Dr. Joseph & Rebecca Harvey--Serving in the Republic of Congo

We are Dr. Joseph and Rebecca Harvey, medical missionaries with Global Outreach Mission in the Republic of Congo. We are serving our Lord Jesus Christ here in this central African nation with the goal of bringing God’s hope and healing to the people of Congo.

Our primary work is in establishing the Pioneer Christian Hospital (a.k.a. “H.E.L.P.,” the acronym for its local French name, “Hôpital Evangélique ‘Le Pionnier’”) as a Christ-centered refuge in the northern city of Impfondo, offering health in this life and hope for eternal life to a region full of people who otherwise have little or no opportunity of receiving either. After five years of planning and hard work, the hospital opened on January 16, 2006! During the two extraordinary weeks following opening, the hospital was full of “firsts:” its first normal baby delivery, its first Aka Pygmy patient, its first 30 surgical cases, its first death (a 6 month old baby), and its first 1,000 outpatients. “I waited patiently for the LORD; and he inclined unto me, and heard my cry.” Psalm 40:1

We invite you to join with us in this ministry, as God leads you through prayer, financial support, and volunteer service with us.
