Dominican Republic July 8- 16/2017, SR1311


Opportunity Overview

This trip is now closed.  Please check out our otther trip opportunities at

We welcome physicians, dentists, pharmacists, optometrists, physican assistants, nurse practitioners, nurses, first responders, dental hygienists, dental assistants, physical/occupation therapists, students, and logistics (non-medical helpers) on all of our general medicine and dentistry trips.

Each year we go to a different location in order to evangelize this country for Christ. The Oasis Church in Santo Domingo, DR has been an outstanding partner of GHO and our team. They typically have about 75 of their church members join us for the entire week as our interpreters and helpers. They are wonderful to work with and really model servant hood.

Each year our team really has a lot of fun bonding and growing in Christ. This is a relatively safe trip for families with decent amenities. We usually stay in a hotel and have American-like food for breakfast and supper. The lunch is served by the Oasis Church at the clinic site. 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 travel by bus to the clinic site which is generally in a small school where the children are on summer recess. 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. Devotions are led by various members of the team. This trip is especially suited for family members. Every year we rejoice as we witness the strengthening of each family as they serve. We hope you will pray about joining the work God has planned for this team!
