I have met a lot of faithful missionaries in my life and line of work. Jerry & Jana Lackey founders and directors of Love Botswana, are head and shoulders above most. They have established a world-class ministry that emerged from the ashes of risk, dedication and a fire that nearly destroyed it all. I have personally visited their work, met with their staff and would highly encourage anyone to go, and taste and see what is happening in Maun Botswana, by the hands, hearts and faith of LBOM and it's leadership.
I have known the Lackeys for more than 20 years. Jerry and Jana lead LBOM with integrity and wisdom, humility and confidence. They have balanced ministering the Truth found in the Word of God and practically meeting felt needs of the nation. It is an honor to know them and to serve in this nation together.
LBOM is an amazing ministry that we have been connected with for over 20 years! We have visited the ministry many times and taken teams of people over to Botswana to volunteer and be blessed by this ministry. It has been a privilege to be a part of this ministry and families lives.
I led a team from Colorado on a short term trip to work with Love Botswana. Our role was two fold; Complete a construction project on their campus, and assist with some of their outreach programs. I was very impressed with the impact Love Botswana is having. It is clear that they are not only reaching out to touch the economic, social, and felt needs of the nation, but they are establishing a culture of change as they are raising up a generation of future leaders. We had a great experience.
I had the privilege of being a part of the internship program at Love Botswana in 2010. This was one of the most memorable times of my life. The vision of Love Botswana is amazing and sets no limits on what God can do. I learned so much about the culture and people of Botswana and loved every minute of it. I was able to visit this past summer and it was crazy to see the expansion of the many projects and ministries there. Cannot wait to go back!
I was a part of Love Botswana's 3 month internship program in 2011. Then I was able to return the summer of 2013. My experience there was absolutely amazing. The relationships that I built at Love Botswana probably impacted me the most, and I still keep up with many of them today. Jerry and Jana Lackey bring great leadership to this organization, and I was honored to be able to serve under them.
I have been volunteering with this organization for 2 or 3 years, and I have learnt so much they taught me the basics of what being a christian and the practical side of christianity and they helped me with my education. I look forward to working with them soon
We have visited Love Botswana Outreach Mission with our extended family in 2008. We were very impressed with the ministry and vision of the organization. It is well run by a group of dedicated and hard working staff called to serve God in diverse ways. They have made a difference in the lives of many people in Maun, especially the youth. They have a vibrant youth program and an exceptional international school. They are always creating new programs and finding new ways to serve their community. They are truly trying to impact lives and raise the next generation of Christian leaders in Botswana.
We personally have adopted an amazing young boy and help to keep him in school. Love Botswana does a good job communicating with us and working with his family to improve his life by providing opportunities and not just handouts. I feel our donations are used wisely and carefully to benefit the child and his family. I would highly recommend their Sponsor A Child Program. It is personally rewarding and uplifting to watch faith in motion through the growth and development of a child in need.
I volunteered my time this year with Love Botswana, and it was an honor to serve along with them. They are making such an impact in the community and in peoples lives. They truly are wonderful people, Jana, Jerry and their staff. =)
I was invited to come and serve as a missions pastor for two years. It was both an honor and privilege to serve along side Pastors Jerry and Jana Lackey. The entire Love Botswana Outreach Mission team was a joy to work with. They are making a huge impact to expand God's kingdom and serving the people of Botswana. LBOM operates with integrity and true accountability. This is a safe place to make an investment of your time, talent, touch, and treasure.
