In 1988, Jerry and Jana Lackey packed their bags and moved from the United States to Botswana, Africa. Jerry and Jana's shared passion for Africa and an unmistakable call from God led them to pioneer a work now known as Love Botswana Outreach Mission (LBOM). In 1995, the Republic of Botswana officially sanctioned Love Botswana Outreach Mission Trust to carry out its humanitarian purposes in Africa. Since inception 30 years ago, LBOM has grown into one of the largest non-governmental organizations in the nation of Botswana. With a multi-cultural staff of over 120, the Lackeys and their committed team serve approximately 10,000 people each month in northwest Botswana. The Mission has made—and continues to make—a significant contribution to the development and transformation of Southern Africa. Jerry and Jana have 4 children, ages 12 through 26, and continue to live and serve in Maun, Botswana. They are both licensed and ordained through Lakewood Church, their home church in Houston, Texas.
