John and his wife Kalene have answered God's call to start an ambitious charity called Jesus' Economy ( www.JesusEconomy.org
). They are partnering with agencies in third world countries to create jobs through a Free Trade online store. They also set up job training, micro loans, medical clinics, water wells, and church plants. Currently their emphasis is on Bihar India, where JE has funded two water wells and two church planters. They encourage people to set up birthday fundraising campaigns which in the past have raised money for the wells, church planters, and a Doctor's salary.
John and Kalene are quite young, and support the operating expenses of the charity with their own earnings, so 100% of the donations can go to the people in need. They are my heroes for answering God's call, and having the vision to do so using the modern tools of the internet & social media, and bringing God's word to people who otherwise might not have heard. Thank you John!
