Drs. Brown who served at Chogoria

We are very grateful to have met Drs. Richard and Judith Brown, who served at Chogoria Hospital for three years, ending around 2001.  He is a physician and she is a cultural anthropologist.
We  were introduced by Jim Wood, Senior Pastor of First Presbyterian Church in Norfolk.

The Browns are wonderful saints who served on the mission field for 38 years.  They shared an abundance of advice with us.  They described the ministry at the hospital, how to avoid social and cultural missteps, how to navigate the countryside, what to expect about daily life, what sort of car to buy, and so much more.

Dr. Brown (Richard) helped set up the Casualty (ER) at the hospital and started the HIV program there.

We are honored to follow in their footsteps.
