On behalf of the Santiago Partnership, we want to officially introduce to you Annalea Egging. Although she has been here 6 months already, we have held off on the introductions because she has been studying Spanish primarily and getting settled in to life here in Ecuador.
Annalea is a Covenant first-term missionary who is and will be working with the Santiago Partnership in the area of medicine. She has already helped in many capacities and has jumped right in with both feet. She started last week working in the clinic alongside our physicians. Annalea has been a Labor and Delivery nurse for 12 years and she also specializes in perinatal loss. She has a variety of gifts that compliment us and the team here in Ecuador.
Kim and Annalea were in nursing school together at North Park University and she went to Covenant Bible college in Ecuador (2000) and was a dean of women at CBC in 2007. She has visited Ecuador many other times and has also served in Africa before coming to serve as a missionary in Ecuador.
We are SO excited to welcome Annalea and are anticipating what God is going to do in and through her. She is currently working in the clinic in women’s health in collaboration with our physicians. She will also continue working with our medical caravans and will be adding more educational pieces to the clinic and community at large surrounding the clinic. She will also be helping organize a women’s week in September in collaboration with Ecuadorian partners to serve Kichwa women holistically.
Welcome Annalea! We’re so excited to have you! https://www.santiagopartnership.org/about/
