The Cooke family have been serving as missionaries in Papua New Guinea since 2013, joining Samaritan Aviation in 2014, and began serving in Wewak in 2015. As the Country Director for Samaritan Aviation, Chris leads our team in PNG as they carry out the mission: to provide the hope found only in Jesus, and to provide access to life-saving medical treatment to thousands of people living in remote villages along the Sepik River. As our Ministry & Outreach Coordinator, Sarah oversees our hospital ministry, as well as our medical and evangelistic outreaches. They are blessed to be able to serve alongside of their 7 children.

The need is so great and may seem overwhelming but YOU can help. You CAN make a difference! Please consider supporting the Cooke’s financially on a monthly basis so that they may continue on in the work God has called them to in PNG.

Thank you for your support! We take your gifts seriously, and we make every effort to maximize your investment in our ministry.
