Lauren Drachenberg

I grew up on a farm in rural Wisconsin and came to know Jesus as my Savior and Friend at a very young age. On a two-week mission trip to Ghana during my junior year of high school, I met many individuals who had never heard the name of Jesus let alone been given the opportunity to know Him personally. Upon returning home, God made it clear that I was to go back to Africa and be His ambassador among the unreached. 

For the past four years, I have been preparing to return to Africa full-time. This training has come through studying at Moody Bible Institute, participating in AIM's short-term program with a team in rural Tanzania, and learning valuable lessons from numerous sources. All throughout these years, God has continued to direct and guide me toward serving the least reached people of Africa. 

I am thrilled to be joining a team in Northern Mozambique. We will be living and serving among the Mwani people so that they might come to know Christ. Thanks for being a part of making His name known among the Mwani!

Brent and Destiny Duncan

One of my favorite verses in scripture is actually when Jesus rebukes the disciples when they try and keep some kids from coming up to him.  Mark tells us in 10:14-15 Jesus said to them, “Let the little ones come to me, do not hinder them, for the kingdom of God belongs to such as these.”  It is so clear to me that children are right at the Heart of God.

We’re the Duncan’s; Brent, Destiny, Gracie and Elijah.  We will be serving at Rift Valley Academy (RVA) in a small town called Kijabe in Kenya.  RVA exists to educate and disciple students toward their potential in Christ thus enabling families to serve.  In short we don’t want to hinder kids coming to Jesus we want to bring them to Jesus.  We have the tremendous opportunity to serve as dorm parents to love, encourage, teach and disciple these children that come to the boarding school for nine months out of the year.  We are excited for you to be a part of what God is doing in reaching the unreached for Christ in Africa.  We invite you to “Come Walk with Us.”

Serving Together,

Brent and Destiny
