Jack and Mary McDonald

Serving In: Africa
Ministry: International Student Ministries

SAMS Role: Missionary (Mary) & Associate Missionary (Jack)

Home Church: The River Anglican Church, Blacksburg, VA

Starting Year with SAMS: 2002

Calling to Ministry: Mary and Jack were both in professional careers as a veterinarian and international banker, respectively. They learned of a position in Bolivia that was looking for a vet and banker in the same office. After much prayer, counsel, and a couple of vision trips with their children, the McDonalds felt the Lord was calling them there. They served with SAMS in Bolivia for 3 years. Upon return to the USA, they saw opportunities to use their professions overseas to empower subsistence farmers with spiritual integration in Uganda. Mary has gone back and forth to Uganda and does revolving livestock loans with her Gospel Goats project. In Roanoke, VA, Mary started the Anglican International Student Network. She seeks to get more Anglicans involved in ministry to international students.

Vision for Ministry: The McDonald's vision is to reach the world for Christ. The Lord has brought the world to America's doorstep through international students. The McDonalds also have a vision to continue ministry in East Africa and elsewhere as the Lord leads.

Personal Points of Interest: Mary enjoys horseback riding. Jack and Mary like to hike and kayak.

Favorite Bible Verse: Isaiah 58:10
