Jenna first felt the Lord’s growing passion in her life to work with international ministries during her time attending college at West Texas A&M University where she completed a Dual Degree in Broadcast Journalism and Advertising Public Relations. During her time as a student Jenna had the opportunity to hear Sophorn and Stephanie share their stories and was convicted she needed to be involved with Rapha House in the fight against human trafficking and sexual exploitation.
After graduating, Jenna moved to South Asia for six months and that experience confirmed the calling God had on her life to be involved in ministry. Shortly after returning to America, Jenna moved to Joplin to begin an internship with Rapha House. During her internship, she participated in an awareness trip to Cambodia. Her desire to work with Rapha House greatly increased after this experience. In January of 2017 Jenna joined the staff of Rapha House International as the Operations Coordinator. She loves the hope that there is no end to what God can do through these people and this organization.
Jenna says, “There is nothing more fulfilling than to work every day knowing that however small the task, it is for a particular God-driven purpose and that purpose is somehow connected to these beautiful children finding healing in Him. ”
