Family in Chile extends beyond the boundaries of the home. It welcomes neighbors, colleagues, and people you see at church. I remember when my husband and I first arrived in Chile, we hardly knew anyone. Yet when church members Ariel and Erika came to welcome us, we immediately felt like part of their family.
A dear friend and colleague of mine understands that deep personal connections bring community together. While I am programmed to look for outcomes and always am on the move, she reminds me to savor the moments we have with others.
Jenny has lived in Chile now for more than five years. In that time, she has been a top volunteer and advocate for the Health and Wellness program here. Now, we are happy to welcome her officially to the Kingdom Workers team as our full-time Chile Wellness Circle Coordinator.
This interview explores what led Jenny to live and serve in a foreign country, her volunteer experience with Kingdom Workers, and advice for anyone considering serving in international ministry.
As coordinator of the Health and Wellness Program for Kingdom Workers, I am often asked,
"How does your program connect people with Jesus?"
The truth is that health and gospel proclamation go hand-in-hand. In this post I'll be sharing how our program in Chile connects health and identity with sharing the gospel message, and how you can do the same in your own life.
