Jan’s experiences with serving and being blessed by the amazing missionaries and volunteers that attend M2M make her consider His Secret Place: A Ministry to Missionaries one of the most beautiful ministries with which she is involved.
Jan Adams has been chairperson and secretary of the HSP Board since its inception in 2011. She is also an elder at her local church and has often served as a member of its board. Since retiring from teaching Junior High in 2006, much of her time is filled with visiting grandchildren, entertaining, and traveling with her husband, Ki, to musical events in many different countries.
Most recently, Jan has become board chair of New Dimensions Child Care, a not-for-profit care centre that benefits children in the surrounding neighborhood.
While at M2M, Jan has three main goals. The first is to serve the best meals possible for the least amount of money in order to keep costs down for the volunteers. Second, to support the missionaries in whatever way possible. Third, to pray, to share and laugh a lot with one and all! She thoroughly enjoys being blessed by the missionaries and volunteers and considers her time at M2M to be one of the most beautiful ministries with which she is involved.
Jan feels that being grateful is one of the most important ways to live, since gratefulness is the seat of joy. One of her favorite passages is: “… giving thanks to the Father, who has qualified us to share in the inheritance of the saints in the Light. For He has rescued us and has drawn us to Himself from the dominion of darkness, and has transferred us to the kingdom of His beloved Son,in whom we have redemption and the forgiveness of our sins.” Col. 1: 12 – 14 AMP
