Jennifer and Raz, along with their three children, aim to help the most needy children in Romania – abandoned children and Roma (Gypsy) children. They are working hard to rescue abandoned babies from living in institutions and placing them in loving forever families. Until this special family is found, the Iacob family takes the infants into their own home, ensuring that they are well cared for and not suffering from the effects of neglect they would experience in the state institutions. They are also working in a downtown slum that is home to a number of families that are squatting in abandoned storefronts and garages. The Iacobs also provide mentoring and counselling to at-risk mothers, school readiness programs, early education for at-risk children, medical and humanitarian aid, abuse and human trafficking prevention programs.
They are a Canadian/Romanian couple ministering in Bucharest, Romania. Jennifer has been there since January 2000, and Raz was born and raised there. Married in March 2010, they have two boys, Jason and Asher, and a daughter Chloe
