We have two talented women to highlight today who will be facilitating our Pre-Conference Workshop #2 together – Sarah Jennings and Kathy Marquardt. Their topic is “Ultrasound for Medical Missions”.
Sarah Jennings, BS, RDMS, RVT has been a sonographer for 15+ years and is registered in Abdominal, Breast, Neurosonography and Vascular. She has been a member of her college Alumni Board of Directors for the last 12 years and will step down as immediate past president next year. The majority of her diagnostic scanning career was spent as a travel sonographer working in multiple facilities throughout the United States. In 2011, she worked through a non-profit organization in Bamenda, Cameroon, Africa to teach ultrasound to selected local nurses. In 2014, she began working as a Clinical Applications Specialist with FujiFilm SonoSite where she enjoys combining her love of teaching, travel and helping others succeed with ultrasound.
Born in the northeast, Kathy Marquardt, RDMS, RVT attended a radiologic technology program in Lancaster, PA. Soon after graduation she moved to a small town south of Houston, and Texas has become her permanent home. While Kathy was working as a Radiologic Technologist, she was offered an opportunity to train as a sonographer, which opened doors to scan in various environments—hospitals, clinics, offices, as a contract sonographer. After a period of teaching ultrasound continuing education and skills classes, she went to work in the commercial field with SonoSite where she learned Point of Care Ultrasound and has been awarded Clinical Applications Specialist of the Year 3 times.

He currently serves as the Texas Regional Director of the Perspectives Study Program. David has led more than a dozen trips to Central America doing evangelism, medical and orphan care, firefighter training and church planting. He has helped his church and others develop missionary training and equipping programs and he has spoken to thousands of students and adults across the US and Central America about God’s global mission with a great passion to mobilize the body of Christ to strategic engagement in God’s global purpose.
David and his wife, Jennifer live in the Dallas area. Jen serves with East-West Ministries as a part of their South Asia team and together they run Missio Dei Collaborative Workspace, which unites different ministries and churches to work together to complete the Great Commission.
David Jackett will be facilitating our Pre-Conference Workshop #1 titled “Made for More: Finding Your Place is God’s Global Purpose” where he will be speaking on the Perspectives Study Program.
Happy Valentine’s Day! Today, we want to show some love to Todd and Sue Price, both speakers at the 2018 M3 Conference. They are a powerhouse couple in the medical field and we are sure you will be blessed by them and what they have to share with us this year.

One of our big sponsors this year is Houston’s own MBF – Medical Benevolence Foundation. We are so honored and grateful for their belief in M3 and partnering with us!
MBF has been a non-profit for over 50 years. They serve as a partner to individuals and churches in the US that have a passion for spreading the gospel through medical missions in developing countries. MBF “strives for medical excellence by promoting health through the physical presence of medical mission co-workers, education, disease prevention, and curative care, for those in impoverished communities suffering from acute and chronic illness. They seek to bring up-to-date, evidence-based health care practices and technology as we support the appropriate, affordable, sustainable and quality services of our partners.” They serve as a link to help build the capacity of churches in the US to provide healthcare ministries to churches in need. This creates more personal support systems as these churches continually help provide the healthcare needs for the communities abroad.
MBF has many opportunities for anyone to become involved including going on a mission trip or becoming an ambassador. They will be an exhibitor at the M3 Conference as well so we hope you take the time and get to know them a little better! Click here to register now. See you February 23 & 24!
