West Africa April 4 - 14, 2019, w/Frank Imbarrato, SR1431

Opportunity Overview

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.

GHO has the privilege of serving for the first time in this area of West Africa. They are in desperate need for the Light of the Gospel. Our GHO partner is a growing church in this area of West Africa which is located in a beautiful ocean-side setting.

In mission partnership and service we pray God’s kingdom will advance through disciple making and leadership development in this thriving local church. The pastor is a national and has a heart for the lost and hurting people of his country.

We will be serving by means of primary care medicine and dental services. As the Lord builds the team, we would also desire to have an eyeglass and children’s ministry.

The anticipated team size will be 32. There is a growing excitement for this ministry opportunity. This is an excellent short term Global Health rotation for students of all backgrounds, including healthcare students and undergraduate college students. It is also an excellent opportunity for families and spouses to serve! 

Please consider joining God’s work in this needy country. Join us as we serve and care for the least, the last, and the lost in Western Africa. Celebrate with us as we honor and glorify God through this wonderful mission opportunity.
