Joel Photo WebJoel White is FOT’s new communications intern – serving on-site at Tenwek Hospital for the next two years to help us make essential connections with visiting U.S. physicians and to gather the news and information we need to keep FOT supporters informed about what’s happening at Tenwek today.

Joel is a 2015 graduate of Ouachita Baptist University in Arkansas. He majored in business administration with a management emphasis. During his college years, Joel worked summers in a range of hospital, retail, and recreational settings. He was an accomplished football player and held leadership positions with the Fellowship of Christian Athletes. Joel’s international mission experience includes assignments in Japan, Guatemala, and Mexico.

Through these diverse experiences, Joel acquired and strengthened his skills in leadership and public speaking and is a diligent worker who desires to serve the Kingdom of God. His career vision is to enter the field of hospital administration and enable physicians to focus on what they do best – treating the sick both physically and spiritually – by effectively administering the financial and operational aspects of a hospital.

Joel arrived at Tenwek and September and reports, “As the Friends of Tenwek intern I have the opportunity to learn and grow in many areas in my life. Though I have many desires and objectives while I am here, I hope to leave Tenwek truthfully saying that I loved the people with all of my heart every day: ‘I will most gladly spend and be spent for your souls.’ (2 Corinthians 12:15). I hope to serve the Tenwek family passionately so God may work in the lives of the community surrounding us. I am honored to work alongside these God-fearing men and women and to be the successor of several great and successful FOT interns.”
