We are a non-profit organization that fights trafficking world-wide through Awareness, Training, and Prevention Methods. Our goal is to spread the gospel of Jesus Christ in every aspect. We believe every human being should be set free, physically & spiritually. 

Preventing

Awareness is essential to end human trafficking. 

Knowledge is powerful! Our Field Representatives and staff work hard to bring awareness to you and families in at risk villages in Chiang Rai, Thailand. We also express the love Jesus Christ has for us and how he can impact your life.

Training is the heartbeat of our ministry. 

Brave men are risking their lives everyday to rescue children from slavery. We partner with rescue organizations world-wide and are responsible for supplying the training and skills necessary for rescuers to free children safely and effectively out of trafficking. Our program is designed to train rescuers, security staff, house parents and survivors of trafficking. 

Healing the brokenhearted.

Hands of Hope Foundation was founded by our ministry to foster children in Chiang Rai, Thailand who are at risk for trafficking. Hands of Hope also uses resources to supply needs to villagers in hopes of reducing the risk of children being sold due to severe poverty.

Jon and Chrissy Espy - Founders

Jon and Chrissy Espy have a passion for not only teaching hand to hand combat in the war against sex trafficking, but first and foremost for people to walk hand in hand with Christ. The Espys met and married in the military and have since served as missionaries in Thailand as a pastor and English teacher. Jon is a black belt in Taiho-Jitsu, a Police Subject Control Instructor, and has studied Aikido since 2001, as well as other martial arts. Chrissy is both a R.A.D instructor and a Subject Control Systems instructor. Jon currently has a purple belt in Brazilian Ju-Jitsu.

SWAT trains in self defense and other tactical areas and certifies through Subject Control Systems, and our main objective is to see Jesus made known in all the world. It is our desire to go to the ends of the earth to help free the captives.

"For the Lord has commanded us, saying, ‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.’” Acts 13:47
