Call to Missions

I always had an affinity and interest in the missionaries that would come through and who were supported by our church as a child. Also, I had a desire to pursue medicine from an early age. That pursuit stemmed from a desire to help others, it was a practical way to show love and compassion. My Christian worldview changed on my first short-term mission trip to Oaxaca Mexico with Global Frontier Missions (GFM) as a 1st-year medical student. It was the first time I had heard of an unreached people group or the 10/40 window. I was also shocked to learn the staggering statistics surrounding those who have no access to the Gospel and their desperate need for laborers.

Healthcare Mission Work

Outpatient/clinic and hospital medicine focused on chest disease (Tuberculosis).

Anticipated Impact
  1. Evangelism, souls saved - extend the Gospel to all the different nations presented in this country.
  2. 2. Discipleship of local believers - to present believers fully mature unto Christ. I think in so doing, there should be a consideration and deliberate effort for the local believers to reach their own and potentially beyond. There has to be some focus on replication and to minimize dependence.
  3. Improved community health/wellness - to labor with the skills given to me by God and serve the local community and their health needs.
