Profile: Grace at the Garbage Dump

Former KNOM news reporter Jesse Zink has published a book about his time as a missionary in South Africa.

Grace at the Garbage Dump explores his work and experience in a poor community. Zink helped patients struggling with HIV and AIDS, worked in microcredit programs, and tutored English students. He says cultural understanding was an enormous challenge in his work; the book is an attempt to help people take their own steps towards advancing cultural literacy.
