Daniel Beams, PhD.
Agua Yaku Director
Daniel earned a M.S. degree in environmental science from Baylor University (1989) and a Ph.D. in applied anthropology from the University of Kentucky (2001). In his studies and his career he has focused on Christian missions and economic development in rural communities in Latin America. Daniel and his family have lived and worked in Santa Cruz, Bolivia since 2004 and have been missionaries with the EFCCM since 2007. Combining his desire to share the love of Christ with his compassion to help the poor, Daniel founded Agua Yaku, a water well drilling project, as a way to minister to both the spiritual needs and the physical needs of rural families and communities.
