Introducing Jacob and Deena. In 1995, Jacob was making his way home via train from an out of town engagement, when he noticed huddled below newspapers, three small children. His heart ached for those three young ones and in his heart's prayer, he asked, "Lord, who's going to take care of these destitute ones?" And the Lord answered, "You are." when he returned the following day, only two children remained, but it was at this turning point that he began what is now a home for nearly 30 children. He began by bringing them into his own home along with his wife, Deena, and his three children.
