Overseas Team Trips

Interested in making a difference overseas, but not quite sure if a long term commitment is right for you? Then check out Short Term Mission Trips. They’re short, life changing and impactful.

Destiny Rescue invites you to come catch the vision of our work in Cambodia and Thailand! Learn about the evil of child sex trafficking—and see the ways Destiny Rescue is working to restore children’s lives.

On a Team Trip, you’ll have the chance to meet and share your story with rescued girls. You’ll get to know the volunteers and staff who are fighting to end child sex trafficking. You’ll leave your mark on our rescue homes in the form of improvements and updates. You’ll visit a red light district and see the environment we’re rescuing girls from. You’ll experience major cultural sites; eat delicious Thai and Cambodian foods; and travel across both countries. This is a truly life-changing trip!

A Team Trip is more than just a two-week adventure. We want to inspire and empower you to make a difference long-term. This trip is a chance for you to gain a deep understanding of the issues surrounding child sex trafficking—and what you can do to end it! When you return home, you’ll be armed with the education and passion to continue working to end child exploitation. Your stories could even inspire your family, friends, church and coworkers to join the cause.

We spend one evening observing the confronting reality of a red light district – a section of the city lined with seedy host bars, brothels, massage parlors, saunas, and hourly hotels, which is a popular tourist destination due to the sex industry and the resulting nightlife.

Quote from Peter McCracken -
The first day we visited the Chiang Rai Orphanage, I knew deep in my heart that my life had changed. I saw firsthand the work Destiny Rescue was doing for these helpless little children; it came from a position of real love and compassion. Seeing is believing…so becoming involved on a personal level offered me insight into the needs, wants and aspirations of the Thai and hill tribe children, and it gave me great insight into myself.
