Called to Serve: Meet Dean and Cheryl Cowles

Called to Serve: Meet Dean and Cheryl Cowles

Appointed to Kenya in August 2017, Dean and Cheryl Cowles look forward to returning to Tenwek Hospital, where they served as volunteers in the early 1990s.

Why Do You Serve?

We feel called to medical and ministry missions to train, empower, and equip Kenyan physicians and pastors. We served at Tenwek from 1990 to 1992. Our vision then was to see the hospital and local churches grow with locally trained leadership. Coming back 25 years later, it’s exciting to see those dreams being realized. Now we want to take them to the next level, helping to start an OB residency program along with other training and discipleship programs.

Where Will You Serve?

Tenwek Hospital, located in Bomet, Kenya, is a partnership ministry of World Gospel Mission and Africa Gospel Church. The hospital started as a single-nurse dispensary in 1937, and it is now a 300-bed hospital and training center. In addition to being the area’s primary hospital, Tenwek serves as a referral hospital that receives patients from throughout the country. We want to train and empower local believers to reach out to their communities with Christ’s love.

What Will You Do?

Dean: I serve as Friends of Tenwek field director, helping short-term visitors get the most out of their time at Tenwek and in the community. I am also involved in patient follow-up, community health and development, orphan outreach, and chaplaincy ministries.

Cheryl: I serve as an OB/GYN, training Kenyan medical staff to care for high-risk OB patients.

We are grateful to be called by God to be servants to the Kenyan people.

Partner with Dean and Cheryl

PRAY: Pray for our OB patients, the OB Needy Patient Fund, and the chaplaincy school. Pray also that local churches will be empowered to reach out to their communities.
