But now Mayan Eco Homestead is having a powerful impact in a place rated as the fourth highest chronically malnourished country in the world.

In this interview, Greg shares his story with Marianne. Like so many of us, the Jensens had begun to find modern life unfulfilling. But taking a risk by moving so far away sparked new passions and a yearning to help their new neighbors.

Learn how they found the life they were looking for, and in so doing, began helping others to lead healthier, more self-sufficient and empowered lives.

    great interview Greg! My daughter and I visited Mayan Eco Homestead last summer as volunteers. It was a fabulous experience and I would recommend it to anyone that is interested in becoming involved and learning how others are making a difference with the problem of malnutrition.

      Thank you Liana. After the interview with Greg, I want to go myself. It sounds like a great vacation made even better by being able to help a great cause.
