John Brody, Dr. Christine Brody's husband, brings his support to his family and the team. He credits his enthusiasm to his belief in God.
"I believe the passion she (my wife) has in her heart for this opportunity comes from the spirit of God," he said. "If it is important to God, it is important to me."
John received his degree in construction management from San Luis Obispo. He has also been involved in Baja Christian Missions and building houses in Tijuana, Mexico.
"There is need all over the planet... Almost paralyzing if you think about it too long," John said.
"I am completely here to serve," he added. "To do what ever is necessary to glorify God."
"My wife has a passion for medicine and I have supported her from the beginning of her career," John said.
He said wants the trip to be a learning experience for his three kids.
"I hope that I can show my three children how amazing their God is, and how richly He has blessed them," he said.
In his own words, why he wants to go to Nicaragua:
"(To see) how huge my God is. He will heal the sick through the gifts he has given each team member... that will be obvious. But He will show Himself in other ways to each of us in a very profound way. I will have my eyes wide open to see these revealings in myself and the team members around me as it is a beautiful thing to see more of God's character. I want to be used by Jesus to reveal His amazing grace to others... it is humbling that He would even consider using me for His purpose."
