Host Country: Europe
Lord, we show our trust in you by obeying your laws; our heart's desire is to glorify your name. -Isaiah 26:8 (NLT)
Jan has lived in a major European community for over 14 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 young women who are growing 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.
