Leah has been serving as a missionary with Campus Crusade for Christ (CCC) since 1977.

She married Dr. David Darwin (D. Min), an American missionary, in 1981.  Together, they have served for two years in Nigeria, West Africa, and in various ministries in the Philippines.

Leah has been discipling and mentoring women since 1977, and has been a speaker at many conferences and seminars in the Philippines, West Africa, and the USA.

In March of 2004, her first book, Yes I’m a Pastor’s Wife!, was published.  A second book, this time for young and not-so-young single Christian women called, Ten Commandments for Choosing God’s Best, was released in 2013. In 2015, she co-wrote the best-selling book, The Debt-Free Lifestyle with Dr. Andrew Liuson, one of the prominent businessmen in the Philippines. All three books were published by Church Strengthening Ministries.

Since 1993, Leah has been a faculty member of the Partners in Ministry (PIM) program, a certificate program at IGSL that aims to equip ministry wives in the areas of biblical content, godly character, and competence in ministry.  In 2013, she started the PIM Extension (PIM Ex) program, a 30-week mentoring program exclusively for pastors’ wives.  More than 280 pastors’ wives have graduated in the Philippines.

Born in Manila, Philippines, Leah enjoys singing, crocheting, and being a grandmother aside from teaching, writing books, and ministering to women.

Dave and Leah have three sons – Joel, Daniel and Ian. Two of whom are married to her new daughters in love, Marla and Jessa.  The best gifts she has received lately are two grandchildren, Selah and Avery.
