Loved every minute of my volunteer service! They do such a great job at letting do what your best at. This ministry is very organized and they are very grateful for your service! They have such great hearts and an amazing story of faith!
They have so much love for the communities they are helping, as well as a passion to bring positive changes to the lives of many.
We've loved this ministry since its inception. Jerry and Jana Lackey have a heart for the lovely people of Botswana. We served along side them in 1992 and learned so much. Such a wonderful couple, family, and ministry.
I had the privilege of working at Love Botswana in 2014 after schooling at Okavango International School in 2013.
LBOM is a Ministry of excellence that shapes you into a great Leader. The leadership is influenced by the power of the Holy Spirit which explains why things are run so well.
I have visited Love Botswana Missions and the Okavango International School and I found what an extraordinary place it is. The Lackeys have done marvelous work and have endured many, many hardships including fires to build and prosper over 25 years, while giving God all the glory for His mighty work in Botswana.
I had my first experience with missions at Love Botswana when I was 15--it helped shape the trajectory of my life! Later I returned several times with short term teams and was always impressed with how comprehensive their vision and ministry are, blessed by their hospitality, and humbled by their love for the Lord and the people they serve.
We had the privilege of working with Jerry and Jana for a couple years. They have a true passion for the ministry and the beautiful people of Botswana and we were blessed to be part of that passion and vision.
I spent 8 months working alongside Jerry and Jana Lackey at Love Botswana Outreach Mission, and it was a life-changing experience. The organization's desire and ability to raise up leaders in the nation of Botswana is commendable and eye-opening. There are many ways to be involved here, whether it be to work at the International School, work in an administrative position to connect the mission to donors and volunteers stateside, teach women of Maun trades that will help them sustain an income, or teach students of Botswana who want to get into ministry.
I am very thankful for the opportunity I had to work with and support this ministry; I hope others take advantage of any chance they have to partner with them.
We have known the Lackeys for many years, even before they began their outreach to Botswana.
It has been a privilege to serve on their board for several years. This is a mission with heart and integrity. Jerry and Jana are amazing, faithful workers in the Kingdom. They began with nothing and then suffered the loss of everything in a fire. But they serve a faithful God, and the ministry bounced back bigger and stronger. We have visited the Botswana mission only once, but it was one of the highlights of our life. We would gladly return again and again, but my health does not permit. I would encourage anyone considering support or involvement to follow through. And if you ever have a chance to go to Botswana, by all means GO.
Hi my name is Laurie Olson and I volunteered with my church last Oct. 2012. A team of approximately 15 people went to volunteer our services. The Men helped to build decks around some of the housing quarters and the women volunteered in the school and in the Lorado House.
The organization is absolutely phenomenal. The Lorado house takes care of children who have been abandoned and abused. The babies and toddlers are well taken care of. They are shown love and care that I know most have never seen before. They are also taken care of medically by being taken to the Dr. at least once a month I believe for wellness checkups.
Also at Love Botswana is a school for kids k-12. I was able to go in many of the grade levels and watch the teacher/ student interactions. Everyone works hard there but with smiles on their faces.
The founders of Love Botswana Jerry and Jana Lackey are honorable people who work really hard and love what they do. Their goal is to bring freedom, joy and life by strengthening individuals and communities throughout the region. They are accomplishing this through guidance in the areas of education, spiritual care , and economic building. They also work with youth teaching abstinence .
It was a blessing to volunteer with the rescue babies and kids from the school. The Lackeys have a wonderful organization at Love Botswana.
