Our ministry in Ghana’s North East Region is multi-faceted – running the gamut of medical care, volunteer coordinating, pastoral ministry, discipleship, and personal evangelism. However, our priority is always to make Christ’s name known to the peoples of northern Ghana.
October 2014 to present
June – July 2013
Heidi finished her general surgery residency at MCCG and before she began a one year surgery fellowship in Cordele, GA, she returned to BMC in Nalerigu to volunteer for a month. As in 2007, Trey and William went as well and the family lived on the hospital compound for a month.
September – October 2008
A year after their first trip, William returned to Nalerigu, Ghana to provide IMB media coverage of the festivities around the hospital’s 50th anniversary. Heidi was still working as a surgery resident in Macon, GA and Trey stayed with his grandparents during William’s absence.
October 2007 – January 2008
Heidi was in her fourth and final year of medical school at USF and was able to choose a rotation to do for a month or two at a time. At the same time, the IMB has a medical receptorship program that Heidi was accepted into. This program paid all of Heidi’s expenses to work for two months or more at any overseas Baptist hospital. Heidi decided to go to Nalerigu, Ghana to work at the Baptist Medical Clinic for 3 months. Her time there counted as a foreign study rotation at USF.
William used the trip to offer computer support to the hospital and personnel in Nalerigu. He also spent 45 days traveling around West Africa doing media coverage for IMB.
Trey was only one year old at the time and adapted very well to our new home in Ghana’s north.
