After being a supporter of this nonprofit ministry for nearly 20 years I finally had the wonderful privilege of visiting them in person. Although I knew of what they were doing from reports over the years, I was overwhelmed to see all that they do and the positive impact they have made on Maun and the beautiful country of Botswana. From the home for abandoned babies to the beautiful Life Centre which they share with the entire community, God's love is being poured out and lives are being transformed. I can't say enough good about Love Botswana Outreach Mission!
Our family has been supporting Love Botswana for almost two decades. We have had the wonderful opportunity to visit and see the work first hand. It is amazing to see how much they do with the resources that come their way. God is using them to touch so many lives and meet so any needs. We have no hesitation giving here annually and more often as we are able.
I am privileged to be the Co-Founder of Love Botswana. If it wasn't for the team of amazing Batswana and international volunteer team we have had around us for all these years Love Botswana would not be where it is today. In a population of of under 2 million in the country, the ripple effects of people's lives being impacted through the many programs LBOM offers are far reaching and measurable. From babies who have been abandoned to the elderly needing shelter, adults being given the opportunity to get an education, partnerships with Government to assist where there are gaps and extensive work and services for children and teens, the work on the ground is being done on a daily basis! Despite the gap in adequate operational funds, the team keeps on pushing through to reach out and help lift the lives of people in the Northwest of Botswana.
We are so grateful to see LBOM localised and will outlive us! Amazing success has been achieved for many years without permanent buildings and through the gifts of people who believe in the vision we now have a home for the programs. Now what is needed is program/ooperational funding.
I can never begin to thank the Lord enough, for ordering my steps to work at Love Botswana Outreach Mission!! The Mission offers a great platform for both christian fundamental principles and economic growth through its various programs that benefit the community of Maun and the surrounding areas. Personally, I grew spiritually as I worked with remarkable men and women, who are passionate about what they do to the glory of the one who sent them. I salute Jerry and Jana Lackey for their dedication and steadfast love for the nation of Botswana! Their love and work remains very dear to my heart.
My wife and i ahve supported Love Botswana for several years. We have loved Jana and Jerry and their children and had them in our home. We knew about Love Botswana, but had never really seen it except on pictures and through the Lackey's words. Visiting in person exceeded all of my expections. The Staff was very professional and kind. The grounds were well taken care of. Jerry and Jana and the mission is well known in Maun and the area and well respected. The Lorato House for abandoned babies and toddlers was very well laid out, clean, and very cheerfully decorated. The babies and the toddlers seemed happy and healthy. The Staff and workers were kind and attentive to the children. We are also very impressed with Love Botswana's outreach programs to children and youth with HIV/Aids education. Botswana has almost lost a generation of people to this disease. Love Botswana's work to bring information and education about this terrible disease to a nation who has been so tragically attacked by this disease is so important and necessary. We are very proud to be associated with Love Botswana and will continue to assist them in any way possible to accomplish their mission in Botswana.
I have had a long time relationship with Jerry and Jana Lackey, they are people of vision and faith. They have a powerful faith in God and a compassionate faith in people. This faith is born out of a deep love for both. They have a unique ability to build lasting relationships with leaders on the highest levels as well as joining hearts and connecting with people of humble circumstances. They and their team have built a legacy which will continue to produce a bountiful harvest in the future. Their life investment has proven to be a valuable asset to Botswana and Africa. It is a joy to count them as friends.
Four of us from Mississippi visited Love Botswana headquarters in late August and got to see first hand all the amazing work being done through the staff and volunteers. We were excited to see the Life Center just about ready to open its doors to the community and are expecting great reports of the impact that facility is sure to have on the whole area. We also were blessed to have been in Maun on Sunday and attend services at the big white tent full of people who love God! God has drawn a wonderful group of people to be part of the church in Maun. We met with various ministry leaders and heard tremendous reports of all the Love Botswana is doing in the community and throughout the nation. The nation of Botswana is being transformed through the word of Love Botswana. We had the priviledge of staying two nights at the Royal Tree Lodge, a safari camp donated to Love Botswana to help finanically support the vision of the ministry. What an amazing place that was. I highly recommend the tree Lodge to anyone looking for a great Sarfsri experience. Service was fantastic! Rick and Robin Eaton
