Mary Chase is GDMMissions' first Associate Missionary. She is a full-time dental hygienist in a dental office and she and her husband Tim live in Orford, N.H. and attend Wentworth Baptist Church. Mary has been keenly interested in foreign missions since she was a child but marriage, raising a family, and a full-time career seemed to put into the background any chance of being a missionary. By God’s providence she sat next to Dr. Jack Mitchell at a Bible conference, saw the toothbrush design on his tie, and found out that he was a “dental missionary.” She never knew there was such a missionary! Her enthusiasm grew more after she was part of a dental evangelism team to Mexico in 2009. She shared Christ with most every patient she saw during five days of dental ministry, stating excitedly, “This is the coolest thing in the world!” Since then she has returned to Mexico several times and has participated in combined dental and medical ministries in the Philippines and Peru. Mary's energy and enthusiasm for sharing the Gospel are contagious on every field evangelism trip. She is willing to go wherever God wants her as a key member of our team.
