7 in PNG
Nathan first became interested in medicine during middle school. Following three mission trips in college he knew God was leading him towards medical missions.
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.
We lived in Israel where Nathan attended a medical school which focused on International Medicine. After completing residency in the US he started practicing Family Medicine.
Throughout school, training and practicing medicine we were blessed with five children. Our oldest three are biological and the youngest two were adopted and have Down syndrome.
In January of 2015 we heard about the need for doctors in Papua New Guinea. As we began to look into the possibility of our family meeting this need, every door we thought would be closed was opened and we are now planning to move our family of 7 to PNG in the fall of 2016.
