Kurt and Amy are actively planning to serve at Soddo Christian Hospital in Soddo, Ethiopia beginning summer 2017. Soddo is in the Wolaitta region of Ethiopia and has several solid evangelical churches. However, the area is still one of the poorest in the world where many people have dire physical needs. Soddo Christian Hospital is a place where people come in search of physical healing and often receive spiritual healing as well. It is also a place of training up and sending out Christian health professionals who bring physical and spiritual healing to people in under-served and unreached places throughout Africa.
Kurt is a civil engineer with 28 years of commercial construction experience. He will oversee expansion of the hospital’s facilities, train the maintenance staff, and participate in discipling employees regarding the integration of faith and work. Amy’s educational background is hospital administration. She will assist the Ethiopian staff in improving quality, provide administrative support to the Pan African Academy of Christian Surgeons residency program, and be involved with employee discipleship groups.
