Danny And Rebecca DeLoach
Missionaries Danny and Rebecca DeLoach met in Dallas, Texas. Danny was preparing to return to an assignment in Papua New Guinea and Rebecca was about to begin her first overseas assignment. Their plans changed as they grew to know one another. They were married on July 14, 2001.
Take the Leap of Faith and Become a Missionary
Danny grew up in rural South Georgia. He became interested in missions while attending Asbury College in Wilmore, Kentucky. Upon graduation, he became a short-term missionary with Wycliffe, USA, and spent three years in Papua New Guinea. The experience changed his life, and he returned to GIAL to train for a career assignment as a missionary.
Rebecca grew up in Liberia, West Africa, the daughter of LBT missionaries Dale and Alvina Federwitz. Through her childhood experiences, she developed a desire that all people would be able to hear God’s message of love and forgiveness in their own language. After graduating from Concordia College in Seward, Nebraska, Rebecca spent four years teaching second grade in Lutheran schools. Although she loved teaching children in the U.S., Rebecca continually felt called to serve as a literacy teacher overseas.
In 2016 Danny completed a PhD in Missiology from Fuller. Danny and Rebecca are associate missionaries of Lutheran Bible Translators serving under the administration of Wycliffe, USA. They serve in Papua New Guinea and elsewhere globally to help people encounter Christ through understanding and applying Scripture to their daily lives.
Danny and Becca have been blessed with three children: Anna, Joshua, and Wesley.
