OCMC News - Doctors and Medical Personnel Needed for OCMC Health Care Missions in 2014

OCMC News - Doctors and Medical Personnel Needed for OCMC Health Care Missions in 2014
Help care for the physical and spiritual needs of people in Tanzania in Kenya by serving on an OCMC Medical Mission Team in 2014.

The Orthodox Christian Mission Center (OCMC) will be offering numerous Health Care Mission Team opportunities in 2014 to East Africa.

OCMC is seeking doctors and medical personnel to participate on these teams and minister to the physical and spiritual needs of people in East Africa. While health care has improved over the last two decades, many people do not have access to basic medical care and are reliant on nongovernmental agencies to cover health care gaps in the government system.

By participating on a health care team, team members will help treat various common illnesses found in other parts of the world - malaria, parasites, and other tropical diseases. The Orthodox Church in East Africa has asked for individuals to bring physical relief as an outpouring of Christian love and to offer a living witness of Christ as our Lord and Savior through healing.

Two Health Care Mission Teams to Tanzania (February 3 – February 14 and May 12 – May 23) have been invited to work alongside the staff from the Orthodox Health Clinic (Health Centre Ufufuo) in western Tanzania. This clinic works to offer quality health care to individuals in the greater Bukoba region. The Team will assist with staff training through peer-to-peer time and provide medical consultation and health education to patients. A team to northern Kenya (June 17 – July 1) has been invited to serve in Lokichaar as part of a holistic outreach that includes construction, teaching, and health care.

These teams will offer both tangible and spiritual benefits in places where health care access is limited. For more information on how to apply, please visit our Web site, www.ocmc.org or e-mail us at teams@ocmc.org.

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.
