Missionaries don’t go on Mission, they are sent.

Mission Doctors are sent by all of you who make their mission possible. Serving in response to their faith and sharing their professional skills, Mission Doctors are sent to be a sign of God’s love.

We wanted to introduce you to Dr. Brian and Dr. Robyn Jennings and their two young children, Emily and Jack.  The Jennings joined the formation program for long-term service this summer. We asked them a couple of questions as they were packing to move to the Mission House in Los Angeles for the four-month formation program.

What motivates you to serve?  When we think of the sacrifices and gifts Christ has given to us, we want to follow in his footsteps of service and help to build His Church.

Why did you choose to serve with MDA?  MDA has a long history of sending Catholic physicians overseas, so we felt we could trust them to get us to an area that could use our help.

What do you hope your children will get out of your three years in mission?  We hope our children will grow spiritually and learn to love all types of people.

What would you like to say to the supporters/donors of the program? Thank you for making it possible for us to say “yes,” to God’s call to missions.  Thank you for caring for the healthcare needs of our brothers and sisters around the world.

We will continue to share with you the mission of this young family.

Please keep them in your prayers.
