In March of 2014, we had the privilege of joining our friend Dr. Andreassen on a short medical mission trip to the Gilbert Islands. From that experience, we found that the need for medical care was insufficient and absolutely overwhelming. Therefore, we decided to open a Medical Clinic on the island of TARAWA , to help fulfill this need of medical necessity, by providing services on a longer mission trip, of at least one year. Our family will be in charge of opening and operating the remote clinic there, and Doctor Andreassen is our medical advisor.
Our intent is to bring people closer to Christ through service. This is a two fold mission and is intended to help and improve both their temporary and physical needs, as well as their, spiritual needs. Our focus will be on providing urgently needed medical care to their nation and on educating them on the basics principles of personal hygiene and wellness.
We will also be educating them on the effects that polluting their surrounding Ocean and physical environment has on their personal Health and well being. We feel as we are able to serve them medically, they will better be able to focus on their spiritual needs, thus bringing them unto Christ.
At this time, we are still falling short on resources that will be of great use to our Clinic’s mission. We would like to invite you to become a part of this ministry and participate in financial support of any kind. It will be with grateful hearts that we will put these funds to good use in serving these families.
We would like to thank you in advance for any and all of the help, and especially your prayers. Also, we appreciate the time you have taken to consider this request.
Serge, Nadia and Family.
