Jenny first traveled with Hope Teams to Honduras in 2011. She was deeply moved by the poverty and abandoned children she witnessed. Inspired by others who have dedicated their time and resources to serving as the hands and feet of God to precious children and their caregivers, Jenny has gone with Hope Teams on six other trips to Honduras, including leading a VBS team. She began volunteering in the HTI office shortly after her first trip, and eventually helped with the administration of the Child Sponsorship Program. Jenny joined the HTI Board in Fall of 2018 and looks forward to seeing where God leads HTI next.
