Every 2am, Ruby would see her husband Danny on his knees, earnestly praying before God.

It was in 1998 when they decided to step out in faith to be missionaries in Burkina Faso, West Africa, not knowing that the battle would be as much.

Burkina Faso is a country in West Africa with 15 million population. It is one of the poorest countries in the world with no natural resources and is mostly in drought.

Knowing all these factors, a lot of people discouraged Danny and Ruby Bayasen from going but their hearts were already set to heed God’s call.

Life in the field wasn’t blissful. There were disheartening moments for Danny when the ministry in Burkina seemed unfruitful. But then, God continually sustained him and his family.

Their relentless faith and burning passion to reach the lost for God’s glory were the reasons they were awarded as the Huwarang OFW 2015 for the missionary category.

“We were grateful to the Lord because people appreciate it. This reminds us that the Lord will reward us for all the good things that we have done here on earth through His name,” Danny said.

Danny and Ruby’s stay in Burkina for more than 15 years were remarkable. They were able to put up 3 schools, a church building, and a Bible school.

Superbook and Kairos materials were successfully translated into French, which is the principal language in the country, making it a powerful tool to further the ministry in Burkina.

Danny and Ruby’s faithfulness are inspiring and a few years later, God called them again for a new assignment.

In July 10, 2017, Danny Bayasen was officially welcomed as the CBN Asia’s Asian Center for Missions (ACM) Philippines’ Director.

“It’s very challenging. We are used to do field work for 19 years and now we will come back in a corporate setting,” Danny shares.

“Remain faithful with the work that the Lord has entrusted to you. If you are faithful, the blessing will come. The word of God says, goodness and mercy shall follow you all the days of your life if you love God and you are faithful to him,” says Ruby when asked about her message to the current Huwarang OFW nominees.
