Biography

Charlie and Elizabeth Sands have spent most of their adult life in Asia. In 1970 they, along with their two young daughters ages two and four and their 2-month-old son, felt called of God and left the United States and sailed for Korea. Following language and culture study at Yonsei University in Seoul in the early 1970s, they spent twenty-five years at the Wallace Memorial Baptist Hospital (where their 4th child was born) in Pusan, Korea. In the 1990s they felt God’s call to northeast China and served on the faculty of the Yanbian University Medical College in Yanji --- Elizabeth teaching English and Charlie teaching pharmacology and research design. While there they began having a medical ministry in the Rajin area of northeast North Korea. From 2013-2019 they were on the faculty of the Division of Medical Sciences, Pyongyang University of Science and Technology in Pyongyang, North Korea.
