Maranatha Weeks has pursued overseas missions since the start of her nursing career in 2013. With a Bachelors of Science and Nursing (BSN) and a Diploma in Tropical Nursing she has aided in the aftermath of disasters in Ecuador, Haiti, Bangladesh and during the 2017 war for Mosul, Iraq, with Samaritan's Purse.
