Seeking the renewal of all things through Jesus Christ

Scott and Jennifer Myhre

The Myhres are missionary physicians who joined Serge (then World Harvest Mission) in 1991 and have worked in East Africa since 1993. Seventeen of those years were spent in Bundibugyo, Uganda. Most recently they served for five years in Kijabe, Kenya.

Their roles are twofold. First, they serve as East Africa Area Directors for Serge, supervising teams in Uganda, Kenya, South Sudan, and Burundi. Second, they serve as doctors to provide compassionate, excellent health care and training in the name of Jesus, reaching the vulnerable throughout East Africa. Their four children Luke (’93), Caleb (’95), Julia (’96), and Jack (’98) call Africa home, though they all are now in university (Caleb, Julia, and Jack) or medical school (Luke) in the U.S.

For more than two decades they have sought to follow the example of Jesus in neglected areas of Africa by healing, teaching, and preaching the good news of the Kingdom, and drawing others alongside them to do the same. Scott and Jennifer have combined curative and preventive care by working in hospitals, participating in health management, and promoting community health (focused in the areas of HIV prevention and nutrition). They have invested heavily in the training of emerging indigenous leaders, and have conducted research to better understand and address health issues in their areas. Both consider it a joy to minister to Jesus by caring for the least (in the world’s eyes) of His children, and by prayerfully supporting the expansion of the Kingdom through relationships with Serge teams.
