DANIEL & UCI VAN LAEKEN
Daniël, originally from Belgium, began working as a missionary in Indonesia during 2012 after being inspired by previous short term mission trips he had taken to eastern Europe. He and his wife Uci live and work at the WOI New Hope boarding home in Borneo. His main responsibility is looking after the maintenance of the buildings and teaching English and Bible classes.
Uci grew up at the New Hope children’s ministry and has lived there for 15 years. She is now a staff member and has many different responsibilities, such as accountancy and teaching maths.
Daniël and Uci have a one child, Ethan, born January 2016. Together they want to serve God in this children’s ministry and meanwhile look forward to all the good things God has for them each day.
