Join an OCMC Mission Team 2017

Medical Professionals Needed for Mission Teams
by Sara Staff (3/22/2017)

The Mission Field is in need of medical professionals to use their skills to administer healthcare on a short-term mission team.

The Mission Field needs medical professionals to volunteer on short-term mission teams this summer! Administering health care to people who do not normally have access to treatment is such an essential part of OCMC missions, and your expertise could make a huge impact on suffering people around the world. Won’t you consider volunteering this year to alleviate their suffering?

Lori Kotuza participated on an OCMC health care mission team to Guatemala in 2015 and reflects, “Preparing for a mission takes open-mindedness, a willingness to accept new challenges despite language and cultural barriers, but most importantly, a deep commitment to treat patients and offer them medical care and health education in regions where health services are scarce…This short medical mission was an inspiration to me to continue serving on mission teams in the future. What I did not expect was that a small village, with a strong community spirit, trusted our team, all complete strangers from another country, and let us medically treat them and their children as well as the elderly.”
OCMC medical mission teams provide opportunities for personal growth and give you the opportunity to use your expertise to show Christ’s love by serving others.
Medical professionals are needed for two teams to Guatemala and one team to Indonesia. The following is a list of open healthcare teams:
