Hi, my name is Jefry Tavarez, I am the oldest of five siblings, I grew up in a dysfunctional family where my dad was an alcoholic and my mom was unstable, I had a difficult adolescence since I had to skip that chapter of my life because of many problems in the home. In 2012 I met Jesus in a youth camp called Young Life when I was 16 years old.

Being the first Christian in my family, my parents would say that I had gone crazy for always reading the Bible, something that didn’t necessarily affect me, but helped me see them with eyes of compassion since they didn’t know what they were missing. Today I have a beautiful wife and a beautiful daughter, both of whom I love very much and take care of.

I am currently working as a site leader at the Special Education site.

Jefry Tavarez serves in the Dominican Republic (Jarabacoa) at our Special Education site.
