Jerry and Jana’s shared passion for Africa and unmistakable call from God led them to move to Maun, Botswana in 199. There they pioneered Love Botswana Outreach Mission, which has grown over the past 25 years into the largest non-government organization in the nation of Botswana.

With a multi-cultural staff team of over 120, and reaching over 10,000 people each month in northwest Botswana, Love Botswana Outreach Mission has made—and continues to make—a significant contribution to the development and transformation of Southern Africa.
