Dow and Brooke Saunders live with their children in Madison, WI, where they work in Youth With a Mission (YWAM) in several of its global initiatives and mobile training ministries, especially Biblical Education & Leadership Training (BELT) international seminars. Dow’s commitment is to training and equipping Christian missionaries, pastors, and leaders who will go on to disciple their societies through biblical training and discipleship. He does this primarily through leading teams and teaching biblical principles in international initiatives to the Congo, Tanzania, Nepal, and many other nations with limited access to biblical training, and he does this in partnership with other mission organizations, such as Wycliffe Bible Translators.
Dow is also part of YWAM’s University of the Nations international staff and is currently pursuing a Masters Degree in Christian Formation and Discipleship through the University of the Nations in order to enhance and deepen his global missions work. Brooke is a Certified Nutrition Consultant and also loves teaching people how to take care of all kinds of plants and animals. She has joined ministry teams to Congo, Tanzania, Nepal, India, and Morocco. Together, Brooke and Dow have a daughter (Frances) and two sons (Gordon and Everett).
In 2019, Dow will travel to South Africa for the University of the Nations in March and to Tanzania to teach in the Bible School for the Nations in April. Then the family will go together to South Africa in May for Dow’s graduation of his masters program. Dow will also have a BELT trip to Mexico in mid-summer. Finally, we are hoping to finish out a new bedroom in our basement to give our children more space. Please pray and consider giving to help us meet these goals!
We are blessed by your prayers and generosity.
