Kelly & Tricia Huckaby have served in Lusaka, Zambia since July 2010. They live onsite at Camp Ciyanjano with their children: Ethel, Mark, Lucas, Joy and Emmanuel. Ciyanjano is a camping and conference ministry primarily serving poor churches in the compounds of the city. Kelly and Tricia also work to support ACTION Zambia’s other ministries through coordinating event staff and hospitality for trainings and retreats at Ciyanjano. Both Kelly and Tricia especially enjoy working with children in the Bible Clubs and camps, ministering to youth in the Ciyanjano Champs program, and hosting short-term teams. Kelly has a Master’s degree in Teaching and extensive experience in hospitality. Tricia has a BA in English and a background in nonprofit work and public speaking.
In the years since arriving in Lusaka, Kelly and Tricia have been continually amazed at the way God has built up the camping and conference ministry to be a blessing to the Zambian church. Though coming to the ministry without construction experience, God has strengthened Kelly for the task and has brought many people together to assist in the physical development of the property. It is such a privilege to live a life being daily reminded of God’s provision and power for his people. Kelly and Tricia are sent from Oikos church in Bellingham, Washington and have wonderful family and church partners all along the West Coast of the United States and around the world!
Kelly also serves as the ACTION Zambia Country Director.
