About Us


"The Lord is my strength and my shield; 
in Him my heart trusts, and I am helped; my heart exults, 
and with my song I give thanks to Him." 
Psalm 28:7 ESV

Thank you for your love, support, and prayers. Amahoro! 

Welcome to La Joie des John, which is French for 

The Joy of the Johns!


It's been a decade since the Lord first called Ted into the field of medicine for the purpose of bringing medical help to those who would otherwise have no access. He has continued to fill and refill Ted's vision bucket throughout medical school and residency, where he trained to be a general surgeon. And He has called us as a family, Ted, Eunice, Toby, and Amos, to serve Him overseas in Kibuye, Burundi (East Africa).

Ted will use his skills as a general surgeon and work alongside a mentor missionary general surgeon for two years with The Post-Residency Program. Together, they will provide surgical care to the people of Burundi and thousands of others who will travel near and far. Eunice will continue to care for Toby and Amos while also being sensitive to other ways the Lord may want to use her on the field. Our desire is to serve as career missionaries overseas and share the hope of the Gospel wherever the Lord leads us.

We invite you to be a part of our journey, whether through prayer and/or financial support, and look forward to partnering with you!

Many blessings,
Ted and Eunice
