KAZAKHSTAN HAS EXCITING NEWS
Operation Mercy Kazakhstan has exciting news, as we say a warm welcome to Roger Beadle, the new Country Director. Rodger comes from a Computer / Business background with 11 years’ experience working on software development and computer systems that interact with the people systems for whom they were created. We are very pleased to have Rodger now working amongst us.
“Over the past four years, we as a family have taken specific steps to transition from the business world into the world where people are the main aim. As a family we relocated to the USA where I completed graduate studies. Through these studies I have grown a deep love for the vulnerable and developed a greater understanding of the importance of the protection and inclusion of the poor and marginalised.
Coming to a new place to serve with Operation Mercy is very exciting. Though there are many daunting challenges in understanding the cultural context and what is already happening here in Kazakhstan, there seem to be many exciting opportunities to serve the Kazakh people.”
