What is Your Vision?
"We seek to mentor men into a pursuit of sexual purity and greater wholeness."
The MST Project is committed to achieving the above vision through focusing on these 3 avenues:
- We are committed to engaging in ministry to men who visit red-light districts in Thailand and in pursuing follow-up meetings with these men when possible.
- We are committed to seeing men walk in freedom through our HOPE Campaign purity course in 1-on-1 mentoring and group sessions.
- We are committed to partnering with the local expatriate church in running Real Men Pursuing Purity events and conferences.
What Is Your Perspective?
Men Who Visit Red-Light Districts
Some of these men who go to red-light districts looking for sex are searching for something, anything to fill the voids of their heart. Yet, the false sense of love, value or intimacy that can be found and/or bought in a red-light district is not the answer. When the MST Project first started there were a few people who said that there was no hope for these men, that they were better left alone or ignored. But where is the compassion of God in that perspective? We do not look at these men for where they currently are but rather for where they can be with a transformed heart. How many of us grew up in a broken home, have looked for love and intimacy in all the wrong places, or have struggled with issues that are common to men; yet God has brought about redemption in our lives. The MST Project wants to reach out to these men and be an example of restoration and redemption.
It is our passion and calling to go to these men, when very few will, and demonstrate the love of God to them in an area where they least expect it, by those whom they least expect it from. Many of these men are like us, and it is our hope that they will experience the love and the hope that is found in a relationship with Him. The Father’s love is available to all, in all places and at all times. The hope we have in Him can cause a man to return to his wife and become a better husband. Can cause him to return to his children and become a better father. Can cause him to return to his community and become an example, not a statistic.
God is not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance. This includes men in red-light districts. Therefore, we choose to stand on the street corner and offer them HOPE.
Men In The Church
Men in the church are not immune to struggles related to pornography and sex. In truth, many men within the church, struggle just as much with these issues as those outside the church, but are also then crippled by shame. This area of brokenness affects the spiritual health of these men, the spiritual health of their families, and the spiritual health of the church. Sadly, this issue has been one that is too often hidden within the church. We believe that true change and true restoration must happen in the light and not hidden. In order for men to change, we must be willing to be vulnerable and open about our struggles as well as God’s work within those struggles. Only in the light of true vulnerability, can we allow God to heal and to restore. We desire to demonstrate that healing and restoration and to lead those broken and hurting men, into that light of vulnerability, repentance, and healing. The man that is changed, healed, and restored has the barriers affecting his relationship and connection with Christ broken down and can become a powerful force in his home, church, and community. In that process, we see that God does not desire that we live lives buried in shame, but desires that we experience for ourselves and share with others the HOPE that comes from His gentle touch and His tender love putting each of our broken pieces back together.
