jen2 Jen Harvey visited the Compassion Children’s home in 2009, and fell in love with them all. She came back to New Zealand with a desire to help them however she could.

Since visiting, Jen has been busy moving cities, serving at a church with her husband, dealing with the Christchurch earthquakes, and raising her two baby boys.

Despite all this, she hasn’t been able to get the Compassion children out of her head. She remembers, “I was forever changed by the hearts of the children there, so full of joy & radically generous with the little they have.

Since then she decided to combine her passions for dance and health, with her desire to serve these kids, and Zumba with Jen was born. So if you’re in Christchurch, New Zealand, and feel like dancing, check out “Jen’s Zumba Page” for more info.
