In 1994 they started serving the Lord with the Christian relief organization 'Shelter for Life'. They worked with this organization until 2005, when the Lord called them to start a ministry in Sri Lanka. They established the mission organization 'Cherith International' with the purpose to encourage pastors serving small congregations in remote and often challenging areas, and to show the love of Jesus to those in need through word and deed.
Together with their two young sons, they moved to a remote small village in Sri Lanka in 2006. The Lord opened doors to work among less privileged people from all religious backgrounds. Cherith's programs enable pastors to build bridges to the locals, where Christians are often treated with suspicion and hostility. By reaching out to them with programs based on their real needs, doors have opened for pastors to establish their presence.
Cherith has expanded over the years and is now serving five provinces. After serving seven years in Sri Lanka, Harry & Jenny were able to entrust Cherith Ministry to the local staff and return to the USA where they continue to oversee the work.
