  • The Blake Family, a local family of five, plans to enter full-time mission work with SIM (sim.org) in Niger, Africa. Carrie (Valentine) Blake, daughter of Allen and Judy Valentine, grew up in White Rock. She, along with her husband Sean and their teenagers Caitriona, Garrett and Derrick, will be leaving in August for French language training in Paris to prepare them for their mission work in Galmi, Niger.
    The Blakes will join the SIM team at the Galmi Hospital in Niger. Sean will be the IT administrator/consultant for the hospital, working with Nigeriens to find culturally relevant solutions to complex technology issues. Key projects will include clean power, electronic healthcare records and mentoring Nigeriens to move into the role of keeping the IT side of the hospital running.
    According to sim.org, SIM is a community of God’s people who delight to worship him and are passionate about the Gospel, seeking to fulfill the mission of Jesus Christ in the world.
    Carrie will serve as the midwifery tutor for the hospital, with goals of introducing compassion into the childbirth paradigm and reducing mortality through addressing issues like obstructed labor and neonatal resuscitation.
