David and Akiko Bauson

My Story

Dave grew up in a Navy family stationed at several places in the United States and abroad. After studying mechanical engineering and working for General Motors he moved to Dallas Texas. He obtained a Masters Degree in Theology at Dallas Theological Seminary and returned to Seattle.

Akiko grew up in Japan and moved to Texas where she studied at Abilene Christian University. Then on to Louisiana State University where she earned a Masters Degree in Higher Education Administration.

They met at church in Seattle, where the Lord gave them many opportunities to serve in church leadership and Christian Education. God moved in both of their lives towards serving Him in Chiang Mai, Thailand. They will work in the School of Promise, a Christian elementary school that ministers to children at risk and their families.

Ministries will include training teachers, managing communications for the school, and sharing the Gospel with the children and their families.
