Jennifer spent two summers with Touch the World Ministries in Uganda, and one summer living in a village with a Ugandan family for her Moody internship. She also spent a year discipling university women in Kampala through a short-term ministry with WorldVenture. Jennifer, a member of the Moody Symphonic Band, served for a year on its leadership team. She traveled on U.S. tours and an international tour to Europe. The Davises also serve as the brass section for the worship team and co-lead the missions team at New Hope Community Church in Villa Park, Illinois.
Prayer Focus: Thank the Lord for a unity of vision for work in Uganda. Pray for wisdom as the Davises prepare for ministry in Uganda that they would choose wisely from all the possible things to take part in, serve in and learn from in their pre-field ministry.
