Jane and her husband Carl sponsored a Bulgarian exchange student from 1993-1998. In 1997, at the request of their exchange student Jane traveled to Bulgaria to meet his family. This trip was life changing. As Jane and the young man drove across Bulgaria she saw the wheat fields and people walking with sickles harvesting the grain. The Lord spoke to her heart "the fields are white for harvest." Obeying the Lord's voice, Jane returned in 1998 to do a woman's conference attended by 1500 Romi women. Seeing the great need, Bible Schools began in 1999.
Jane rented an apartment and continued to travel to throughout Bulgaria from 1999 to 2008 establishing Bible Schools in local churches. The Bible schools continue to train nationals to take the gospel to their people. Jane is still traveling to Bulgaria and other countries teaching, training and equipping believers, even while developing e-books for Life delight publishing.
