We have been asked by the World Headquarters of the Seventh-day Adventist Church to serve as missionaries to West Africa. Scott is a General Surgeon and Bekki is a Registered Nurse. The mission term is for five years, but at this time we plan on completing our medical careers in the mission field. We have two children, Jonathan who is starting his Masters of Divinity program at the SDA Seminary at Andrews University in Berrien Springs, MI. Lindsay is our daughter who graduated on May 8, 2016 from Southern Adventist University with a degree in Biology and teaching certificate for Science, grades 6-12. She will start her career at the Taipei Adventist American School in Taiwan teaching the eighth grade.
After 27 months at the Adventist Surgical Center in Moundou, Tchad we were called to Waterloo Adventist Hospital in Sierra Leone, where Scott is the Medical Director. We began our work there on April 1, 2016. Scott will be developing the surgical department as well as working with the local administrative staff on hospital development. Bekki will serve as Supervisor of Clinical Services and Materials Management. As Sierra Leone recovers from its devastating battle against the Ebola virus we have found the needs here to be great. We are always happy to welcome committed volunteers, for short term missions or longer ones. We also welcome Student Missionaries from SDA colleges and Universities.

It is our prayer that our blog will inspire you to serve our God wherever He calls you.
