Learning and Serving in Asia-Pacific
Duane and Dawn Bakken are from Clearwater BC and, with their four amazing teenage kids, are serving with Ethnos Canada (formerly known as NTM) in Asia Pacific. They provide on-the-ground support to 12 teams of tribal church planters who are establishing churches in language groups where the Gospel was not known before. Their primary roles are: operating in-town housing for tribal medivacs, daily radio check-in with each location, helping church-planters with challenging projects in tribal locations, any anything else that teams need to keep moving forward in the essential and formidable work of firmly establishing disciples where Christ is not yet known.
