Our ministry in northern Ghana 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
Heidi accepted as position as a general surgeon at the Baptist Medical Centre. The Hauns returned to Ghana as career missionaries serving with the International Mission Board
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
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 - 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, aka “Cutest Baby in the US of A,” went to Ghana to try and claim the international title by checking out the competition overseas. He primarily served as “morale booster” for his parents when they were tired of the heat and long work hours.
