About Jake

Jake and his wife, Honah, both grew up in missionary families and have a heart for serving the international community overseas. Born in Canada and raised in the United States, Jake's first international job was teaching English in Korea (2001).

He taught 4th grade in Mexico City, Mexico (2002-2003) and then in Montevideo, Uruguay (2003-2007).
