Nathan and Beckey Mason
Serving in Melanesia/SouthPacific on Global Deployment | Asia-Pacific
Nathan first became interested in medicine during middle school. Following three mission trips in college he knew God was leading him towards medical missions.
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.
We lived in Israel where Nathan attended at a medical school that focused on International Medicine. After completing residency in the USA he started practicing Family Medicine.
Throughout school, training and practicing medicine, we were blessed with five children. The oldest three are biological and the youngest two were adopted and have Down syndrome.
In January of 2015 we watched a video about the need for doctors at Nazarene Hospital in Papua New Guinea. As we began to look into the possibility of our family meeting this need every door we thought would be closed was opened. In early 2017 we moved around the world and are now living in Papua New Guinea to help bring physical and spiritual healing to the people in the Western Highlands. Follow our ministry at 7inPNG.com
Going Where the Church is Not Yet
Today there are over 4.3 billion people who live in areas where there is little to no gospel witness. 4.3 billion people who have not heard the message of the gospel, who have never heard the name of Jesus. We believe that everyone deserves to hear. God continues to call the Church of the Nazarene to spread the message of the gospel, to preach holiness, and to bring good news to the poor all over the world. The task is enormous; far too big for anyone to do alone, but together we can go where the church is not yet and see people, communities, and nations transformed. Reaching these people begins with one step, a step of obedience and faithfulness that says yes to God’s call. Take your first step and start your journey toward serving in missions today.
