THE STORY:

There is one reason to volunteer your service on a medical missions team. To help the poor who would otherwise have no access to the resources of modern medicine. The needs of the impoverished vary but generally include underlying medical, surgical and dental problems. Thus our teams consist of one or more of these specialties with an accompanying pharmacy. Teams do not consist solely of health professionals. Many different volunteers from a variety of backgrounds assist each team with a multitude of tasks required for a successful mission. Although our missions seek to serve the poor with their physical needs we also seek to serve their spiritual needs. We believe healing the sick as healthcare professionals is an expression of God’s love in a tangible way. We also believe that Jesus died for all humanity and this is the ultimate expression of God’s love for all people, everywhere. Therefore each team seeks to serve the poor on each mission trip through the provision of modern medicine as well as sharing the Gospel of Jesus Christ. What good would it be to bring healing to the body and neglect the soul? Our mission is ministry to both, “that some may be saved.”
