Jeff and Alec were friends in graduate school in Madison. In 2010 Jeff left to work in Ciudad Juárez, Mexico, in support of a handful of struggling churches and after-school centers. Jeff has also done occasional work with an orphanage in Romania since living there in 2005-06.

Working alongside local leaders in Ciudad Juárez, Jeff coordinates activities, brings supplies, and funds scholarships to keep children from dropping out of school. In Romania, Jeff builds and maintains long-term relationships with children.

TILT is continuing Alec’s personal support of Jeff’s ministry.
