Asha Sanchu

Asha Sanchu is from Nagaland, a small state in the Northeast of India. Justice issues in relation to children and women and especially those caught up in sexual exploitation have been very close to her heart even before she understood and realised the intensity and consequences of getting involved in such causes.

She will be speaking on “LIFE-when you are feeling dead inside.“ Her sermon will be influenced by her heart of justice. Ever since she was a child she has been a strong advocate for women and children caught in sexual exploitation and that has been her life’s passion and calling. After she finished her Masters degree in theology, she committed herself fully to the work of rescue, securing freedom and empowering lives of women entrapped in the web of sexual exploitation. She first served in Bangkok, then the Philippines and then returned to continue that type of ministry in Nagaland. There she has ministered as the Executive Director of Miqlac Ministry, which is under the Women’s Department of the Nagaland Baptist Church Council for the last 12 years, continuing to work for the freedom and release of sexually exploited women and children there.

Asha will be speaking at Session Two which begins at 11:00 a.m. EST.
