Nazarene Hospital is excited to announce our two new doctors have arrived, had some cultural orientation in the bush, and are now simultaneously learning Tok Pisin, tropical medicine, and the culture of PNG. More than that they are already contributing to this great ministry here. We are excited to see what God will do in their ministries here! Please pray for them as they adjust and minister here.
We have been blessed over the years to partner with World Medical Mission and Samaritan’s Purse programs for helping bring missionaries doctors for long and short term to work with the Nazarene Hospital. This year we are blessed to have Dr Sheryl Uyeda, a General Surgeon. Dr Sheryl is coming through Samaritan’s Purse Post-Residency program. Dr. Sheryl visited Kudjip Nazarene hospital in 2016 for two weeks as a resident and felt the call to serve in PNG. Dr. Sheryl adds to our growing surgical ministry that is not only seeing more surgery patients, but training rural doctors to be able to do surgery in rural areas of PNG.
Nathan and Beckey Mason
Dr. Nathan Mason, Family Practitioner with his wife Beckey and children- Jeremiah, Josiah, Naomi, Caleb, and Lydia came through the Church of the Nazarene. Nathan first became interested in medicine during middle school. Following three mission trips in college he knew God was leading him towards medical missions. Dr. Nathan will be helping with general medicine needs in outpatient, inpatient, and taking over Dr. Andy’s talipe’s clinic (club-foot children).
Beckey felt called to the mission field as a child and had her heart drawn to helping orphans with disabilities following a summer mission trip during college.
The kids are adjusting well to the new setting and are a great addition to this big missionary family.
