For many years he lived a drug addicted life. He began using drugs as a teenager which led him to drop out of school at 14, incarcerated at 15, and shot at 3 times by 16. At age 19 God radically saved him and by age 20 he was involved in children's ministry at his Church. Founder and President Dr. Jonathan Kraus is a Rutgers University graduate. He went on to earn his Master of Divinity and Doctor of Ministry at Trinity Seminary. He also earned his Ph.D in Counseling from Northwestern Seminary. ANSWERING THE CALL TO INDIA A former college professor and grade schoolteacher in USA, Jonathan left the comfort of his life to answer the call of God in 2010. Through much prayer and wise counsel, God challenged Jonathan to start this organization, Love Never Fails International. When God called Jonathan to work with the children of the slums and streets of Mumbai, he knew this was God’s purpose in his life. He counted the cost and stepped out in faith not doubting God would provide. By our founder's little step of obedience trusting in God, LNFI is serving children from coast to coast today in India meeting children's needs physically, emotionally, and spiritually. The vision of this non profit is to rescue, protect, and raise children in India to live a life of purpose, joy, and freedom.   Nonprofit Architect Podcast Links     Website: http://nonprofitarchitect.org   Community: https://www.facebook.com/groups/NonprofitArchitect    Ultimate Podcast Guide https://www.fatfreecartpro.com/ecom/gb.php?&i=1698463&cl=377219&c=cart&ejc=2&custom=card Subscribe and leave a review https://podcasts.apple.com/us/podcast/nonprofit-architect-podcast/id1481292481 Patreon https://www.patreon.com/NonprofitArchitect Watch on YOUTUBE https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCQm8fnR2sHyrmLpV2jKYajA Listen to these other great podcasts from Veterans. https://nonprofitarchitect.org/veteran-podcast-network/ Want help getting your podcast started? https://nonprofitarchitect.org/podcast-production-services/
