We welcome physicians, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, physical therapists, and nurses on this trip.
This will be GHO’s sixth trip to serve in this remote island in a spiritually strategic Asia-Pacific nation. God has greatly blessed our ministry and we trust that He is keeping this door of ministry open to accomplish His eternal purposes. We are very excited about returning to minister both medically and spiritually. A detailed Team Orientation Manual is available if interested (see email address below).
The GHO team will fly into an international city in this nation and overnight there before flying together to our destination (the domestic airfare for this additional flight is included in your trip fee). We partner with a local Christian hospital, as well as an indigenous mission, and Healthcare Christian Fellowship (HCF). HCF will select young Christian physicians, dentists and nurses from many different regions of this country to serve with us as our translators. The relationships that develop over the two week trip are rich and last a lifetime.
We will provide free clinics in various locations on this underserved island, all of which are prayerfully chosen by our National Partners. Such clinic sites include the local Christian hospital and more remote sites including health centers, schools and/or churches. We are privileged to work alongside a seasoned team of indigenous spiritual counselors. The Lord has shown our GHO team much favor on many levels in the past and we pray for His continued blessings. The results of our GHO ministry labors continue throughout the year with the efforts of our ministry partners.
We serve at the invitation of the regional governor and provincial health director. We will obtain socio-cultural visas and seek formal temporary licensure. After the clinic days are completed, the health officials have requested that some GHO participants stay and provide two days of training for the local physicians, dentists and nurses. This is optional. Details will be worked out as God builds His team for His glory.
The trip will be demanding physically, professionally and spiritually. This is a blessed opportunity to share the love of Christ, while growing more into the likeness of our Savior. The island is beautiful, our National Partners are extraordinary, the patients are receptive to the gospel, the weather is pleasant, and most importantly the harvest is plentiful! We have seen much fruit thus far, though the work is far from done.
Please prayerfully consider joining this team and serving the least, the last and the lost. If you are interested in obtaining more detailed information, please contact Dr. O’Callaghan by email at [email protected] or phone at 616-886-2817.
