The question before them, “How do we exemplify Christ’s love, while creating opportunities for people in at-risk communities without creating dependency on an organization?” Hope Renewed International (HRI) is dedicated to renewing HOPE by living out and proclaiming the gospel of Jesus Christ; by improving the quality of life; and by providing relief and opportunities to those who may not otherwise have them. HRI’s approach is to partner with community leaders with a focus on education and skills development, empowering the people to ultimately help themselves, creating dependability not dependency. Jason has spent the last 15 years in the global Pharmaceutical industry in various positions in the U.S. and Latin America. He has spent a significant amount of time doing mission work across Latin America and today is co-founder and President of Hope Renewed International.

After graduating high school she lived in Mexico with a missionary friend for a period time before attending Moody Bible Institute in 2006. One summer, during her time at Moody, she had the opportunity to visit Guatemala. That summer visit turned into years of serving Guatemala’s most desperate people living in the city dump, ghetto, and prisons.
