Our Long Term Missionaries


Serving in Kenya

 

Jason and Lisa Hovingh

The Hovinghs are veteran missionaries.  With the exception of a few years in the U.S. to attend college and begin a family, Jason has lived in Kenya since he was 3 years old. The Hovinghs are the Directors of our African Missionary Base Camp that will house training, orientation, and retreats for our missionaries and international partners. Jason also oversees a number of ongoing ministries in the Naivasha community and works with our regional partners.



Serving in Zambia


Bob and Candace Walker
(and the Walker tribe)

Serving in Kitwe, Zambia


The Walkers joined the HOB Team in 2006 to become full time directors of the Nehemiah Boy's Ranch for street boys in Kitwe, Zambia, Africa. Prior to joining HOB the Walkers worked for many years as camp directors in a variety of cultural settings. HOB is thankful for the experience and commitment that they are bringing to the overwhelming needs of orphans in Africa. The Walkers are now leading Abba's Heart Ministries for orphans and street kids in Zambia.



Karen van de Voorde

Serving in Kitwe, Zambia


Karen has been serving in the HOB Home Office as the Director of Field Operations since joining the full time missionary staff in November of 2004. In 2011 Karen joined our international mission team and will serve in Kitwe, Zambia.  Karen is a former school teacher with extensive foreign mission experience. Karen will be missed around the office but we're excited to see how God uses her operational and teaching experience as she works with Abba's Heart Ministries for orphans and street kids in Zambia.

Andrea joined the HOB Mission Team serving Zambia in Spring 2011.  Andrea was part of our summer 2010 DO Justice team and she has answered the call to full-time ministry as a Social Worker. HOB is thrilled to have Andrea join our growing team of missionaries in Zambia and excited about the professional expertise she brings to Abba's Heart Ministries for orphans and street kids in Zambia.
