TESTIMONIALS FROM OUR GROWING JONAH FAMILY: "I’d like to take a moment to offer a heartfelt thank you to the Jonah Team for sacrificing their time to come all the way to Ione and train our church. We are excited about integrating into the ministry of the Jonah Project and can’t wait to put into practice what we learned. The information and teaching that the group brought was interesting, relevant, and invaluable for the work ahead of us. I know we couldn’t go forward without it... I believe that when the Lord inspired his writers to pen: “bind up the broken hearted, proclaim liberty to the captives, and the opening of the prison to them who are bound,” he had the Jonah Project team in mind...we feel humbled and privileged to be able to have a part in such a powerful and needed resource." -Jim Hall Pastor - Peaceful Valley Ministries "As a pastor at a church in Garland District, and volunteer at a local homeless teen drop-in center I’ve been through Jonah Projects training on a couple of times. The information I received was eye-opening as to the atrocities that are happening in our city, but I was so grateful to the Jonah team for their time, dedication, knowledge, and passion to bring light to the community about the realities of sex-trafficking. This training has benefited me as a pastor, community servant, and a father to a teenager daughter to be more aware of the signs and situations young people can find themselves in and how to be an advocate against it." -Jason Krauss Pastor - City Church
