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.
Warren and his wife Jacqueline have been in Bolivia full time since 2007. Warren joined Danny early on in the project to help develop the spiritual impact of Agua Yaku. Warren and Danny stagger their home assignments so somebody is always on the field keeping the project running. Warren works helping churches in Canada partner with Agua Yaku and other EFCCM projects in Bolivia. He has two girls Nora Elieen 2, and a newborn Amelia Jane.
