Meet Robert

Sharing the love of Christ through action has been our purpose and mission since the beginning, and this often happens in our hospital ministry. After a year of prayerfully seeking out just the right person to work alongside our staff, we are excited to introduce to you our new Hospital Ministry Staff Member, Robert Mapmangu. 

We first met Robert in 2015 while he was working as a contractor on our compound renovation. We were initially drawn to him because of his dependability, hard working nature, and great sense of humor. When we began a daily Bible study with the construction workers, it became very apparent that Robert was a believer who knew and loved the Word of God. After several more months discipling and getting to know him and his family, Robert joined our national staff.

Robert and his wife, Ludi, have been married for eleven years and have three children. He brings with him eight years of experience as a welder and carpenter and also helps to maintain our compound. While typically quiet and reserved, Robert becomes passionately bold when sharing the gospel of Christ and caring for our patients in the hospital. He has been an excellent addition to our staff and is thriving in his training to become a leader in this important ministry.
