My name is Brandon Lance and I am the Optical Coordinator for MMO. I live in Baltimore, Maryland with my wife and high-school sweetheart Laura, and our daughter Evelyn.  I studied Homeland Security and after serving ten years in law enforcement, felt the Lord calling me to work in missions!  Several short weeks after my first trip to Kenya, I knew that I was supposed to make a change and have been working full-time with MMO since 2015.  Laura and I enjoy traveling (especially visiting family back in Ohio!), music, and discovering new favorite restaurants.  


Fun Facts About Me

My favorite trip location is Kenya, or anywhere in South America.

The best piece of advice I've ever been given is to ask for God's direction. He will give it to you.

If I could invent a holiday, it would definitely involve feats of strength.

A piece of advice I would give a volunteer team member who wants to join one of our trip woud be what are you waiting for?!  Make the decision and watch God use it in your life and in the lives of others.

Cats or dogs? Dogs. No question.

My favorite word in the English language is barbecue.

If I could snap my fingers and become an expert in something it would be Spanish!

To me the most inspiring part of my job is seeing such a difference made in people's lives in such a short amount of time.

The most important thing I learned before high school was the importance of family. 

If I were a superhero, my superpower would be silence.
