Greenhouse partners with Missionary Sam and Life for the Innocent (LFTI) to work to rescue and rehabilitate victims of human trafficking. Missionary Sam and LFTI are committed to seeing an end to human trafficking on the planet. It begins with a team rescuing children from a life of abuse. Next they provide shelter, food, clothing, medical attention and education as the restoration begins. Lastly, they watch the Lord renew children's lives as they receive hope in Jesus Christ and get adopted into a loving Christian family. Missionary Sam and his partners in South Asia are also very active in church planting throughout South Asia, especially in regions where few or no Christian churches exist.
At present, we have been able to help fund the construction of eight children's homes in South Asia. Our Greenhouse Network pastors have personally visited several of these homes, and has seen first-hand the powerful work being done by our partners in South Asia.
"You need to know what a great work is being accomplished in South Asia. I am so used to American pastors and ministries overstating their ministries and exaggerating their results. It’s the marketing mentality, and I get it. Our culture is inundated with advertisers. But something beautiful happens whenever I meet people that seem to under-promise and then over-deliver. That is the case with the work in Asia with Missionary Sam." - Pastor Mike Patz
"We do what we do because we don’t want even one child to be abused or trafficked. Can we rescue every one of them? God willing YES! How do we stop this deadly disease of human trafficking? The answer is the Gospel. Only the infectious grace of Jesus Christ can truly change the human heart and reorder its desires. It is our only solution, In the words of German Chancellor Adanaeur “Outside of Jesus, I see no other hope for the world”. - Missionary Sam to Greenhouse Church, Oct 2012

It only takes $1,385 to rescue a priceless child. This money provides 8 months of all the basic needs such as food, clothing, shelter, education, medical attention, counseling, and adoption into a Christian home. Along the path of recovery, we have found that a key to their healing is the acceptance and love from the other children who have emerged from that same darkness. Through this process they come into the light and arms of Jesus. It is a true blessing to see God’s Word come to life in the hands of their care givers, counselors and teachers as they pour out His love and understanding. Here’s how your contribution is used to rescue those affected by human trafficking and restore them to a life in Christ.

The 10/40 window is the phrase used to describe an area of the world with the most people groups still unreached by the gospel of Christ, such as the Shaikh, Yadava, Turks, Moroccan Arabs, Pushtun, Jat and Burmese. As its name suggests, this area extends from 10 degrees to 40 degrees North of the equator, and stretches from North Africa across to China. The 10/40 window is also home to most of the world’s population of Muslims, Hindus and Buddhists.
Greenhouse Church supports multiple missionaries and church planting movements throughout this area, though, due to persecution, their exact locations and activities are not published. We partner with Live Dead and Global Initiative to support church planting, indigenous leadership and sending missionaries into areas that have not yet heard or responded to the good news of Jesus.
