How We Do It

For MedSend healthcare professionals from the U.S., we provide grants that remove the obstacle of educational debt and specialized training to equip them for the unique challenges they face. For MedSend Nationals healthcare professionals, our grants help them get advanced medical training, Christian mentoring and leadership training.

Why We Do It

To a world reeling with physical and spiritual suffering, MedSend healthcare professionals bring the best healthcare education and training our society has to offer. And they bring the only true power to change hearts and lives: God’s love.

Julie and I had a close walk with the Lord before we were married. She was a career missionary from New Zealand working at an orphanage in Mozambique. Just before I started medical school, the Lord sent me on a short-term mission trip at that same orphanage. We have been married now for 15 years and God has given us five beautiful children and as many of you know, one of our children died at an early age. I went to East Africa with my pastor for two weeks and the Lord lit a fire in my heart for missions work in there. I called home to tell Julie and she said she had a peace about it, but she wanted the Lord to call the children also. At that time, the children were listening to the biography of Amy Carmichael and the Lord used it to inspire them to missions. Ultimately, the entire family was on board. Don’t get us wrong – we loved our lives in the U.S. The church, the Christian school. I loved my patients, I loved working at the hospital and I had a decent salary. Everything was good. Why leave?

Living cross-culturally is a near constant school in the wonder of how others think, feel, and process differently. The lessons abound, the perspectives shape us, and the yet there is the sense (and truth) that we will always be “other.” One arena where we feel most alien is in collective vs. individual thought. We have so much to learn about how our people view community. To illustrate how extremely essential it is for them: in interviews done by others, the great majority of our people agreed with the statement that they would rather go to hell with their families than go to heaven without them.

There are not many times that I feel that you desire medical stories and testimonies of my days in medicine here at Kijabe. In fact, most of you who read our blog are not “medical” at all and I fear you would find these stories boring or confusing. But some stories need to be told, especially when there is nothing “medical” to explain what happened.

In Their Words


I am so grateful for the support of MedSend.  Words cannot describe how great of a blessing this it to our family.  There was someone who prayed for me six years ago that said who God would completely take care of my student loans.  This grant is an answer to six years of prayers.  Most importantly, there will be so many lives changed because of your help.

This year has been another year of profound changes and turmoil in the world at large and at home.  I love MedSend because through it, I can engage the world beyond me in a way that offers people not only healthcare that they would not otherwise have, but also the opportunity for true healing and wholeness that comes only through faith in Jesus Christ.

I am officially a MedSend grant recipient.  Do you know what this   means? This means that when you can’t afford to, there may be other people who can afford to lift you up. Due to the hard work that MedSend puts into getting donations, we now don’t have to worry about making my monthly loan payments while we are in Guatemala. The generous people who donate to MedSend have us covered.

When I first heard of MedSend some years ago, it was the most compelling talk I had ever heard for a nonprofit group.  Here was this doctor telling the audience that God had used his presence in Nigeria to essentially bring an entire tribe of over 80,000 people to the Lord through astonishingly miraculous means.
