Mission work brought Tim and Jenni Jarvis together in 2009. Jenni had just returned from her first short-term trip to Kenya when Tim began emailing her saying that he had felt God’s call into mission work and was waiting on His guidance. After getting married in 2011, they mutually agreed they felt led into full-time ministry in Kenya. They joined WIM in January 2012 and moved to Kenya that August. They currently work as missionaries in the Kisumu area of Kenya with their two children. Originally, their focus was on discipling and caring for the 41 children at United Hope Children’s Home. God later revealed the need to teach and disciple local pastors and to train leaders to become disciple makers in the surrounding areas; this has now become part of their ministry. Jenni, who is a nurse, also provides basic medical care for the children.
