Greetings from the Big Apple. My name is Jonathan but I go by Jon because when i was growing up, my classmates could never pronounce Jonathan. I’m a Chinese Canadian New Yorker who has been blessed with the opportunity to live and work in one of the coolest cities in the world. I currently work at a startup as a construction manager but have had various lives as an amateur cook, musician and architect.
I’ve always believed that we need to be generous and share what God has blessed us with, whether it’s time or talents. When I was younger, I had the opportunity to serve God in a global context on two separate short term missions trips both serving youth: the first to Thailand to teach English and the second to Guatemala on a music tour with a Christian music group.
More recently, I was invited to participate in a trip to serve at iKhethelo Children’s Village during their school holidays, and I’m thrilled to once again have the opportunity to use my skills and experiences in this way. Our team will be taking the trip through LoVE USA, a US-based non-profit that has been supporting iKhethelo Children’s Village for many years. We are fundraising as a team, and each of us will be raising $2700 to cover flights, meals, transportation, etc. The rest goes toward the various projects we'll be doing while we're over there, as well as donations for iKhethelo.
Thanks you for your support. Anything you would like to offer whether it be prayer or financial is greatly appreciated!
Trip Dates: June 22 - July 1
