In 2005 Jeri's life was turned upside down after losing a 7 1/2 nephew (more like a brother), a 8 year relationship and friends. ONLY then she realized nothing worldly could give her the peace, happiness and healing needed except Christ. (John 14:27) during this time she completely submitted her life to His word and His service. Jeri's passion and desires turned to evangelism, the lost, the broken and sharing His healing with others.
Since that day Jeri has been serving teaching and sharing with children, youth, women and men. She has served in Uganda, Malawi and the USA. Her greatest desire is to share the love of Christ with the "least of these". She wants to teach love and disciple the broken. She wants to Show His love to those children who may believe they are forgotten. (Psalms 27:10)
