John and Penny Alden have served at Hospital Loma de Luz since 2004, arriving several months before the hospital became a full-scale, full-time in-patient hospital in 2005. Penny, an RN, acted as Director of Inpatient Nursing for the first 3 years, and then took on the responsibility of staff education. John, a nurse practitioner and midwife, works in two area health departments and also in the hospital clinic doing women’s health. They are actively involved in a “church plant” in the Honduran countryside, where John tackled the job of general contractor for the construction of the church building.
The Aldens hail from Tulsa, OK; they have four grown children (Kate, Sarah, Jacob and Daniel) and four grandchildren.
