Tina's GSMDM Mission Trip Fund
Organized by: Tina Doan
Dear Family and Friends,
God has blessed me with an awesome opportunity to serve alongside Good Samaritan Medical and Dental Ministry (GSMDM) this summer. As part of my growing desire to join God in serving people in need all over the world, I will be traveling to the northern province of Vietnam for two weeks in July 2016, serving the people of Cao Bang.
GSMDM is a non-profit, Christian organization that is responding to God’s call to bring healing and divine love to the people of Vietnam. The mission is a direct patient care mission, which provides medical, surgical, dental, pharmaceutical, and optometric care to thousands of patients in the rural areas of Vietnam every summer since 2000. Each year, the team treats over 3,000 patients with conditions ranging from respiratory illnesses to children’s heart defects and cleft palates. Our ministry is one of the few organizations that has access to these remote regions of North Vietnam. Over 1,000 healthcare professionals, students, and volunteers have worked with GSMDM in its free summer clinics. For seven months, students fundraise for medical supplies and train for their specific tasks. They work side by side with physicians, surgeons, nurses, pharmacists, optometrists, dentists, and technicians to diagnose and care for patients. If we cannot provide a service, the patients are given money for treatment in Hanoi, Vietnam.
I would like to share my love with others by serving others, especially those in need. By providing love and medical assistance to the people of Vietnam, I will gain a better understanding and appreciation of people from other cultures, religions, and of the needs and conditions faced by those in developing countries.
I would like to ask all of you to lift this mission’s trip up in prayer. Your support through prayers is of vital importance in the success of this trip. Pray for our team as we prepare for the trip. Pray for the people of Cao Bang. I ask that you pray for my involvement in the trip, and that my heart will be especially soft and willing to listen to what God is telling me throughout this trip. Also, please pray for finances. That God will provide for everyone going on this mission to get the amount needed for this trip.
The trip is being funded entirely through donations and by those going on the mission trip. Each participant is asked to cover airplane fares, travel, room/board, and equipment. If you are able to financially assist with this trip, I would be very grateful. I would ask that you directly donate to this account or contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org for any donation pick up/drop offs. I want to thank you once again for being so willing to invest in another person’s life. God has brought me a long way, many times through His servants like you! I thank you for all the love and support you have shown me.
