JCA 2018 Workshop Speaker

Lisa Samuelsen


Lisa and her family have been on the mission field in Asia for 16 years. In 2002, Lisa was called to prayer walk the red light districts of her city. From those small beginnings she founded Eden Ministry. Since that time she has reached out to thousands of trafficked women and children.

Eden now has 5 sites in Southeast Asia. Lisa's work is unique in that it doesn't only see girls as victims of trafficking but pimps and brothel owners as well. She reaches out to ALL those oppressed by sexual exploitation and seeks to break the chains of bondage, empower woman previously sold as brides, and see transformation in the darkest of places.

Lisa is a dynamic speaker who ministers from a strong prophetic gifting which inspires women to dream bigger and take the extravagant love of God to places and people where its least expected. Lisa now lives with her family in Burma.
