Following a 2013 trip to Guatemala, the Nelons joined hands with MANNA Worldwide to launch the construction of a brand-new orphanage, dramatically improving the lives of dozens of Guatemalan children. Kelly says, “It moved me to tears to watch my girls play with these precious kids who just need to know they are loved,” and Jason adds, “We are beyond thrilled at the privilege … what a true honor this is for us.” Visit MANNA Children’s Home Orphanage on Facebook to learn more about the Nelons’ Kids project.

The Nelons have also just released a new CD, Hymns: The A Cappella Sessions, produced and arranged by Lari Goss and Jason Clark. The Nelons’ flowing harmonies enliven familiar hymns including “Pass Me Not, O Gentle Savior,” “Just As I Am,” “Onward Christian Soldiers” and even the ambitious “Hallelujah Chorus.”
