Hello and welcome!
This is a co-written, husband-and-wife blog about our experiences in Kenya while serving at Tenwek Hospital. Normally, Scott is an Internal Medicine Resident at Duke and Whitney has worked as a research assistant and an administrative assistant for a research group, but what she loves to do is interact with people and cook. We have the excuse to live at Tenwek for three months because Duke’s residency allows the residents who are accepted into the Global Medicine Elective to travel to all parts of the world and work for three months in a specific location.
We ranked Tenwek as our number one choice due to its Christian mission, African location (always wanted to go to Africa!), and because this specific hospital was placed on Scott’s heart by God at 2:00AM (at least that’s when Scott sent me–Whitney–an email saying that we were “going to go to Africa!”) in Duke’s Cardiac Critical Care Unit one quite night when God inspired and confirmed that he should apply to go abroad.
We are so excited that we have the opportunity to do this! We pray that we can grow in our faith and learn a lot during this time and that we can reflect Christ to all whom we have the pleasure of meeting.
Thanks for visiting our blog! If you have any questions, please leave a comment or your email and we’ll try to answer you!
Peace to you,
Scott and Whitney
