Kevin Darrough

Dear all, 11 January 2009

Earlier this evening Kevin Darrough went to be with the Lord after a long and courageous battle with cancer. Linda and I were privileged to be with him shortly before he passed away, read some Scripture, and prayed with him. He was suffering intensely the last few days but now we know he is enjoying the saint’s everlasting rest.

For those of you who don’t know Kevin and his wife Kim they were students in the first Honolulu DTS along with Linda and I. They have been our dear friends,more like family, since pre-YWAM days and have remained so over the years. Kevin and Kim pioneered "Daybreak’, an evangelistic ministry that toured Asia in the early 80’s performing "Toymaker and Son" and other outreaches.

They later pioneered in Metro Manila and then later in Delhi, India. For the last 12 years they have served at YWAM Honolulu leading Schools of Missions and Evangelism and have been instrumental in seeing many young missionaries released, both short and long term, in the Pacific and Asia.

Kevin had a contagious love for Jesus, a heart for the lost (especially the unreached), and a unique sense of humor. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him.

Please pray for God’s grace for Kim as she has been at Kevin’s side in this battle for the last seven years.

Danny and Linda Lehmann

Kevin Darrough passed away January 10, 2009.
He was a man whose faith was a force.
He pioneered missions bases around the world and had a passion for training young leaders to reach the unreached.
This is a tribute.
…Until we meet again.

YWAM MemorialsA digital place to honor, remember and give thanks to God for those who have died in the service of God through YWAM. has been a digital place to honor, remember and give thanks to God for those who have died in the service of God through YWAM. In the last month, in discussions with Donna Jordan Co-Founder YWAM Associates International and Patricia Talbott leader in YWAM Associates International, we sensed that it was right to blend these two websites together. For Peter Jordan, also Co-Founder of YWAM Associates is now with the cloud of witnesses, this was very much in his heart and so also in honor of Peter these two websites are now blended. Please visit this new Memorial site to see the current Memorials listed or to create a Memorial of a YWAM loved one.
