Liberia Medical Missions Team Trip

Home 9 Opportunities 9 Liberia Medical Missions Team Trip
January 18-29, 2024
$3,800 - $5,000

 

Trip Description

Our medical team will be staying in a guesthouse in the city of Gbarnga and working with national pastors and medical care people. Each day we will help at the local medical outreach clinic or travel to local villages to hold remote medical clinics with missionary pastors. A key component of each clinic is taking patient histories, which is done in partnership with bilingual nationals. After taking the histories, we will treat all the patients for free before they are given the opportunity to hear the Gospel from a missionary pastor. Nearly all patients are happy to listen. At the end of each day, we take time to debrief and pray for the next day’s activities.

(This covers online training, background check, etc.) The balance needs to be submitted 45 days prior to departure. These funds may be submitted by the team participant or by others on their behalf.

Airfare: Approximate cost: $1,250-$2,000

Participants are responsible for purchasing your own airfare. Tickets should not be purchased until information is provided to each team member by the team leader to ensure that your ticket can be coordinated so the entire team arrives on the same flight.

Each trip has varying miscellaneous expenses based on trip requirements (eg. passport [$110], visa [$175], optional additional travel insurance, travel vaccines and anti-malaria medicine, Covid testing (in Liberia) [$155], etc.) These requirements will be outlined in an email once assigned to the team.

THE NEED

The country was founded with the help of the USA in the early 1800’s by freed slaves from America. It grew to become one of the most prosperous countries in Africa, but then 2 military coups and war ravaged the country for 15 years. From 1989-2003 the people of Liberia suffered through brutal conflict and spiritual devastation and is now one of the poorest nations in the world.
