We are Taylor and Laura Myatt, outdoor conservationist and OB/GYN doctor. Our story is founded in family, the community of believers, and the persistent whispering of an eternal God. Our inherited denominational roots in the Nazarene Church led us each to degrees from Mount Vernon Nazarene University in 2012, after which we married and Laura dove head first into medical school. Taylor worked as an arborist and eventually returned to academia to earn a Master of Environmental Science degree. In 2016, we moved to southeast Michigan for Laura's 4 year OB/GYN residency and are now taking the leap into full-time mission work.
We have long felt a special love for medical missions in Papua New Guinea. Laura developed her passion for medicine through the example of her father, a dedicated OB/GYN. Taylor's heritage includes relatives and family friends that have served in Kudjip. Together we have shared a mutual desire for a simple, service-oriented lifestyle in a cross-cultural context. God has used these strong influences to shape our path toward PNG, and we are humbled to fulfill His call in a place we have grown to love.
We are blessed to join the Kudjip family with the support of the Samaritan's Purse Post-Residency Program. Laura will serve in the hospital delivering babies and caring for the women of Papua New Guinea. Taylor will serve on the mission station helping maintain facilities and manage operations. Thank you for partnering with us.
