Every Life Matters Center
The mission of the Every Life Matters (ELM) Center is to glorify God by educating Thai society on the sanctity of human life.
We aim to train and equip Thai churches to proclaim the gospel and teach fetal development curriculum in local schools and one-on-one. We strive to create a loving community to serve and care for women with unexpected pregnancies.
A missionary family through the International Mission Board (IMB) followed God’s call to move to Thailand four years ago. They knew God placed them in this country for a reason and trusted in His plan. They prayed for guidance and shortly after, they were blessed with a ministry.
The ELM Center is partnering with Arizona Baptist Children’s Services & Family Ministries (ABCS) to provide hope and care to pregnant women and families in Thailand. Please join us in praying for the center as it is in its initial phases, as well as the people God will reach. We have faith that God will use the ELM staff to minister to these women and bring restoration to their lives.
What We've Done
Last summer, we had a team from Mississippi and Florida participate in outreach in the red-light district. We also had a group of five young women administer surveys in the city that will help us better understand our future clients. We continue to go on prayer walks through downtown, praying for the people we hope to reach.
In 2020, we plan to teach "Sanctity of Life" curriculum in Thai churches, recruit passionate volunteers and gain approval to teach in schools. In 2021, we hope to complete requirements to form a legal foundation, leading to opening a physical office in 2022.

The ELM Center partners with ABCS, however, since it is a separate ministry in Thailand, it does not qualify for the Arizona Qualifying Foster Care Charitable Tax Credit.
