Jesus Geeks in Action!

Jesus Geeks is a non-profit ministry that provides quality computer services for those who can’t afford it.  They also take old computers and repair & refurbish them…then they donate them to families who don’t have computers.  Sunday I had the chance to follow Jack, leader of Jesus Geeks ministry,  as he delivered 2 laptop computers to families in need.  In the case of Faris, they are Muslims, but Jesus Geeks don’t discriminate…the family needed a computer and they delivered.

The ministry is about serving Jesus with their gifts.  They have learned to be culturally sensitive with families who don’t know Jesus…but when Jack asked if he could pray for them they gladly accepted.   After praying, Jack closed the prayer by praying ” in the name of Isa Jesus.  Amen.”  Jack said Isa is the name Muslims use for Jesus.  Very cool.

Jack helping set up the laptop for another family from Ethiopia.

Kids are kids, no matter where your from.  The computer isn’t quite ready for play, but the kids don’t care…

Gabrawhout with his wife and 6 kids.  They have been in the US for less than 8 months.  While Jack was setting up the computer, I spent much of my time photographing their middle boy, on the left between his big brother and sister.  He was so much fun, wanting to pose for me whenever I wasn’t taking photos of Jack in action…Praise God for the work God is doing through Jack and the Jesus Geeks ministry.  If you want more info about the Jesus Geeks ministry, you can go HERE.
