Dan & Janice are missionaries to Zambia. About Their Family We are a family of seven that has heeded the Lord’s call to bring the gospel to the country of Zambia, Africa. This is truly humbling, and we are excited that the Lord has clearly shown us how he wants to use our family to fulfill The Great Commission. We have recently finished deputation and will be living in Zambia as of March 2013. Thrilled with everything that the Lord has showed us thus far, we are expectantly looking forward to see His mighty hand continuing to work in our lives. Our calling is not to do anything of or for ourselves, but to daily strive to bring honor and glory to the King of kings, the One we serve, our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. About Their Mission & Vision Our mission is to evangelize the lost with the Gospel of Jesus Christ. Matthew 28:19-20 Preach and teach the Word of God. Romans 1:16 Train men to pastor New Testament churches. II Timothy 2:2 Disciple men and women in sound doctrine through the Holy Scriptures. Titus 1:9 Our long term-goal is to establish Bible Institutes for those who desire to have a greater knowledge of the Word of God and to better equip them for the ministry that God has called them to. II Timothy 2:15 The battle lines have been drawn for the souls of men. In a military war, there are places of rest and refreshment behind enemy lines. A place carved out where those fighting the war can regroup, train, and be encouraged that the fight is worth the sacrifice. Our vision is for Zambia to be that place on the continent of Africa. In Zambia, there is political stability, an English-speaking government, and open doors to westerners. Perhaps most notably is the central positioning of the country and its shape, almost as if it is the womb of Africa. Here we can reach the young and raise up a people that will be called to soldier in the ultimate battle: that for the souls of men. Our desire is to reach this and the next generation of Zambians with the gospel of Jesus Christ. We want to help them mature into true and passionate followers of God by training them in the ways of the Bible. Through discipleship, leadership training courses, and Bible studies we will be able to teach Biblically what it means to live a sanctified life so they can be used by God to reach others for His kingdom and fulfill the Great Commission.
