Host Country: Europe
So the Word became human and made his home among us. He was full of unfailing love and faithfulness. And we have seen his glory, the glory of the Father's one and only Son. - John 1:14 (NLT)
Jan has lived in a major European community for nearly 10 years. She provides language classes as a means of ministering to her mostly immigrant community and takes every opportunity to share her faith with her friends and neighbors. She also disciples believers from several different cultural backgrounds and encourages them to reach out to their multi-cultural neighbors and friends as well.
God called me at a young age to share his love in a cross-cultural environment. I had no idea how cross-cultural that environment would be. As an immigrant ministering to other immigrants I jump multiple cultures on a daily basis. I have been ministering to women in challenging situations. Now God has been turning my attention to their children who grow up in a country with a culture and values very different from that of their parents. As they search for their identity, it has become the desire of my heart that they find that identity in Jesus. I also see the huge potiential they have to take the gospel to both their parents and their parents' countries where Jesus is not known.
