Dana Abernethy grew up in Muskegon, Michigan. After high school, she left Muskegon to pursue a degree in Bible Theology with a Bible Emphasis at Moody Bible Institute in Chicago. While at Moody, Dana had the unique experience of hosting a Kids Alive Missionary during a mission conference held at the college. She was intrigued with the stories and experiences shared with her during that time and felt a pull toward missions. Soon, the Lord brought a mission aviation major into her life; they married and started serving the Lord and their family together. Her husband worked for Missionary Maintenance Service (MMS) in Coshocton, Ohio while Dana ministered to her young family and those around her.

Less than seven years into their dream, Dana's husband went to be with the Lord. She began working in the office at MMS while continuing to home educate their children and guide them through the trauma of losing their earthly father. Dana strived to teach her children how to cling to their heavenly Father's love and protection in the midst of the grief and the uncertainties that follow such a loss.

As her children were growing and maturing, Dana decided she should leave MMS and go back to college leaving her dream of serving in missions behind; she earned her Bachelor's degree in Nursing four years later. However, during this journey, Dana's heart has been continually drawn toward serving in missions. As she is approaching an empty nest, Dana can look back and see the Lord's guidance. She has faithfully raised her children and fostered a strong love for the Lord into their hearts. Dana's two oldest children have left home and have begun to pursue the dreams the Lord has placed in their hearts for service while her youngest is preparing to attend Moody in the fall of 2019.

Dana feels now is the time to re-enter the mission field with a dream of her own using her nursing skills to benefit those she serves. Dana is excited for the opportunity to follow the path the Lord is opening before her with Kids Alive International.
