Susan Thiel’s nursing background is over 30 yrs of Maternal/Child nursing. Having a Masters in Nursing Education and have taught nursing for over 8 yrs. Women and children have always been my passion. After many years of working in this field I felt a need to help women and children in a less privileged area. This is what brought me to Kenya. God gave me the gift of nursing and I felt him leading me to the underserved. I have been to Kenya 6 times and have had the pleasure and privilege of working with Mercy’s Light Family. My role is helping with education to the local clinic, education with the teen Moms and staff at MLF, partnering with physicians, pastors, nurses and health care needs both at the center and in the villages. Beyond the gift of nursing I am able to love and support our girls at MLF and share God’s word with them in hope to give them faith and courage.
