the Great Wall, adventured in Tibet, and learned more about myself than I thought possible during my semester abroad in China.  I got to live in God’s creation in Colorado and live life with the coolest teenagers I’ve ever met last summer.  I’ve been most blessed by a wide variety of friends and mentors who have taught me more about who God is and shown me love and grace when I don’t deserve it.  Even in the challenging times, God has taught me about perseverance and that He will ultimately use my struggles to reflect His glory.

 

One time of my college career that has been especially impactful is the summer between my sophomore and junior years that I spent serving at a children’s home in Kenya.  I saw God’s heartbreak for the orphaned and forgotten of the world, and how deeply He cares for His children.  I love to be His hands and feet, and He is good enough to let us do that!  After this experience, I sensed that the next phase of my journey would take me to women in sex-trafficking and that is what my experience in Thailand will be.  My journey to Thailand officially began at the Urbana conference at the end of 2012.  The speaker said something to the effect of “light isn’t needed where it’s already light- we’re called to shine light in the darkest places.”  I saw in my mind a red light shining in the darkness, and a pair of eyes, broken and without hope.  On my Urbana commitment card I committed to serving in missions and I wrote, “to bring hope and dignity to His daughters.”

This is my call for the year 2015.  I heard about NightLight through a friend, and remembered the name when I started research post-grad plans.  From there I got connected with ISM.  God opened and closed doors until I knew that Thailand was where I was going to be.  He has been so faithful, even in the smallest ways and I know that He will be with me just as He always has been.  I’m excited to join up with what He’s already doing in Thailand through NightLight!
