Carrie Hann

Career Missionary since 2015, serving the Palawano people of the Philippines.

My Mom taught my sisters and me to enjoy reading, and we read many missions stories as we were growing up. When I was 16 years old I went on a mission trip to Ecuador. After that, I knew God was calling me to long-term missions.
After I graduated from nursing school, I went to Southern Adventist University to study music. My plan was to get my bachelor’s degree in music and at the same time get experience working as a nurse and then see where in the mission field God led me. During my first year at Southern I found out about their student-mission program and felt God calling me to apply. He led me here to Palawan where my dream of mission nursing came true. After four and a half years, I returned to the States for part of a year to finish my fundraising and attend AFM summer training to make the transition to career missionary.
The clinic here in the mountains of Palawan provides medical care to the Palawano tribe, filling a huge need while at the same time providing a way to plant seeds and show God’s power as He heals their diseases. It is so much fun to work with God and let Him lead and to be able to see the miracles He performs in and through the lives of the Palawano people.

Frontier Stories

Losing Andyilu

I don’t know why Andyilu had to die, but I know that God can bring something good out of it. Please pray for this family. Pray that God will break down the barriers that are holding them back from Him.

Nurayda’s Crisis

As Nurayda gasped for every breath, we tried various treatments and made phone calls for advice. But nothing we tried seemed to be doing any good. We continued to pray with her and ask God to heal her.

Birthing Superstitions

Please pray that the witchdoctor and his family will come to know the truth so that they can put away their fears and superstitions.

God’s Timing is Best

We were resting a little easier now that two of the three ladies had delivered. Only Nurayda was left.

Please also pray that as we minister to the Palawano people through medical care, many can be drawn to Jesus.
