How It All Started… | Mercy Tech Mission
mercytechmission.com, 11 May 2014 [cached]
MTM Director Rick Cogbill talking with staff of Mercy Air Director and Founder: Mercy Tech Mission was founded by Rick Cogbill, a licensed automotive technician and former shop owner. Rick is also an author and humor columnist. His monthly column The Car Side has appeared in national automotive trade journals across Canada since 1998. He currently writes for Canadian Technician magazine, as well as Tire Review, a publication for tire shops in the United States.
Rick Cogbill Turkana District, Kenya Africa; the early years: Rick and his wife Nan first went to Africa in 1985, where they spent two years working in Northwest Kenya among the Turkana tribe. Rick oversaw all vehicle maintenance and repair for an ongoing building and relief project operated by Africa Inland Mission (AIM).
During that time Rick taught his local staff the basics of mechanical repair and maintenance. He experienced first-hand the impact of helping local workers learn a trade, and how such training increased their ability to provide for themselves and their families.
Upon returning to Canada, Rick opened his own automotive repair business, which he operated for many years before selling it in 2000 to focus on his writing career.
Back to Africa: In the spring of 2010, Rick returned to Africa, this time to Mozambique, where he spent a month working at ASAM, a Canadian missionary organization based near Chimoio. (You can read about Rick's trip in this blog)
