Since our first date, we have had missions on our minds. In fact, one of the first things Maureen told Tim was that she wanted to be a physician so that she could serve Christ through missions. It has been over a decade since that first date, but God has been faithful and has guided us to this point in our lives.
Our Story . . .
God has been leading us toward serving Him in full-time ministry for most of our lives. He revealed His plan for medical missions to Maureen at the 1994 Urbana Conference. He instilled in Tim a love for teaching and led him to deepen his knowledge in Church History. Tim would later use this knowledge to impact students’ lives by showing them God’s hand in history.
In 2004, God allowed us to experience how our gifts could be used for His kingdom as we served in Jos, Nigeria for two months. We knew then that He would call us back to the mission field.
We heard God say “It’s time,” as Maureen was completing her medical training. Through prayer, a partnership with SIM began which resulted in an appointment to Egbe, Nigeria. We will be serving as part of a team that will bring the Gospel to the Yoruba people. Maureen will be ministering through medicine while Tim ministers through teaching.
