Melissa and I met Jenna several years ago when she was a Freshman in college, and we have stayed in touch with her through e-mail and Facebook. We were excited when she e-mailed us to see if she could spend a few months with us here in Jimaní. Jenna completed her coursework at Eastern Nazarene College a semester early, and she had been praying about opportunities to serve in missions during the Spring semester before graduating with her class in May.
Jenna joined us here in mid-January and has been spending time loving our kids and helping out wherever she is needed. If you would like to learn more about Jenna and read about her experience serving in the Dominican Republic, she is keeping a journal here http://www.tumblr.com/blog/jscherdell.
