Delphine Lemaire

Delphine, born on November 25th 1978, to French parents and raised on a boat in Tahiti gave her heart to the Lord in her teenage years. Delphine loved her family dearly and her mother desired for her to follow God. It was through a YWAM team led by the Betts family that went to Tahiti that the call came for missions.

Delphine did her DTS in Dunham, Quebec in 1998 and then came to Perth, Western Australia, to do an Introduction to Primary Health Care School in 2000. She was on staff with YWAM Perth since that time and also completed the Birth Attendant School in 2001. She had such a love for mothers and children that she had commit to 5 years with this school.

Delphine was most notably an evangelist. Whether she was on the train in the city of Perth, at historical sites in Greece, at home in Tahiti with family or in the hospitals of India, Delphine shared her faith. She was a committed follower of Jesus, loyal to the call upon her life and faithful to His plans throughout the earth.

In her father’s words “She taught me to love.”

  1. She was an incredible midwife and trainer, quick to respond to need, always hoping, praying and fighting for the lives of the struggling and pre-term babies. She was arguably one of our best workers and trainers in the field of mother and child health.

  2. Hi everyone i’m Delphine’s sister and i just found out about this memorial site, it’s really great.
    My sister passed away since nearly 3 years now, she’ll have tunr 30 years old in few days…Eventhought from time to time her death still hurt, i just know that she did what she loved the most, serve God, she was in His will and that was her deepest desire… so i want to thanks all her friends and ywam leaders who have been next to her all those years.
    You’re all doing a great job and my sister will for sure just encourage you to Go ON!
    So i pray that she’ll be an example for many to serve Him.


  3. I remember Delpin well, good that she went home to God. She is now in the perfect place. Hope to see you in heaven

  4. This most recent accident of the bus tragedy in Arusha brought back a flood of memories of your death Phina. I can not help but remember all the emotions surrounding that time. I remember you dear friend. Now and always. I know how much you loved people and even pets. One of the funny memories was of our group from IPHC Perth on outreach in India and how you painted that little dog’s sores with Gentian Violet. You cared for all living creatures as gifts from God.
