Where We Go

 

So many cultures, so many languages, so many customs, but each country below has one commonality. Each is full of people hungry for love, hungry for God. Look through the countries listed below and pray about joining us. We are looking for volunteers with a flexible attitude and a willingness to serve. Medical Missions Outreach is proud to partner with both medical and non-medical volunteers to accomplish our goal of introducing others to the Great Physician.

As a medical professional, you have committed your life to provide care to the hurting. You understand what it means to look a patient in the eye, listen to his complaint, and provide him with relief. And as a Christian, you understand what it means to share God’s love with a hurting soul. But why limit yourself to your community? This is an opportunity to minister to thousands of aching bodies and hearts all around the world.

When signing up for a trip, please make sure to start an online account before filling out the application form.

Lastly, don’t forget to read the ‘Know Before You Go’ section before applying.

Coming Soon! Surgical Teams to minister at the newly constructed Rearick Surgical Center in El Progreso, Honduras.

If none of these trips will work for you, please send us your contact information and we will add you to our trip notification list. Our 2021 Trip Calendar is scheduled to be released on June 1, 2020. Please stay in touch so that you’ll be notified and have first choice of next year’s trips before they fill up!

I learned many valuable lessons and it was all through the people we ministered to: their thankfulness for Tylenol or vitamins and their patience because they were willing to wait in lines for hours in high humidity, heat, and rain.
