Since returning from Egbe, Nigeria in the summer of 2013, our lives became Swept Away by the faith, love, and hope in our Lord Jesus Christ. So transformed by His grace, we were compelled to return to Egbe. However, this time joining the Egbe Hospital Team full time!
We are working for SIM (Serving in Missions) who has, along with Samaritans Purse, been working to restore Egbe Hospital back to its once vibrant condition! Egbe Hospital located in the southwest region of Nigeria was built in 1952. Established by a missionary family they developed the motto of “Christ Heals.” Egbe Hospital aims to care for every patient with the love and compassion of Jesus Christ. People sometimes walk for as long as three days to reach the hospital. Therefore, making this place a beacon of light and the center to one of the largest evangelical movements in western Africa!
However, in recent years it has become apparent that in order for Egbe Hospital to keep its doors open it was in dire need of significant repairs to its infrastructure, staff housing, and operating systems. The revitalization project is allowing Egbe Hospital to continue proclaiming the gospel through providing medical care.
Now back in Egbe we are using our gifts to re-establish a once vibrant missionary community. Katie, as a teacher for missionary families and Nick as Hospital Equipment Manager.
