Dan and Melody Taube
Dan and Melody will tell you they were totally surprised when they got an unexpected invitation from Inca Link to work in a church plant in San Jose, Costa Rica. Inca Link was looking for a couple experienced in church planting and who are fluent in Spanish. For Dan and Melody, it was God’s response to their desire to be fruitful in their later years.
They have been getting used to God wonderfully surprising them from the time they left the pastorate of 4½ years in Mount Vernon, Ohio, for language school in Costa Rica with four children under the age of five. Some may have thought they were crazy back then, but God has proven faithful and made them fruitful for 25 years in Argentina. When God suddenly presented another ministry to pastor a church in Columbus, Indiana, they considered it their last ministry assignment and settled in to love all that God had for them the nine years they were there.
They have learned to trust God from the time Jesus came into their lives as young children. They will tell you from experience, “God always knows what He is doing and we choose to trust Him.” They sense it a privilege to be asked to do Kingdom work alongside Pastor Mario and Lorena Barboza in the Spring of Life and Hope Church, teaching and training men and women, young people and children to love and serve the Lord Jesus.
