Anticipated Impact

I will continue at the Centro Evangelico de Medicina in Lubango. I am the surgical director and the internship director. My ministry is very much based at the hospital. I do a surgical trip every few months to another more rural hospital where there isn't a full-time surgeon, but otherwise I'm at the hospital. Patients come from all over the country with complex surgical problems. We pray with all our patients on rounds and have a chance to share Christ with them. Discipling interns is another big part of my work, teaching them to be competent physicians but also showing them ways to live out their faith in their profession, how medicine can be ministry.
