Jed, Jenny Koball and family
Jed Koball assists the Peru Joining Hands Network (Red Uniendo Manos Peru). Joining Hands, an initiative of the Presbyterian Hunger Program that addresses root causes of hunger in partnership with networks of churches and non-governmental organizations in countries with high poverty rates, lead the struggle against hunger and poverty at the local level and are joined by Presbyterian Church (U.S.A.) presbyteries and congregational partners that address the same concerns on the global level.
Jenny Koball is the Peru site coordinator for the Presbyterian Young Adult Volunteer (YAV) program, which sends people ages 19 to 30 to serve in communities of need in the United States and abroad. In addition to service, the YAV experience emphasizes living in intentional Christian community, spiritual formation and vocational discernment. Each YAV in Peru is placed with and accompanies one of the eight NGOs or churches that form the Red Uniendo Manos Peru.
Jed & Jenny were planning to make a visit to First Presbyterian Church in 2019 but were unable to leave the country due to the adoption of their son. We hope they will be able to make a visit in late 2021 or 2022.
