Tenwek Hospital


map of Africa

I will be serving at Tenwek, one of the largest mission hospitals in Africa. It is located in the Western Highlands of Kenya, 240 kilometers (150 miles) from Nairobi in the Bomet District of Kenya's Rift Valley Province. Tenwek provides primary health care to 600,000 Kipsigis people within a 32 kilometer radius and serves a referral center for a much larger region. 

Tenwek Hospital is administered as a subsidiary of the African Gospel Church, a protestant denomination in Kenya, in cooperation with the World Gospel Mission.
The World Gospel Mission is the primary mission affiliation for Tenwek Hospital, providing career missionaries and development resources.
The World Medical Mission, a ministry of Samaritan's Purse, is utilized by many short-term visitors and missionaries who serve at Tenwek for periods of weeks up to two years. They have made virtually all of my travel arrangements and have really made the trip planning easy. Chad Cole is my coordinator and I want to thank him and everyone at WMM for their dedicated support.
