Trust in the Lord with all of your heart, and do not lean on your own understanding. In all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make straight your paths. Proverbs 3:5–6 (ESV)

We have found this to be true in our lives. As we look back, everything that has happened to us prior to coming to Tenwek in June of 2021 was preparation for our current service. God has shaped us through many experiences as we raised our family, were part of Christian communities, and as we worked in our professional careers.  

I, Robert, have had a long career as a cardiovascular perfusionist in the United States. God is using my experience and skills in amazing ways as I serve here—teaching, caring for patients, and working with the team to build the largest cardiac center in Sub-Saharan Africa.

As for me, Holly, God has called me to work in areas of my life that have been my passions for years: teaching, sewing, and spending time with kids. I have been tutoring seventh graders and will teach a fourth-grade history class in the coming year. I am working with graduates of the sewing school here at Tenwek (Threads of Hope), helping them to market their goods and meeting with them for Bible study. Every week, I find ways to encourage and engage with the global workers and their children. We thank God for bringing us to serve in a place that is a perfect fit for us.

Tenwek Hospital is a Christian community that seeks to exemplify Christ in all aspects of what we do. We strongly believe that "We treat but Jesus, ultimately, is the One that heals." We thank God for the privilege of being part of this community and for the opportunity to witness firsthand physical and spiritual healing from the hand of God.

We are grateful to God for our friends and family that love us, encourage us, pray for us, and provide financial support to sustain us.
