Volunteers In Mission
Those chosen attend extensive orientation sessions in preparation for their mission of sharing God's love through word and deed. Their mission trip costs are underwritten in part by the mission endowment earnings, and they are also responsible for presenting reports to the church about their experience.
Past VIM missions have included medical, construction, and/or Vacation Bible School teams to South Africa, Costa Rica, Slovakia, Jamaica, Alaska, Mexico, Nicaragua, and Bolivia, as well as construction missions to the Blackfeet Reservation in Montana and Biloxi, Mississippi.
Several mission teams have been deployed to help with the cleanup in Louisiana and Mississippi following the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina.
Mission Trip to Bolivia Scheduled for 2017
A team is now forming for a medical mission trip to Villa Sinai, Bolivia, June 17-24, 2017. The team needs a dentist, optometrist, physician, four registered nurses, medical support members, and translators. Those who have been on this trip before and plan to go again hope to have a 12-member team formed by December 2016.
The team will work in Villa Sinai at one of five medical clinics in the area to minister to patients as they come, providing medical, dental and eye care. The cost for the trip is $1,000, which includes airfare, food and lodging. Also included in the trip is a 2-night stay at a hotel and a day of “cultural immersion” outside of the mission work.
If you want to be part of this medical mission team or know someone with medical expertise, contact Rochelle Caudill at 918.810.4678. Prayerfully consider joining this team and see how God leads you to share the love of Christ and make a difference in the lives of those you will serve in Bolivia. Stay tuned for future articles with personal accounts from past medical missions.
