The Jacks Family
We are the Jacks Family! Please take a few minutes to look around the site! The blog and photography will give you a great look at the places and people that we've had the privilege of sharing our lives with!
We were born in the USA, but have found a new home in Laos. We believe that everyone should get a chance to hear what we've heard, see what we've seen, and experience what we've experienced. We've chosen to touch those previously unreached with the love that's reached us.
Josh and Tonya both grew up in Toledo, Ohio. We then moved to Pensacola, Florida upon graduating High School and have spent the last ten years in the area.
In 2009 our hearts were stirred with a passion to reach people in the Southeast Asian nation of Laos. We've been able to help our Lao friends through mentoring, language study, life skill training, and even financial and medical aid. We are also able to provide a safe, affirming, and encouraging place for people struggling with many of the hardships that plague the area. It's through these relationships that we are able to bring hope to people that are desperately looking for it.
We lived in Lao ancient capital of Luang Prabang from 2010 to 2012. We will return to Laos in 2014 to begin a 3-4 year term. We love the culture, the people, and our new lives there. Please join us as we love the people of Laos into His family!
Your friends in Laos,
Josh, Tonya, Noah, and Asa Jacks
