Jacky Kroeske, born in Puerto Rico, gave her heart to Jesus at the age of 12.
Jacky grew up with her 2 brothers in a Baptist congregation in Florida. From an early age, she had a desire to serve Jesus. She told her high school classmates about Jesus and was able to witness to her friends.
At age 16, she was powerfully touched by God and heard the call of God for her life. Deep down, she already knew that her calling was abroad.

Bible School
At the age of nineteen, she began Bible school at River in Tampa, Florida. During her time in Bible school, the Lord broke her heart for the lost and for the nations. After graduating with a Bachelor of the Arts in theology, she was hired as a full-time staff at The River at Tampa Bay Church & Revival Ministries International.

During her time in America, she met her husband, Ben Kroeske.
