Leanne is based in Honduras, where she has lived since January 2009. Her academic training includes a BA in Spanish, with certification in elementary and bilingual education, along with an MA from Michigan State University in educational administration and literacy. Leanne’s passion is adult literacy and learning, so her focus as a program consultant was on literacy and the training aspects of partner agency programs.
Leanne and her husband Caspar began working with World Renew in 1982 and have served in the Dominican Republic and Haiti. Caspar recently finished an MA in Missions from Calvin Theological Seminary and now works for Christian Reformed World Missions in church development.
Their adult son, Reuben, is living and working in Canada.
