Trip Description

In cooperation with local pastors, we will be conducting clinics in local churches to assess a variety of medical needs. Part of the team will work with nationals to take simple patient histories. As patients share about their physical health, we also aim to have conversations about their spiritual health, and the reason for our trip and care for them.

Ministry Support Funds: $1,100/per participant

Ministry support funds cover all local travel, accommodations, meals and supplies used throughout the trip. A predetermined amount of $100, to reserve placement, is submitted when assigned to a team. The balance is submitted 45 days prior to departure. Funds may be submitted by the team participant or by others on their behalf.

Airfare: $1,100-$1,300

Each participant is responsible for purchasing their own airfare, which typically ranges from $1,100 to $1,300. Travel information will be provided by the team leader to ensure everyone on the team arrives at the same time in the country of destination. Comprehensive details to prepare for this trip will be communicated by the team leader once each participant has been accepted and assigned to the team.

The Need

Almost one-third of the entire population of Argentina live in the greater Buenos Aires area. The worsening of the country’s economic situation has deeply affected many Argentines both economically and culturally. And though most Argentines consider themselves Christians, religious practice and affinity is declining, particularly among the younger generation.

Over the past 30 years, with a vision for evangelism, discipleship and multiplication, ABWE missionaries have helped plant 22 churches in Argentina. In Buenos Aires, ABWE missionaries invest in a Pastor Training Center where future Argentinian pastors and missionaries have opportunities for leadership development and theological education. There are abundant opportunities for people who are passionate about sharing the love of Christ through evangelism, teaching, training and church planting in Argentina.

The Impact

Use your medical skills on the mission field to heal people physically and spiritually. In our nearly 90 years of ministry, we have seen compassionate medical care soften hearts to hear the message of the gospel, changing lives for today and eternity. But we can't do this without you.
