Twenty years ago Scott and Tina Lawrence met in seminary, where they first felt God calling them to overseas ministry. After many years of training, Scott as an ophthalmologist and Tina as a nurse practitioner, along with sons James, Jon Nathan, and Joshua, moved to Addis Ababa, Ethiopia last August. Their desire is not only to give the Ethiopian people physical sight through Scott’s ministry as a doctor, but to share the Gospel so that the eyes of many hearts will be opened. Scott, in addition to practicing medicine, trains local eye surgeons with the latest techniques.

The entire Lawrence family has spent their first months on the field learning the heart language of the people, with the boys outpacing their parents in this task. James, Jon Nathan, and Joshua have adapted to life in Ethiopia and are enjoying their new school. The Lawrence family has been touched by humble Christians who show the love of Jesus to those in need.

Prayer Requests

  • Pray for the Lord to give Scott and Tina spiritual refreshment and great awareness of His love and power.

  • Pray for the Lord to help them in language acquisition and all that they need for life in a new culture.

  • Pray for many chances to proclaim the Gospel in word and deed.
