Short Term Mission Trips: Medical

23 Jun

IMG_9788Reaching out and touching other cultures is not always easy.  Strolling into a village with no specific purpose or direction raises questions and suspicions.  Being able to offer the local population something tangible, something that they don’t have and yet need is a great way to enter into the lives of those who have the least resources.  Living Word’s medical missions trips do just that.  We gather a group of doctors, nurses, and other medical professionals along with other ministry partners in order to touch them with medical expertise, advise, prescriptions and treatments that aren’t available to them in their village.

Hundreds of people come to these clinics for medical help of all kinds.  We partner with local churches like Fraternidad de Guatemala City Church in Guatemala and the Project Adopt A Village team in Ethiopia to provide care.  The clinics see hundreds of patients each day.  Along with the physical medical care there is also an opportunity to minister to their souls through sharing and praying with them.  It is a rich experience for both the givers and receivers.   If you are looking for a life changing experience, one of our short term medical trips might be a good thing to explore.
