With ongoing violence and rebel activity along the river, we begin to receive a number of wounded combatants . . . During our Christmas Service, the Holy Spirit brings about a revival among our patients and their families! How thrilling to see people who were trying to kill each other a few weeks before, worshipping and praising God together in the hospital chapel! Read more

Warm greetings from Impfondo, Republic of Congo! It is hard to have any other kind of greeting coming from this land! Itís winter here now, so sometimes at night it gets down to the low 70ís and the humidity drops below 85%! We add a blanket and wear long sleeves! Well, the purpose of this letter is not to talk about the weather, but to highlight whatís been happening since our last newsletter, and to thank you for your interest and investment in our lives...

We’ve been working full-time trying to start Republic of Congo’s Pioneer Christian Hospital for a long time now.

God is faithful. He has supplied all of our needs to date... That’s good news. The bad news is that we still only have one doctor and one nurse who are committed to serving here long-term. We can’t open a 46-bed general mission hospital without more staff. We urgently need more missionary doctors & nurses, to get started & help train local workers. Is God calling you? Read more

As the landing gear of our plane lifted off New York soil and we left our loved ones behind, tears began to flow. The stress of months of packing and saying goodbyes finally found release as we let our emotions fly. We were airborne, past the point of no return, on to our third term of service as medical missionaries to the Republic of Congo... A lot of the groundwork has been laid. Literally. It has taken almost a year to level the ground with hoes, since most of the hospital compound had been used to grow manioc... We are poised to make rapid improvements and renovations on the future hospital compound... Read more

Good-bye BONGOLO, Hello IMPFONDO! Of course these may just be funny looking words to you, but for us the mention of these two African towns brings into focus albums full of wonderful people, pleasant memories, and hope for the future. We have left Gabon, and are now safely back in Congo... There is an undeniable need for primary health care in this area. The town elders are very discouraged... Many are suffering--indeed many have died--without seeing a doctor, simply because they have no hope of ever having enough money to buy the simple treatments that could save their lives. Read more
