Serving In: Ghana
External ID: 193

Julie Mckeighen has served with Rafiki Foundation since 2009. She served as the Headmaster in Liberia from 2009 to 2017, but also took on the Village Administrator role from 2013 to 2017. She recently moved to the Rafiki Village Ghana, where she is the Headmaster. Before she began her work with Rafiki, Julie was a school music teacher, church choir director, and the supervisor of clothing development and production in a historical reproduction company. She received a Bachelor of Science in Music Education from Grace College in Winona Lake, Indiana. Before becoming a full-time missionary, she went with Rafiki on a short-term trip to Uganda. She chose to join Rafiki on its mission to “befriend” widows and orphans in their distress because she had a heart for God’s orphans. She says that God used many people to affirm His calling of her as she began to think about serving on the field. In fact, she says that those around her may have recognized her calling to be a full-time missionary before she even recognized it! 

Julie says that living in Africa has convinced her of her need for the Lord. She is thankful that He has blessed her with the gift of ministry—a gift she knows only comes from Him! The Lord has taught her the importance of humility; she is reminded that He is pleased with a broken and contrite heart. Julie has also experienced God’s continual provision while working on the field. She has seen Him protect an entire Rafiki Village from Ebola outbreaks, and He has often given her the words to speak when she is at a loss. She thanks the Lord that He continues to teach her to wait upon Him while she serves in Africa, continuing to sanctify her in the Spirit. 

“Lift up your eyes and look on the fields, that they are white for harvest”
(John 4:35).
