Caldwell’s Quilombolas of Brazil
After graduating from Southern Polytechnic University with a degree in civil engineering, Dane chased the American dream for over 20 years designing clean drinking water systems throughout the Southeastern U.S. Along with his wife Cheryl and their three children, Kayla, Elijah, and Luke, they have worked in churches throughout Georgia and Florida. Dane is currently working toward a Masters of Missiology from Southwestern Theological Seminary in Fort Worth, Texas.
In 2012 Dane surrendered from chasing the American dream after God revealed to him that he wasn’t doing anything with his life that mattered in eternity. He and Cheryl decided that they would transition from following the path to the American dream to following God’s call on their life. The Caldwell’s joined LINC-UP missions and Dr. Richie Allen in order to provide clean drinking water and more importantly the gospel of Jesus Christ to the Quilombolas of Brazil. Currently they live six months each year in Brazil and six months in the U.S. as they raise their own support in order to push back spiritual darkness with the gospel of Jesus Christ.

Taiwan Calling – The Ragans
Wayne and Roni Ragan were both born and raised in Columbus, Georgia. Each found (or were found by) the Lord at a very early age. The Ragan’s grew up in local churches where they not only heard the Word, but saw it in action. After marrying at Edgewood Baptist the couple received intense training in discipleship and evangelism.
Wayne and Roni home schooled their 3 children until the kids reached high school age. The kids are now married and have blessed their parents with 6 amazing grandchildren.
Once the children ‘flew the coop’ Wayne and Roni became ever more involved in mission activity. Roni served the Columbus Baptist Association for five years followed by another five years at RiverTown Church where she facilitated home and foreign missions. Wayne volunteered at Mission Columbus (CBA), Chiapas, Mexico and various short term trips to Tennessee and Kentucky.
After 3 short term trips to Thailand and Taiwan the couple sensed a definite call to Taiwan. Embracing the George Mueller philosophy and having read ‘Radical’ by IMB President David Platt, the Ragan’s ‘gave it all away’, packed 2 suitcases each and, as Abraham of old, heeded the call to ‘Go to a land I will show you’!
Their ministry is as varied as the flowers of Taiwan! A walk in the park becomes a conversation about the Creator, a wait at the bus stop ends with greeting a fellow believer and walking the dog becomes an opportunity to share Jesus with someone who has never heard before. The Ragan’s spend much time in the public schools, discipling young professionals and going to school to learn Mandarin! Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks. The Ragan’s proclaim, “God desires your availability and will give you the ability! Just take that first step and obey!
