The Position

On this trip, we will be doing simple clinics (no shots nor procedures) at locations connected to a local church ministry, helping to expand their standing and contacts in that community. We will be treating all comers for free, giving testimony through multiple opportunities of prayer with patients.

Team Members Needed

  • 4 to 5 team members total
  • At least 2 doctors
  • At least 1 nurse
  • Other team member do not need to be medical professionals

Trip Description

Each weekday, we will travel to a clinic location where we will be joined by a national team that has quietly seen the Good News spread to scores of communities. This region is very open to prayer, so we seek to pray with patients as often as possible. A key component of each clinic is taking patient histories, which is done in partnership with bilingual nationals, and which offers opportunities for prayer. At the end of each day, we take time to debrief and pray for the next day's activities.

Ministry Support Funds: $1,000/per participant

Each trip has its own “Ministry Support” account at ABWE, to which each participant contributes. The funds cover all local travel, accommodations, meals and supplies used during the trip. The first $100 must be submitted when a person completes application and is assigned to the team, which reserves that person’s placement on the team. The balance needs to be submitted by 45 days prior to departure. These funds may be submitted by the team participant or by others on their behalf.

Instructions for securing a visa will be sent by the team leader.

Airfare: $1,100-$1,500

Participants 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 or within a short time of each other. Comprehensive details to prepare for this trip will be communicated by the team leader once you are assigned to the team.

The Need

South Asia includes about 45 percent of Asia's population, or more than 25 percent of the world's population. Ninety-five percent of the world's least evangelized people live in this area of the world and most of the world's governments that oppose Christianity are also located there. This region includes Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Brunei and Sri Lanka, and is home to a variety of people groups, 300 of which are unreached. More than 1.5 billion people live in this region, but only a small percent of the population claim to know Jesus. The rest practice Islam, Hinduism, or Buddhism.

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.
