Dan, Rachael, Moriah, Hanna, Chloe Brown
We are the Browns. God has called us to take the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the needy people on the island of Madagascar.
Dan was raised in a Christian home where he had the privilege of learning the truth of the Bible at a young age. When he was fifteen years old, he understood for the first time the simplicity of the Gospel and put his faith and trust in Jesus Christ alone for salvation. During his sophomore year in college, God began burdening his heart for missions. After struggling for two weeks with the idea, he surrendered to the Lord with a burden to serve in Africa.
Rachael grew up in a Christian home where she heard the Gospel many times. She made a profession of faith when she was five, but did not fully understand the Gospel. It was not until she was thirteen that she realized she was a sinner and accepted Christ as her Savior. At the age of sixteen, she surrendered her life to missions.
In 2013, God began burdening our hearts for Madagascar, an island with a population of nearly 23 million people and few Baptist missionaries. In May of 2014, we took a survey trip where we saw the many needs of the people. Our heart’s desire is to return to Madagascar and to establish local New Testament churches.
