Dominican Republic Jul 8 - 16, 2023, Family Trip, w/Dr. George Gonzalez, SR1610
We welcome physicians, dentists, pharmacists, dermatologists, optometrists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, first responders, dental hygienists, dental assistants, physical therapists, occupational therapists, students, servants (non-medical helpers), and a trip photographer/videographer on all of our general medicine and dentistry trips.
Thanks for checking out the July DR mission trip! This is an ideal trip for first-time goers as well as seasoned missionaries alike. Our vision for this team is twofold: 1) To share the love of Christ with the Dominican people through meeting their physical and spiritual needs, and 2) training and equipping medical/dental evangelists to spread the gospel locally, regionally, and to the ends of the earth. Our team normally comprises of half new individuals and half veterans. We also have been blessed to have numerous teens, college-age, and professional students on this trip. This mix has allowed for great intergenerational mentoring each year. This trip is also well-suited for families with children preferably 12 years and above.
After much prayerful consideration by the leadership team, our team will be serving in Santiago to meet the medical/dental needs and share the Gospel of Jesus Christ. We have a new national partner, Project Manaña. They are developing a full-time clinic to help the underserved in a very needy area outside of Santiago and are looking for faith-based mission teams to help extend their ministry outreach to this area and beyond.
Each year our team really has a lot of fun bonding and growing in Christ. We will be staying in a guest house which allows for team bonding and fellowship. Morning devotion and prayer will serve to daily prepare our team for God’s work and help to encourage each other in our faith. We always begin with worship during the morning and evening devotion time. Each day after devotions, the group travels by bus to the clinic site. Our team generally comprises of primary care providers, pediatricians, dermatologists, physiatrists, dentists, PT/OTs, nurses, pharmacists, and logistics, but we welcome others as well! One of the unique experiences that always seem to be life-changing is home visits. The evening devotion time is set up for testimonies and “God sightings” that help us all understand how God is working. These are always especially meaningful times in which we can rejoice together. We hope you will pray about joining the work God has planned for this team!
