Dr. Tom Catena joins Aaron to discuss his experience as a physician in the Nuba Mountains in the Sudan.

Dr. Catena attended Brown University where he earned a degree in Mechanical Engineering, but felt called to missionary work. He attended the Duke University School of Medicine on a U.S. Navy scholarship. After graduating, he completed his Navy commitment and later began missionary work in Africa. He volunteered at St. Mary’s Hospital in Nairobi for six years before helping establish the Mother of Mercy Hospital, where he currently works day and night to help heal the sick and the wounded victims of jihadist war. Dr. Catena typically treats up to 400 patients in a day and is on call 24/7.
