Eastern Europe Mar 7 - 16, 2019, SR1418
This trip is now closed. Please explore our other trip opportunities at www.ghotrips.org.
We welcome physicians, dentists, pharmacists, dermatologists, optometrists, ophthalmologists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, first responders, dental hygienists, dental assistants, physical/occupational therapists, students, servants (non-medical helpers), and a trip photographer/videographer on all of our general medicine and dentistry trips.
God has opened wide the door for a return medical/dental mission to Ukr*ine. GHO has already been deeply invested in this region, with a recurring team to Mold*va, which is surrounded by Ukra*ne on its northern, eastern and southern borders. We are blessed to partner with a wonderful church planter in Ukrai*e, with whom I have had the honor to serve in M*ldova. He has dual citizenship in U*raine, where he was born, and in the US, where he moved during his youth. He has a passion for reaching his native country with the Good News of the Gospel and has been doing so through his ministry involving church planting and pastor support to help grow existing churches. He has dreamed of having a GHO mission come to his country to help him and now is it happening!
We will be serving in a small town in the more central part of the country, 1000 kilometers from the eastern border. We will be supporting a local pastor of a non-denominational church as he tries to reach his flock with Christ's love, redemption and salvation in a culture steeped in Orthodoxy with little or no understanding of a loving God. The plan for now, just as on other missions in the region, is for team members and their respective translators to live in the homes of the villagers where we will serve. This allows for an incredible opportunity to truly experience the life and culture of the region. Our partner's ministry is actively involved in many small villages with small group homes, orphanage and prison ministries as well as youth and family ministries. The need is great, our partner is ready, and God is preparing the way no matter the conditions!
Do you feel God moving you to reach out to the least, last and lost? Are you ready to take the next leap of faith and go further outside your comfort zone as you are obedient to this movement of God's spirit in you? If you are not quite sure about God or Jesus Christ, or this whole "God" stuff, are you willing to open your heart and mind and find out more? Are you willing to serve and love others and in doing so put in action Christ's love? Are you willing to be the "tears of Jesus", when sometimes all else fails and there is nothing else we can do but hold them, comfort them, cry with them and pray for them? If so, this mission is for you!
We will spend much time together as a team and with our most special translators that each team member will be living with 24/7. You will grow to love that person. I am ready, are you?
