Jana worked for three years in primitive areas of Asia, partnering with Saving Grace missionaries, to spread the good news of Jesus Christ to the unreached villages of the Himalayan foothills. It was there in those far away mountains that Jana was blessed to be part of helping some of the very first villagers of that language come to know Jesus as their personal Savior! Upon returning to the village, the Christian teenage girls ran to her throwing their arms around her, begging to hear more about Jesus! Thanks to God’s great love and mercy more and more of these villagers, and now even villagers in surrounding areas, are also hungry to hear about Jesus. After receiving Him as their Savior, they have taken a huge turn-around in their lives and are willing to live for Jesus, in spite of great pressure to live a strict life of worshiping many idols and animals.
Jana has a fervent desire to see more and more South Asians have the opportunity to hear the Gospel and receive it, and to go on to serve Him wholeheartedly. She works with Saving Grace World Missions as part of a support team for their ministries and projects in Asia. She is eagerly excited to see the ministries grow, as more and more house churches are planted.
Jana is a wife and mother of three children. She and her husband, Paul, and daughters, Sari, Kaylee, and Rose live in Indiana.
