1998 we took a huge step of Faith & started The Jesus Way. God has blessed us with 3 wonderful children, Desirae 15 yrs, Josiah 14 yr & Brandon 12 yrs. We work together as a family in India serving the poorest of the poor & living every day to make a difference in the lives of the people here! Although we are surrounded with great need on every side, it is so rewarding to see lives be completely transformed by the Love of God. We are thankful to be a part of extending that Love to the people around us. We are truly living our dreams!

Although each area that we are working in is very significant to us, currently we are focusing on the opportunity in front of us to rescue so many “At Risk” children through the school & orphanage! In the orphanage we have 375 children & in the residential school almost 800 children. Most of these children are orphans, homeless, street children, beggars, children rescued from child labor etc.

Unfortunately, in India:
One out of two children between 6 and 14yrs have no access to primary education, they work simply because there is no alternative.

100 million child laborers in India work in hazardous or exploitative conditions. They work for 12 - 15 hours a day and earn less than 10 cents per day. They work with explosives, metals, & poisonous gases from the age of 3 - 4 years. 15 million of these children are bonded laborers.

Poor, bonded families often "sell" their children to contractors who promise lucrative jobs in the cities & the children end up being employed in brothels, hotels & domestic work. Many run away & find a life on the streets where they are lured into what they THINK is a safe home, only to be maimed & crippled for life to be used as “beggars” or sold into sex work. There are approximately 2 million child commercial sex workers between the age of 5 & 15 years & about 3.3 million between 15 & 18 years!

71% of them are illiterate - 500,000 children are forced into this trade every year!!

By providing a Safe, Loving Home & Good strong education, we can stop letting these precious children just become tragic statistics, & instead become success stories that can bring change to their world!
