All author royalties from the sale of Jacob: Journaling the Journey will be donated to the International Mission Board of the Southern Baptist Convention to evangelize, translate Bibles and other evangelism materials , and provide humanitarian aid as needed to an Unreached People Group (UPG).
The UPG these funds will support is a Levantine Bedouin group who live in roughly the same geographic location in which the story of Jacob took place.
