OCMC News - Medical Professionals Needed for Mission Teams

OCMC News - Medical Professionals Needed for Mission Teams
The Mission Field is in need of medical professionals to use their skills to administer healthcare on a short-term mission team.

The Mission Field needs medical professionals to volunteer on short-term mission teams this summer! Administering health care to people who do not normally have access to treatment is such an essential part of OCMC missions, and your expertise could make a huge impact on suffering people around the world. Won’t you consider volunteering this year to alleviate their suffering?

Lori Kotuza participated on an OCMC health care mission team to Guatemala in 2015 and reflects, “Preparing for a mission takes open-mindedness, a willingness to accept new challenges despite language and cultural barriers, but most importantly, a deep commitment to treat patients and offer them medical care and health education in regions where health services are scarce...This short medical mission was an inspiration to me to continue serving on mission teams in the future. What I did not expect was that a small village, with a strong community spirit, trusted our team, all complete strangers from another country, and let us medically treat them and their children as well as the elderly.”

OCMC medical mission teams provide opportunities for personal growth and give you the opportunity to use your expertise to show Christ’s love by serving others.

Medical professionals are needed for two teams to Guatemala and one team to Indonesia. The following is a list of open healthcare teams:

Provide health care and health education in the predominately Mayan region of northern Guatemala. Show the love of Christ by sharing your talents as a health care provider in Aguacate at the Fr. Andres Giron Clinic.

Prayer for Missions

God of truth and love: Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, Hear our prayer for those who do not know You. That they may come to a saving knowledge of the truth, and that Your Name may be praised among all peoples of the world. Sustain, inspire, and enlighten Your servants who bring them the Gospel. Bring fresh vigor to wavering faith; sustain our faith when it is still fragile. Continually renew missionary zeal in ourselves and in the Church, and raise up new missionaries who will follow You to the ends of the world. Make us witnesses to Your goodness full of love, full of strength, and full of faith for Your glory and the salvation of the entire world. Through the prayers of all the missionary saints, Have mercy on us and save us. Amen.
