For those just dropping in to figure out how to donate, below is the vital info. Still further down the page are some frequently asked questions (FAQs). If you have additional questions, let us know and we’ll add them to the list.
Thank you so much for your care and support. We could not do this without you and are excited that we have the opportunity to do it with you!!
Jason and Polly (and Caleb, Micah, Josiah, and Moses)

- Jason will be helping to develop a new initiative that will use business to help projects around the world more effectively communicate the Good News and Truth. Specifically that will entail networking and getting businesses engaged with these projects to help them start businesses and create jobs…so that their communities can better understand the Good News and Our Father’s desire to care for them with good work.
- Polly will be teaching the kindergarteners on the Crossroads campus which builds on her work over the past year and a half learning how to homeschool our boys.
- “The boys” will be attending the school located on the Crossroads campus (called: TLC) and will be volunteering wherever they can help (e.g. loading 20 foot containers to be shipped to ministries around the world with customized shipments that will help set up schools, orphanages, medical clinics, etc.)
To stay plugged in and hear more please email us firstname.lastname@example.org, join our email newsletter and/or join the conversation on our Virtual Nobles facebook group.
2. So if you are working with the Global Hand team of Crossroads, where does VOCF fit in? ANSWER: Crossroads is registered as a Hong Kong non-profit and therefore we needed a US registered non-profit (501c3) for US-located partners to be able to give to us. VOCF (or Vision of Community Fellowship) fulfills this function for those giving in the US by providing tax deductible receipts. Note: For those outside the US look below for the giving option that best fits your country.
