There are other missionaries who are associated with Kafakumba, but who have their own ministries as well. These missionaries, Ken and Debbie Vance and Bill and Cassie Bauson, assist the Enrights in their work at Kafakumba.
Ken and Debbie Vance
Ken and Debbie Vance have been missionaries with the United Methodist Church (UMC) for many years. They served in the Democratic Republic of Congo (formerly Zaire), before war forced them to leave in 1997. Ken is an ordained elder in the UMC as well as a pilot. His primary role in Congo was to direct and fly for Wings of the Morning, a mission flight ministry dedicated to transporting those without access to healthcare to medical facilities. Although his role as a pilot is no longer necessary in the work at Kafakumba, he teaches courses at the Kafakumba Pastors' School and dedicates himself to Kafakumba's vision of a transformed Central Africa. He also manages the chicKEN project. Debbie's background in social work has affected all of her work in Africa, continuing in her ministries at Kafakumba. They are the parents of two grown children, Stacey and Joshua, who make their homes in the U.S. Read the Vance's newsletters
Bill and Cassie Bauson
Bill and Cassie are missionaries at Kafakumba. They and the two youngest of their six children, Peter and Keith, moved to Kafakumba from Kokomo, Indiana in September 2010. After a year in Zambia, Peter returned to the U.S. to attend college. Keith returned to the U.S. for college after spending two years in Zambia. Bill currently manages the woodshop at Kafakumba. His focus is on using the technical and management skills he gained from more than 30 years at Delphi Electronics and Safety as he works with the Economic Development projects and improvements to the Kafakumba Training Center. Cassie’s emphasis is to teach life skills and lead Bible studies with local women's groups. Together their musical abilities enhance local worship activities. Five of Bill and Cassie's children (Grace, Laura, Jesse, Peter, and Keith) reside in the United States, while Sarah resides in western Africa. Read the Bauson's newsletters
