Dan and Rosanne Thompson
Dan and Rosanne Thompson are the directors of NW District Medical Teams, which began 5 years ago. Working with Mary Schell, Outreach Pastor for NW Church in Federal Way, we fulfilled a long-term dream to begin a ministry for medical evangelism in the Northwest District. Rosanne has been a nurse for 42 years and a Family Practice Nurse Practitioner for 20. Dan has been a Family Physician for 44 years. Our interest in medical missions began over 20 years ago. We experienced the pleasure of God on our first medical mission as we found a way to treat the whole person—body, soul and spirit; to see Jesus’ power to save, heal and deliver, while delivering medical care. In 2006 we left our practice to get additional mission training through Youth With A Mission (YWAM) Discipleship Training School. This further encouraged our desire to reach the nations for Jesus.
We have been a part of over 40 short-term medical-evangelism teams and have led over 20 of these teams. Our great desire is to reach the unreached for Jesus; to take the two-handed gospel—the compassion of medicine and the life changing power of the Gospel of Jesus Christ—to people who have not yet heard. In addition we are thrilled to see team members experience the excitement of leading people to Jesus and seeing His power to heal and deliver as He works through them.
