Jack and Jana Barr are missionaries in Bangkok, Thailand. For the past nine years they have served God by teaching at the International Community School in Bangkok, Thailand. Three years ago, Jack and Jana did not know God would use their daughter Marley, to forever alter their life plan. Marley was born with Down syndrome and that event sent Jack crashing into a sea of depression. “I could not overcome the question of, Why us God”? Since that day, Jack and Jana have rerouted their plan to align with God’s plan. They started, "If They Had A Voice", http://iftheyhadavoice.org an awareness campaign that focuses on Down syndrome abortions. Their story has been featured on CNN, CNN Mexico, Life Action News, and The Insight Channel. Jack has now wrote his first book, Failing at Fatherhood, which has been endorsed by Bob Russell, S.A. Bodeen, and Woodroll Kroll. Jack, Jana, and Marley had a simple plan for their future, but God has forced them to trust in HIS plan.
