Eurasia Missions

Mission Partners in Eurasia

Memorial Park is a missional-focused church, which means we are dedicated to coming alongside other Christian missionaries and non-profits to offer our help in supporting the work and spreading the gospel of Jesus Christ. While we offer financial support, we also have missions teams that personally travel to serve with our mission partners each year. Eurasia is just one of several areas across the globe where we support mission partners. We work together with these individuals and organizations to enrich the lives of those they touch.
Freedom Firm, Greg and Mala Malstead
Freedom Firm, India is dedicated to the liberation of children enslaved in commercial sexual exploitation, their rehabilitation, and to justice against those who have profited from their misery.

Currently, there are an estimated 500,000 minor girls in forced trafficking in India. These girls need counseling and a strong Christian support network to avoid returning to prostitution. Uneducated and often considered ineligible for marriage because of their sexual exploitation, rescued girls are in deperate need of basic education, medical care, and vocational training.

Freedom Firm deploys teams of undercover investigators who identify minor victims. With assistance from Freedom Firm, the police raid the brothels and rescue the girls who are then placed in protective custody or are reunited with their families *(if their families are safe). Freedom Firm works to bring accountability to police and court proceedings as charges are brought against the criminals. Freedom Firm supports the girl as she testifies against her perpetrators. The goal is to send traffickers and brothel keepers to jail, both to pay for their crimes and to act as a deterrent to those who buy and sell children. Freedom Firm walks alongside each victim through the recovery process, providing counselling, medical care, vocational training, and support in a variety of ways, long after rescue. Contact Freedom Firm.

Ethnos360  (formerly New Tribes Mission), Dave and Fran Jordan

Dave and Fran have been working among the Prai people of northern Thailand since 1979. At that time the Prai people were a remote animistic mountain people with no written language.  Today there are groups of Prai Christians in five villages in Thailand and in a number of other villages across the border in a limited access country.  Many have left their appeasement of evil spirits and put their trust in Christ.

By the end of 2019 the Prai combined Old Testament portions and New Testament will be at the printers.  There is a Prai scripture app with both audio and print as well as audio Bible lessons which can be added to as more material is available.  Ongoing evangelism and literacy efforts are taking place in the mountain villages by Prai coworkers, Dee and Shy as well as Lawa coworkers, Lian and Mali. 

Present needs are the continued equipping and training of Prai believers, and expanded Bible curriculum. Contact New Tribes Mission.
