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, Bible classes and evangelism.
Uci grew up at the New Hope children’s ministry and has lived there for 17 years. She is now a staff member and senior leader, and the only mom on the compound which is her main occupation for the moment.
Daniël and Uci have two children, Ethan and Ribka. Together they want to serve God and the Dayak children in this children’s ministry, and meanwhile look forward to all the good things God has prepared for them for each new day.
