David & Lynne Champlin, Suriname

"Second Generation Missionaries"

David, his parents and siblings have ministered in Suriname since June 1965. David & Lynne have ministered together in Suriname since they married in 1975.

Their ministry strives to give the Gospel of Jesus Christ to the many lost souls who are dying without Christ or a hope of heaven.

Lynne does literacy work, holds children’s Bible clubs & Bible studies to literate students, translates and prepares Bible story lessons, even hand-illustrating each lesson. Many of the materials she has prepared are in use by other ministries within Suriname.

Dave is the field administrator which means he wears a variety of hats – not only as a preacher, teacher and evangelist but also a mechanic, welder, plumber, electrician, medic and general jack-of-all-trades. He supports the work of those in the jungle ministry. He preaches in several churches each month as part of their effort to support the local believers who now lead in the day-to-day ministry efforts in their respective areas. Much of his time is spent supporting, counseling and visiting those in leadership.
