Many of you have heard about our upcoming missions trip to somewhere in Central America… sometime this coming summer.
Well, our plans are finalized now, so we’re excited to share them with you!
Here’s the quick version:
- What / Where – Medical Missions / Global Health Outreach (GHO, CMDA’s short-term missions arm) trip to San Salvador, El Salvador. This is an established trip, and we have the privilege of joining a work that’s already been effective in helping our church partners plant 12 new churches in about 5 years!
- When – June 17-25, 2017
- Who – healthcare students (medicine, dentistry, pharmacy, physical therapy, and optometry) residents, fellows & professionals (primary care physicians: Family Practice, Pediatric, OB/GYN, Internal Medicine) dentists, optometrists, pharmacists, and physical therapists)
- Why – To serve ‘the least of these’; to help our church partners gain access to new communities, where they hope to plant new churches; to experience God’s transforming power; to bring all that God does back to Philly, further strengthening our community so that it can continue to bless others.
You can learn more, and apply, right here if you’d like. Of course I’m available to answer any questions you might have.
I will speak to one possible obstacle – the cost – up front. While the $2,410 cost for the week may seem high, the trips are top-notch and done very well. It includes airfare, administrative support, the cost of medicines we’ll bring and many other items. I’m happy to coach you through raising the support, and people are typically very eager to contribute towards clear needs like this one. Don’t let raising support scare you away, OK?
