Trip is full except for Physicians, Physician Assistants, and Nurse Practitioners. 

This trip is going 7 hours into the bush north of Nairobi with plans to care for the Samburu people. They are a semi-nomadic people group who are a subtribe of the Maasai. On this mission you will truly experience the heart of Africa and its people.
 
The religion of the Samburu is traditionally Nkai which believes in one true God, thought to reside in the mountains where we will be serving. Many still adhere to this but some have now adopted Christianity and Islamic faiths. We will have opportunity to share of our Risen Savior, Jesus Christ while also learning to express our faith across cultures to reach those with this unique culture and worldview.
 
They have little to no access to healthcare. They may walk for a day to the nearest local medical clinic, often to find that they do not have the needed medicine. We are planning to do a Public Health training and water filter distribution along with our clinic. This team will be very busy!
 
This will be a first-time mission trip to this area for GHO. Would you prayerfully consider whether God is calling you to join us as we reach to make the name of Jesus Christ known?
