Environmental & Development Consultant/Public Health Specialist, Madagascar

Serving in partnership with the Church of Jesus Christ in Madagascar (FJKM), Dan and Elizabeth Turk work to improve the lives of the Malagasy people. Elizabeth trains village health workers, helps communities develop safe drinking water sources, and educates church leaders and youth about HIV and AIDS prevention. Dan has helped the FJKM develop an extensive fruit tree program that greatly improves food security and nutrition in a country where poverty indices are plummeting. Training in fruit tree propagation and agriculture is provided to all FJKM pastors so that they can provide communities with the resources to address serious country-wide malnutrition. Dan also works in environmental education, helping people live in harmony with God’s creation. Home presbytery: Central Florida/Western
