Honduras Medical Mission Trip
Organized by: Amanda Wood
EVENT DATE Jul 09, 2016
We are excited to share this mission opportunity with you all! We are planning a summer medical mission trip to Santa Rosa de Copán, Honduras on July 9-16, 2016. We will be partnering with a local mission group called Mission UpReach (www.missionupreach.com).
Our one-week trip will focus on joining with the Honduran people to help them reach out to the neighboring villages and towns in a way they cannot do on their own. Furthermore, our prayer is that through our efforts, doors will be open for the local church to go into these same villages with the gospel of Christ.
Here’s a little more detail:
• Our team will be participating in helping with a medical clinic that will see over 300 people per day. Many of these people lack even the most basic medical care. Each individual has a consultation with a medical doctor and leaves with a 30 day supply of vitamins and other medicines prescribed by the attending physician, including but not limited to antibiotics, parasite medicine, analgesics, and topical ointments. Any serious illnesses are referred to the nearest hospital or health clinic.
• Our team will also be providing an eyeglass ministry to hundreds of people who have had no vision care whatsoever and providing them with glasses, greatly enhancing their quality of life.
• Last but certainly not least, we hope to be a light to the community and an encouragement to the local church family.
We are so thrilled about the opportunities and experiences that lie ahead and hope that you see the value in what we will accomplish. As you can imagine, a trip like this requires support from a number of people. We need your help. First and foremost, we need your prayers. Prayer is the fuel that will allow us to be successful as we follow God's leading in our ministry in Honduras. Without prayer, little, or nothing will happen. After that, we ask that you prayerfully consider supporting us financially.
