A Missionary Doctor Shares About His Journey and Work in Medical Missions


Kudjip, Papua New Guinea: Bill and Marsha McCoy answered God’s call to serve as missionaries with the Church of the Nazarene over 25 years ago.  They first served in Swaziland at the Raleigh Fitkin Memorial Hospital and now, for the past 17 years have served at Kudjip Nazarene Hospital in the Highlands of Papua New Guinea.  Bill is a missionary physician who continues to share God’s love with the sick, hurting and suffering each and everyday.

Recently, Bill was asked to share about his journey at the Global Missions Health Conference (GMHC) in Louisville, Kentucky.  The GMHC is the largest medical missions conference in the US with over 2,500 attending each year.  The attendees are made up of students interested in missions, those who have served both short and long term in medical missions, and those who are sending and supporting missionaries on the field.  At the conference, Bill had the opportunity to share about God’s call on his life and the privilege he has had in serving with the future generation of medical missionaries.

The speech was recorded and is available for you to listen as he shares from his heart about his journey to and through medical missions.

  1. I remember those days and can identify with virtually all of it. Am so glad God has used you and Marcia all these years. It’s refreshing to hear you speak. I remember the humour! And how kind you were to me when I made some of my gaffs. After Piggs Peak Clinic, I furloughed, then married a wonderful man, cared for him through his hospice and passing, and am now at Casa Robles where I volunteer for what I can – here and at church (Pasadena First). My greetings to Marcia. I never had the privilege of getting to know the children well.
    With Appreciation fr all you are still doing! Kathryn
