ABOUT JKC

OUR Mission and Vision:

To empower children of the jungle so that they can break the cycle of poverty and abuse and share that message of transformation with their family, community, country and world.

 

Poverty comes in many forms; it can be spiritual, moral, monetary, or physical. In fact, in a person’s life poverty almost never presents itself in one form but is entangled with another and is the result of the direst form of poverty, the poverty of not being in right relationship with the creator God.  

 

Because the jungle is a developing environment, the people of the jungle not only contend with the first four forms of poverty stated above but they also contend with another form or poverty, intellect. With limited resources and purpose to think, a person has little reason to change, but rather, they will simply do as others say or what they have seen done.

 

Taking this into consideration, the people of this region are impoverished in many forms, imagine what their children have seen, what they have been told to do, and what they will blindly follow into adulthood. Odds are the cycle will continue.

Our mission is to provide an opportunity for these children to choose to be in right relationship with God, through providing education and thus breaking the stronghold of poverty for all future generations. 

OUR BOARD OF DIRECTORS

I will guide the ministry towards the mission that has been set as our main purpose, always keeping in mind, Whom we serve, where we are going, what is our purpose, and how we are doing it. The love for Christ, shown by the JKC ministry in the Misahualli area is the main link that motivates me to look at the long run, and to join forces with a wonderful group of Christian friends that are part of the board, to discover what God has in mind for this ministry. Violeta and I love our son Roberto A., our daughter Charmai, and  our three granddaughters. Their decision  to leave everything behind,  go to the jungle in a step of faith, in obedience to what God has commanded them to do, opened a deep tenderness in our hearts that is very difficult to explain. We embrace it by the peace and love that only Jesus can give.​
