Mark and Allison Karnes are from Muskegon, Michigan where Mark practiced as an Ob/Gyn for 25 years. The Karnes first served in Africa in 1975-1980 working at a mobile clinic in Cameroon. Africa had always tugged at their hearts since that time, and they returned, coming to Soddo in 2011. The Karnes have five children and many grandchildren. The Karnes serve through Global Outreach.
