CCBC has had a number of members join trips to Nicaragua and El Salvador over the past 5 years. This is a great opportunity for anyone being called to “taste” short-term international missions in a safe, well organized and friendly environment, with local friends and family.
We are looking for medical volunteers, those willing to help with children or help with the logistical needs of the team for the next trip. For more information, please contact Richard Brown.
Global Health Outreach (GHO) is the division of the Christian Medical and Dental Association dedicated to providing both medical care and spiritual healing to people of third world countries around the globe through short-term mission trips. These medical mission trips, staffed by doctors, dentists, pharmacists, nurses and logistical support volunteers, are assisted by a team of local Christian interpreters to minister to the needs of people in impoverished areas. The patients hear the gospel message at every step in the process; by the local pastors when they apply for care through a local church, by the nurses during triage, when receiving treatment by the doctors and dentists and during special church services held during the week. In addition, their children get to participate in a vacation Bible school program while the patient is waiting for treatment.
