Chelsea McDougal lived in Manila, Philippines for thirteen years with her family who serve as full-time missionaries there. Because of this background, she has always had a deep love for the Filipino people. Chelsea left the Philippines in 2011 to pursue a degree in College and has been an ER nurse for the past 5 years. Throughout these years she also become invested in a ministry called Young Life which ministers to high school girls and fell in love with the brokenness she saw impacting young girls. Over the past year, Chelsea has felt the Lord pulling her to a new work for the most vulnerable of his children, specifically, young abused and exploited girls.
Because of her parent’s involvement in the child welfare system in the Philippines currently through AIM she heard countless heartbreaking stories relating the struggles of such girls. The lack of resources and areas for placement in the Philippines seemed a place the Lord was determined to change. Chelsea will be partnering with AIM to bring justice and freedom to young trafficked and abused girls. Over the next few years she will be launching a home called the 43:4 home for permanent-placement for victimized girls in Manila, Philippines.
