About Doug Sprague
Doug Sprague was called in 2015 to serve Bongolo Hospital in a pastoral and construction /maintenance supporting role. Since then, Doug spent two months at Bongolo early in 2016, where he tested God’s call for long-term missionary work. Among other roles, Doug stood in for the maintenance director (so that he and his wife could leave for their first extended vacation in nearly three years). Doug supervised eight African employees in their daily work and led a special project to sort and reorganize the medical supply depot.
As a response to God’s call to be prepared for future service, Doug is immersed in the Christian and Missionary Alliance’s Ministerial Training Program, a lay pastoral licensing program. In addition, Doug is aggressively learning French, Gabon’s national language.
A former software sales executive and an entrepreneur since 2002, Doug is a late-in-life missionary. The story of his call and experiences at Bongolo Hospital is told in Go! A Journey of Surrender and Trust, available at Amazon.com in both Kindle and Paperback editions.
Doug is scheduled to return to Gabon in early 2017 and is actively fundraising to support this trip.
