Jesse, Priscilla, Ethan (5) and Oliver (4) Wong are from Cobourg, Ontario, Canada. We have been on a journey for many years in discerning the call from God for missions.
Dr Jesse Wong is a general dentist and Priscilla is an occupational therapist. Our first conversation ever prior to dating was on the topic of missions in 2001. Since then, we have been on short term mission trips to Aboriginal reserves and in Ghana, West Africa.
In 2007, right after we were married, we moved to Moose Factory, Northern Ontario, to live and work among the Cree providing health care. Since moving back to the city to raise our 2 boys, we have had a stirring in our hearts to answer the call to use our God-given skills and training for the purpose of serving the poor and destitute in this world.
After many months of prayer, we sensed God's leading for our family to serve in Kibogora Hospital, Rwanda. Dr Jesse's ministry includes general dental surgery, outfitting and updating the dental clinic, training the current dental team and providing spiritual discipleship and teaching wherever needed. Priscilla is busy homeschooling our two young boys; raising them up in their knowledge and practice of their faith..
We also are in the lives of our fellow Rwandan countrymen, sharing in fellowship and discipleship. We believe in the value of long term relationships built on trust, which allow us the privilege of speaking into each other`s lives and encourage spiritual growth.
