After working in medical mission in Nepal from 1988-1991, we felt called to return to work alongside to care, inspire and educate to see God’s love in action.
Dan is developing palliative care services across Nepal. Phillipa is head of student support and student admissions at Kathmandu International Study Centre (KISC).
It was during our first term in Nepal (1988-1991) that Dan first trained in anaesthesia. Returning to the UK he worked as a GP and then as a consultant in palliative medicine in Coventry community and at Myton Hospices. He also led palliative care research and education at Warwick Medical School.
We lived in the Warwick area for 18 years and are members of St Mark’s Church, Leamington Spa. Phillipa trained as a geography teacher, but mostly worked as a teacher of English to speakers of other languages. She is also trained to assess and support students with learning needs and has worked in community adult education. She was also responsible for children’s programmes.
Our sons Ben, James and Alasdair are married to Liz, Katie and Jess respectively. In December 2014 we became grandparents to Noah.
We share Church Mission Society’s values and love being part of a vibrant community that is serving in the name of Christ throughout the world in so many practical and exciting ways.
