It was on a 2005 mission’s trip with their sending church to Uganda, East Africa that Alan realized how the tool of medicine could be used to reach souls with the Gospel of Christ. God’s call had come and he had a decision to make: stay and practice medicine for the wealthy and privileged in Washington DC, or go and minister to the underprivileged and spiritually poor of Uganda. The decision was without difficulty.
Sent out from Temple Baptist Church in Herndon, VA Alan and Elena began deputation in October 2008. Their goals upon reaching the field include: evangelizing the lost, discipleship, planting Independent Baptist churches, and to extend the outreach of the local church through the medical ministry.
Thank you for taking time to visit this site. Please pray for the Sutphen family as they continue on deputation to the country of Uganda, East Africa.
