David and Debbie Lively live in Middletown, IN where they were high school sweethearts who married after graduation. Following college, they moved to Michigan along with the first of their three children. David began a career with GTE in telephone systems and later computer systems. Over the next 25 years, two more children, and over 15 relocations, Debbie became involved with BSF International and began teaching classes in Texas and Indiana, then coaching classes in Indiana and Michigan. Upon retirement, David also began serving with BSF. In 2000, they served with BSF in Zimbabwe until 2005. Following a brief time back in Indiana, they began serving in Southern Africa in various capacities until 2016. Now both of them are involved with their local church and enjoying their three married children who have blessed them with 7 grandchildren. They marvel at God’s grace at all times, in all places, and in all circumstances. Being involved with Mahali pa Maisha helps keep their hearts in Africa. They love all the children and staff there!
