Anthony & Katie Thompson
Anthony and Katie met in 2011 during the beginning of an overseas partnership; between a mission’s organization Tony was working for and a feeding program that Katie had helped develop in Cambodia through Water of Life. Even before marriage, they dreamed of spending time with their kids on the mission field as full time missionaries. Currently, Katie is a cardiothoracic nurse practitioner at Loma Linda Children’s Hospital pediatric cardiac ICU. However, her passion is neonatal ICU where she spent 11 years of her career. Tony is the Director of Facilities at Water of Life Community Church where he has become the jack of all trades over the last 9 years.
At a birthday party the Thompson’s and another family serving at the Hope Matters organization had the pleasure of meeting. After a short time sharing with one another about their love of missions they ended their conversation with “I hope to see you again, in KENYA”. And so began the dream of partnering with Hope Matters International. Tony will serve in building, facilities, and construction projects at the hospital. Katie will put her passion for neonatal ICU to use educating pediatric nursing staff and developing a small resuscitation and NICU service.
