Dan Cawley and his wife Stacy left the American dream – they had a good job with a good income, 2 kids, 3 cats, a house – left it all behind to go to Yaunde, Cameroon as missionaries. Dan is the IT director and Stacey is a library media specialist and English teacher for the Rain Forest International School, which is a school setup by Wycliffe to cover the education needs for missionary kids living in the region. I think it’s a really interesting problem that they’ve stepped into – missionaries get called, and we often forget that they have kids and have all the usual problems of parenting and figuring out how to make sure their kids are well-educated while living in parts of the world that don’t speak their language or aren’t well-developed in terms of their education programs. So Dan and Stacy are part of Wycliffe’s solution to that problem, supporting and extending the longevity of missionary families, and also training up future government and business leaders in Cameroon.
