DCF is excited to announce another opportunity for service in Nicaragua. This trip will be in conjunction with Global Health Outreach – an international medical mission organization connected with the Christian Medical and Dental Association.
Dr. Bill Sasser will serve as the team leader. The application will be coordinated directly through GHO and subject to their policies and guidelines.
From the website:
Nicaragua is the largest country in Central America bordered by Honduras and Costa Rica as well as the Caribbean and Pacific oceans while holding a very dear place in our hearts. It is a beautiful country with amazing people who are such a joy to serve. It is also among the poorest countries in Central America. COVID-19 has taken its toll as well, but things have stabilized and GHO considers it safe to return.
Our team gets the special opportunity to once again join Nicaragua GHO director Rolando Castillo and his team, as we will be taking a team to an area of great need. We will also partner with several local churches and pastors to train and support them. The local church is the key to success for any GHO team, as they are the people that remain in the area after we depart, and they will be discipling those we have ministered to. Our combined team will provide top-notch medical and dental care through our clinic and some home visits and will be sharing the Good News of the Gospel of Jesus Christ as we provide that care. Additionally, we will have a simple eye clinic that provides reading glasses. We hope to have a physical therapy team and we will have a community health training opportunity to empower local believers by teaching them to take blood pressures, make rehydration salts and learn basic wound and burn care, etc.
We are going to offer them free healthcare. But more importantly, through a kind word, a warm smile, a loving touch, and our health care, they will receive the message of a loving Savior in Jesus Christ. We will be offering them the Greatest News and the very reason He sent His only son! Are you willing to join this team, to be His hands and feet to broken, impoverished, hurting people?
