Lydia Duncan

Dean of English

I am from the state of North Carolina. I was saved at the age of 6, and when I was 15, I started to sense that God was calling me to become a missionary. After high school, I studied for two years at the Word of Life Bible Institute in N.Y. I came to Poland during my second year as a student, and God captured my heart for Poland. After two years, God continued to remind me of the great need in Poland, so I came as a missionary intern for two years. Since being in Poland, I’ve been involved in teaching English in many settings: camp, public school, private tutoring, and small-group lessons. English is currently a huge evangelism tool here! I have now been serving with Word of Life in Poland since 2017, and full-time since 2019. My role in the school is teacher support and evaluating/monitoring students’ educational needs.
