Nicaragua - Twice a year the Healing Hands medical mission team serves people throughout this Central American country. The team is sponsored by the United Methodist Church but is made up of Christians from a variety of denominations. Members needed are doctors, nurses, physician assistants, and many helpers with a willingness to serve and ability to be flexible. Possible jobs for non medical team members are; taking and printing family pictures, assisting the national dentist, doing activities with the children, controlling the crowds, fitting eye glasses, counting pills and being a “gofer”. It is not necessary to speak Spanish or the Miskito language. The trips are in March and November for 11 days. The cost to each member is about $1500.
The team usually serves in very remote villages. The accommodations may be a hotel or a tent. There may be electricity, a shower, and toilet with a seat – or a flashlight, a bucket of cold water to pour over your head and an outhouse. The people we serve are always very gracious and thankful for our service. Local pastors and counselors give our patients an opportunity to learn more about the love of God and the Christ we serve. Contact the church office if you are called by the Holy Spirit to join a team.
Current Mission Trip
This May we are going to Cran Hill for our service project. We are looking for volunteers to help in whatever areas are needed. As the date nears, we will have a better idea on what projects we will be doing. Please consider joining us on this service project that may include cleaning, painting, repair work, construction, and of course, cooking!
Prayer shawls are hand crafted by members of CoS and gifted to those who are in need of special healing.
