As a gifted communicator, Al spends much of his time in Southeast Asia encouraging and developing leaders to care for “the wounded, abandoned, invisible and enslaved youth in these countries.”
Through Al’s burden for these young ones, he founded the Compassionate Hope Foundation. For over 30 years, Al has served the nations through building partnerships with trustworthy, national servant leaders in Southeast Asia. His efforts have prepared leaders for the implementation of the projects of CHF’s Southeast Asia. Their focus is not only equipping but also serving to help rescue and prevent human trafficking of children and young people.
One key factor for human trafficking in this area of Thailand and Southeast Asia is the lack of education often in tribal groups. Education either does not exist or stops at 6th grade. Al’s compassionate heart is leading the way in the building of CHF Villages of Hope, which includes a strong educational component. Al, along with the CHF team and supporting partners are believing together to change an entire region with these Villages of Hope.
Good to hear from you. All is well. Overwhelm in a good way with all God is doing and the needs surrounding the nationals we serve.
Thank you for your attentive love and support.
Below is an email update to CHF supporters this morning.

Below are two story I received today. They communicate deeply why God has called you and I to serve and support “ the least of these.”’ As you can tell by these stories their need of your help is great !
Please take time to read and prayerfully consider a summer gift now to help CHF care for these during the summer session.

ATM update from our partner in the Philippines IJM:
Update 4 victims rescued: ages 4, 8, 10, & 13, all female. The perpetrator is the mother of the 2 victims (ages 8yrs and 13 years) The mother of the 4 year old is the receiver of money. These two mom were working in greedy partnership with one another to carry out this hideous crime against their own children!

God has you and CHF there for just a time as this. God sees them, hears their cries and deeply feels their pain. You through CHF become the hands of God to receive these who are being delivery out of this dark destruction into His love. Homes of Hope offers them a new life , filled with love , care , healing and a future. Giving them all they need to rise up out of this darkness, restoring them into the wonderful purposes and plans of God’s for their life in creating them.
Persecution and deep trail!!
