Papua New Guinea: Kudjip Nazarene Hospital is excited to announce the arrival of two new doctors who are joining their team!

Dr. Sheryl Uyeda

Dr. Sheryl is a General Surgeon, coming through Samaritan’s Purse Post- Residency program. Samaritan’s Purse has been partnering with Kudjip Nazarene Hospital for many years in helping to bring missionary doctors. In 2016, Dr. Sheryl visited the hospital for two weeks as a resident, where she felt the call to serve in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea. Kudjip Nazarene Hospital is very blessed to have Dr. Sheryl, not only as an addition to their growing ministry that sees and takes care of surgery patients, but also to train rural doctors to do surgery in rural areas in the Highlands.

Nathan and Beckey Mason

Dr. Nathan Mason, a Family Practitioner, together with his wife Beckey, came through the Church of the Nazarene. Dr. Nathan first became interested in medicine during middle school.  He knew God was leading him toward medical missions after joining three mission trips in college.  Dr. Nathan will be helping with general medicine needs in outpatient, inpatient, and taking over Dr. Andy’s talipe’s clinic (club-foot children).

Meanwhile, 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.

Dr. Nathan and Beckey have five children- Jeremiah, Josiah, Naomi, Caleb, and Lydia, who are adjusting well to the new setting. The Masons are great additions to the missionary families in Papua New Guinea.

Dr. Sheryl, Dr. Nathan, and Becky have already completed the initial phase of cultural orientation in the bush. Currently, they are simultaneously learning Tok Pisin, tropical medicine and the cultures of Papua New Guinea. We are so truly grateful for their contributions to the ministry, and are excited to see what God will do with them onboard!

Please include Dr. Sheryl and the Masons in your prayers as they adjust and minister in the Highlands. May their presence make more Kingdom Impact at Kudjip Nazarene Hospital and in the surrounding communities.
