Wes is a graduate of Louisville High School in Louisville, MS and a graduate of Meridian Community College in Meridian MS. He is Board Certified in Radiology, Computed Tomography, Nuclear Medicine and Nuclear Cardiology. Wes has worked for Cardiology Associates of North Mississippi for 15 years. He has also pastored bi-vocationally in west Alabama and east Mississippi for 16 years. Renee is a nurse and because of their medical background, have always believed the Lord would use them in missions one day. After Wes’ first mission trip to Honduras in July of 2013, he knew the Lord had plans for him in this country and for these people. In March of 2014, Wes stepped down as the pastor of Community Baptist Church, where he had served for almost 10 years and in April of 2014, he joined the MDM team to help build and coordinate teams to Honduras. He is looking forward to what the Lord has in store for MDM in the future.
Nik and Dana’s connection to Honduras is a story of how God has connected two families, one generation to the next, to serve the people of Honduras.
Seventeen years ago Nik’s uncle, Dr. Larry Severidt, began traveling to Honduras on medical mission trips. Dr. Severidt now leads residents from Broadlawns Medical Center to Hospital Escuela in Tegucigalpa each year.
Dana’s grandmother, Elizabeth Sundstrom, felt called to purchase an ambulance to bring patients to the hospital from the mountain villages surrounding Gualcinse after hearing about the need from Dana’s aunt, who regularly visited Honduras on mission trips. Elizabeth purchased the ambulance in memory of Dana’s grandfather, Carl Sundstrom.
Today, Nik and Dana are actively involved with MDM through missions, beginning in 2013. Together they bring a rich heritage of sowing seeds of hope and love to the ministry of MDM. They’re excited to partner with a movement of God that has so widely impacted the people of Honduras and them personally.
