We are the Jones Family – Clay, Hannah, Harris, Paul, and JonOliver. We are itinerating missionaries with Mission to the World. Currently, we are building a team of ministry partners and raising support in order to move to El Salvador and begin our church planting ministry in August 2023.
How We Got Here
We’ve always had a desire to serve overseas, but substantial student loan debt and God’s perfect timing kept it from becoming a reality. In 2020, God worked in miraculous ways to bring our family to a place of financial freedom but impressed upon our hearts that His purpose was not for us to become more comfortable or chase the “American Dream.”
In February 2021, it became clear that God was calling us to leave behind our home, family, friends, and successful careers in industrial manufacturing and marketing to serve Him with Mission to the World in El Salvador. As Deuteronomy 31:8 says, “It is the Lord who goes before you,” we believe that God had been preparing the way for many years so that our family could follow His call to El Salvador.
The Jones Family Mission
We will spend our energy, time, & resources on endeavors that have an eternal impact by SHARING the love of Jesus with all people, REDEEMING the world around us, and GLORIFYING God in all things.
Why El Salvador
When we first sensed God’s call to missions, we didn’t have a specific location in mind – we just knew that if we were willing to go, God would equip us and use our specific skills for His glory. Our sending agency, Mission to the World, connected us to Rodney & Jana Davila, who are starting a brand-new church planting work in El Salvador. After much prayer and consideration, we took a vision trip in May 2022 and God affirmed our desire and calling to serve the people of El Salvador. We are excited to partner with the Davilas who have been serving with MTW in Latin America for over 30 years.
Would you join us as we seek to make the heart of Jesus lovely – whether through prayer, financial partnership, or physically coming to serve with us in the heart of San Salvador? Learn more about partnering with us.
