4000-157-Burnette, Daryl and Leah

About Us:
Daryl and Leah met while in college and were married in 2006. It was through the adoption process that God began to work in their hearts about committing their lives to full-time missionary service.
Leah graduated from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro in 2007 with a BS in Elementary Education and spent 6 years teaching fifth grade in the public-school system. Daryl graduated from Liberty University in Lynchburg, Virginia with a BS in Business Finance and a master’s degree from Liberty in Pastoral Counseling. After serving in Mozambique for 6 years and unable to return due to visa issues, they prayerfully made the decision to change fields and serve the Lord in Kampala, Uganda.

About The Ministry:
Leah is using her background in education to serve as the 5th grade teacher at Acacia International School. She is enjoying the opportunity to teach in a Christ-centered, culturally diverse school where she can openly share the gospel with the kids in her class and help raise up a new generation of Christ followers.

Daryl is using his new training in pastoral counseling to help WorldVenture establish member care services for other WorldVenture missionaries in Africa by offering counseling and training both in-person and online. He has also recently accepted the role as the Uganda field leader for the mission, in which he helps provide care, vision, and leadership for 11 other missionary families.
