“Love Ya Buddy!”

“Love Ya Buddy!”

Lynn and Jacky BattermanWe are sad to report the passing of a great friend, mentor, and servant’s servant to his new residence in Jesus’s arms. Lynn Battermann was the consummate friend to all who knew him. His love of Jesus translated into practical service around the world and here at home.

Lynn’s energy was relentless. His enthusiasm for making Jesus known was constant. Profoundly affected by his years as a professional engineer in places like the wilds of Alaska and the deserts of Saudi Arabia, Lynn offered his gifts and talents freely through YWAM’s Mission Builders International for the past 30 years, including creating MBI’s RV Associates ministry and serving on MBI’s board of directors up until his passing.

Wherever Lynn and Jacky, his bride of 62 years, traveled, there was laughter and always thirst for adventure. Those adventures led Lynn and Jacky to share an endless repertoire of stories of God’s provision, God’s miracles, and more God stories than the average person can recount.

While we have to say goodbye for now, we can also say with all our hearts, “Love ya buddy!” We’ll see you again someday.
