I got saved towards the end of college, and was already in medical school before I realized God might have other plans for my life. I started praying and asking God if He wanted me to be a physician or not, and if so what kind. Through a mission trip, He revealed the kind of physician He wanted me to be, one who follows Christ in all things and who shares Christ with others. During my medical training, the call changed from being a physician to being a missionary physician.
After graduating from the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine in 2004, I moved to South Texas for my residency training. I graduated from the Valley Baptist Family Practice Residency Program in 2007 and then made my way to Papua New Guinea to work at Nazarene Hospital. I initially served through World Medical Mission’s Post Residency Program, but as the end of my 2 years was up, I felt God calling me to stay. Since that time, I have joined the Nazarene Church and am now serving as a Nazarene Missionary to bring Help, Hope, and Healing to all those who come to Nazarene Hospital.
