Olivia grew up in Congo in a missionary family. Brian is from the Philippines. They met during Olivia’s midwifery training in the Philippines and that relationship grew. They were married in April 2022 in Congo in the chapel of Pioneer Christian Hospital.
Brian serves on the maintenance team of PCH. There are many ways he helps keep things running smoothly on the large hospital compound. Checking the solar electrical system, keeping the generator functioning well, assisting in the wood shop, and keeping the grounds clean and well-kept for the patients and their families. Brian also loves to host and is often the initiator of fun and fellowship amongst missionary and local team members.
Olivia serves as a midwife in the hospital maternity department. She seeks to walk alongside women during their pregnancies to support them and share the love of Christ. Providing women with a safe place to give birth and to receive timely interventions can greatly reduce maternal and neonatal mortality in an area where women and babies die from preventable pregnancy-related complications. Midwives have the unique privilege of serving women and their babies during a very important time in their lives, and Olivia desires to show each of her patients that they are valued and loved by God.
The Dungogs’ desire is to expand the impact of Pioneer Christian Hospital in the community for the Kingdom of God, while building discipling relationships. They are valuable members to the hospital’s ministry.”
