Abstract (Summary)

The author presents children entering the sex trade as a problem in Christian ministry for children at risk of child sex trafficking in Thailand. He created a strategy, which consisted of Remember Nhu offering to help children who were at risk of child sex trafficking. He recruited 33 village leaders as participants. He used quantitative questions to measure the number of children entering the sex trade on a yearly basis prior to Remember Nhu helping in Thai villages and the number of children entering the sex trade on a yearly basis after Remember Nhu started helping in those same villages. He interviewed 33 participants and searched for indicators of the number of children entering the sex trade before and after Remember Nhu started helping in each village. The author discovered that the median number of children entering the sex trade prior to Remember Nhu helping each village was 6.5 children per village per year. The author discovered the number of children entering the sex trade after Remember Nhu started to help each of those same villages dropped to a median of 1.5 children per village per year and offered ministry recommendations.
