#112 Dutch Man Answers the Call of God and Seeks to Help Take a Full-Scale Noah’s Ark from the Netherlands to Brazil – Herald A.M.A. Janssen

When we read and hear about the story of Noah’s Ark, we can’t help but picture a gargantuan vessel, capable of withstanding floods and able to corral a zoo’s worth of animals. Our guest, Herald A.M.A. Janssen, is the director for an organization called The Ark of Noah Foundation, and they have created a full-scale replica of biblical proportions. A native of the Netherlands, Herald leads the European division on a campaign to raise the funds they’ll need to transport the Ark all the way to Brazil.

Herald’s journey to this foundation was filled with love for the Lord, and while he’s had an excellent Christian life, it did not come without its struggles. He faced a dark time while working in asset management in Germany, when he was unfairly accused of corporate fraud and spent over ten years struggling to stay afloat financial and prove his innocence. Herald kept his faith in God throughout the whole ordeal, and his prayers were answered.

He was later called to play a part innovative organization. The Ark of Noah’s mission is to spread the gospel to the many underprivileged communities in Brazil and other countries in South America. With our assistance and support, we can help them instill hope in the lives of many deserving children and families.
