Meet My Friend Jean…

jean kingery helping joni eat cakeProverbs 25:11 says, “A word fitly spoken is like apples of gold in a setting of silver.” And that’s what Jean Kingery offers every day (pictured here helping me scarf down cake during this month’s staff birthday celebration). Jean serves as our Director of Correspondence (before coming to Joni and Friends, Jean and her family were missionaries in India for more than 20 years). She and her team read, pray over, and process hundreds of letters, emails and phone calls that pour into Joni and Friends every week. We receive mail that touches on everything from obsessive-compulsive disorder to osteogenesis-imperfecta (and everything in between)! What I love about Jean and her staff is, they earnestly seek God’s heart in prayer and dig deep for the best resources – they are constantly mindful that they are representing God and His Word with every reply. Have a question or a need? Then Jean’s your go-to person :-). Or, how about sending her a few “apples of gold” of your own today and thank her for her efforts!
