Pray for Lori and Matt Mann, Development Workers serving in Laos

October 12, 2011

Laos is one of the poorest countries in the world and a target country for pedophiles and human traffickers. Because of poverty, lack of education, and desperation, Lao street children, slum children, and children in impoverished families are targets of organized sex trafficking syndicates, both locally and internationally.  

In Laos, Lori and Matt work with street children, slum children, and girls who have been sold or are at high risk of being sold to human traffickers.  In order to help protect and restore these children, the Manns are involved in five main interventions: a day time drop-in center for street and slum children; residential care for boys who were brought off the street and for girls who were victims of human trafficking or are at high risk of being victims; a scholarship program for children who would otherwise be sent to the city to beg; and raising community awareness about issues such as child abuse, child exploitation, and human trafficking.  In Thailand, Matt is also involved in leadership development and rural community development.

  • Pray for Lori and Matt as they seek opportunities to reach out in the name of Jesus to needy children.
  • Pray for God’s direction on their lives and God’s provision for their children Leanne (19), Joshua (18) and Matthew (16)
