His House of Hope - Bet Eman is a ministry of the Evangelical Presbyterian Church of South Sudan, operated by Harvesters Reaching the Nations (click here for hospital website link). It is a 40+ bed hospital and clinic dedicated to the medical and spiritual care of women and children and to the training and empowerment of medical professionals in South Sudan. Our mission is "to invite others to follow Jesus as we provide, teach, and empower health care of women and children in South Sudan." Our hope is that as the people seek medical care, they will also encounter the truth and hope found only in Jesus. Medically, we strive to decrease child and maternal mortality by increasing the number of attended births, providing operative deliveries (C-sections, vacuum, forceps), providing antenatal care, training local health providers, providing pediatric care, and doing health education at the center and in the community. Jeff serves as the medical director and actively provides medical care in this setting.
Through our daily work and lives, we seek to disciple orphans, hospital staff, people in the church, and others from the community as God leads us in relationship. We continue our discipleship of our own precious children as well! The church is strengthened as individuals are sharpened.
We seek to walk out our call to be a family committed to Christ and struggling with daily issues of life amongst those in Yei, South Sudan. Elizabeth continues to nurture and homeschool our 8 youngest children (Alex is working in the US). This gives others a picture of an intact Christian family.
