Medical Missions Outreach

Medical mission trips are among some of the hardest to fill. Because many doctors and dentists have hectic schedules finding those willing to take a few weeks off of their practice can be tough. However, even in their rush and bustle lifestyle, those who answer to a higher calling gather in the midst of the noise to find His voice in the quiet.

From those who cannot afford medical care locally to those who have no access to medications and surgeries in third world countries, medical mission trips are an essential part of the body of Christ. From those who speak another language to those who speak your own . . . but somehow march to a different drummer . . . we reach out our hands to be HIS hands and do the work of our Father.

If you are a medical worker or even a child-life and patient expert, the following is a list of medical mission trips that might be of interest to you.
