About Me

Leon Jones

Atlanta native Leon Jones

I first traveled to Peru in the spring of 1998.

It was supposed to be just a seven day visit. That was the plan. But two things happened that changed my life. First, I fell in love with the indigenous people of the remote jungle town of Iquitos. Especially the children. Secondly, when I returned to Atlanta God ordered me to return to Peru .

To  serve Him.

Over the years I have operated a number of charitable programs: a ¬†wawawasi (free day care center for Indian children); a teenage girl’s volleyball tean to help combat teen pregnancy; bringing Bibles to small churches; a yearly Christmas party for over 200 children in the town’s poorest community; and a house for abandoned children.

Presently, I am only able to operate the house for abandoned children. If you would like to help me help these precious children—or would like to contribute to any on the below programs—please contact me at leonjonesiniquitosperu@gmail.com

You may also choose to read MY TESTIMONY, which explains how I came to shut down my successful Atlanta business and move to the remote jungle town of Iquitos, Peru.
