Jessica Winston


Jessica began working as a Physician Assistant in Family Medicine in 2016 after graduating from the University of Texas Medical Branch. She became a believer at a young age and has had incredible opportunities to travel and see the Lord work on multiple continents. She has always felt the Lord pulling her toward working overseas and moved to Ethiopia in 2019 for an internship in tropical medicine. She has plans to continue working overseas in the fall of 2020 by joining the team at Mukinge Mission Hospital in Zambia. Jessica lives to hear other people's stories and would love to connect with you and hear your own faith journey.

The Good Goodbyes

The issue with maintaining a blog is trying to decide what in the minute is inspiring you enough to write about. As someone who isn’t a writer and not often able to articulate moments very well it is easy to walk through life with pure enjoyment and trying to soak

Nose to the Sunrise

Prior to my leaving for training in Colorado, my grandparents initiated difficult conversations with me regarding the likelihood of them leaving this earth while I was overseas.

The Year of the Stroke: 2018

This is a few weeks late as it is now the first week of February… I have always prided myself on great genes and the health passed on to me from my parents. Little to no heart history and limited cancers throughout our ancestry line typically make it easy to
