Andrea and Mark are surgeons who previously worked for ten years with BMS in Guinea, West Africa. They then completed six years work in the NHS during which time Mark pursued further specialist training in emergency medicine and Andrea in obstetrics and gynaecology. They moved to N'Djamena, the capital of Chad, in 2010, where they brought good news to the poor by working in a new hospital and sharing the experience of life in Jesus. Andrea and Mark have now relocated to Bardai in the north of Chad, where they work in an understaffed government hospital. To better equip them for this work they have learnt Arabic and the Teda language. Andrea and Mark have two children, Ruth and Rebecca.

    After the War – Lest we forget.
    Posted by Andrea and Mark Hotchkin at 20:10 on Nov 14th, 2018
