Trip Description

Moldova is an old Soviet Satellite country steeped in that atheistic doctrine, but also dotted with pockets of strong Eastern Orthodox followers. Our medical team will be working with a national missionary in the north of that country. He has multiple church plants, some of which need strengthening with a medical evangelistic campaign. He is also seeking to open new areas to the Gospel with our compassionate ministry.

After our arrival, we will drive about 100 miles north of the capital. We’ll go to church on Sunday and prepare pharmacy materials for the week ahead. Each weekday, we will travel to a clinic location where we will be joined by a national team. A key component of each clinic is taking patient histories, which is done in partnership with bilingual nationals. This time of conversation with patients often gives us an opportunity to share the gospel. At the end of each day, we take time to debrief and pray for the next day’s activities.

Project Fee: $1,000

This fee is used to fund all of our expenses on the field: travel, lodging, food, translators, and medicine. A non-refundable deposit fee of $100 (which goes toward the project fee total) is payable to ABWE once you are assigned to a team. The balance of the project fee is due to ABWE 30 days prior to departure.

Airfare

In addition, you are responsible for purchasing your own airfare. Information will be provided to each team member by the team leader to ensure that your ticket can be coordinated so the entire team arrives on the same flight. Comprehensive details to prepare for this trip will be communicated by the team leader once you are assigned to the team.
