Tiffany Riggleman is a registered nurse and computer and database expert, who volunteered Stateside for The Luke Commission six years ago, then, three years later, she came “to stay” in Eswatini. Her personal life has been sweetened and warmed by her engagement to Sam Riggleman. She married Sam, in Eswatini, in January, 2017.
But on the campus and at TLC outreaches, Tiffany is all business. “I’m not always as serious as I look. I have a laid-back side,” she laughs.
“Eswatini is where God called me. It’s where I know I’m supposed to be.” Sam has joined Tiffany in the work here.
Tiffany sees TLC as influencing and assisting all of Eswatini, not just rural patients who are often forgotten. “The investment we have made here is not for ourselves but for Eswatini’s infrastructure, economy and government. TLC is not just doing its own thing. We have built our structure into the country’s structure.”
Admittedly a black-and-white person, Tiffany speaks to partners in North America: “Just because you are not here physically does not mean you are not having an impact on this nation. You are.”
About her Savior Jesus, Tiffany says, “He’s the reason we’re here, I’m here, the reasons for getting up every morning and doing what we do.”
