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, as we care for them both spiritually and physically.
Team Members Needed
Individuals with or without a medical background. For those with a medical skill: any Primary Care Provider, NPs, PAs, RNs, LPNs, CNAs, PT, Dietitian, EMT, Paramedic, Chiropractor are welcome.
Ministry Support Funds: $1,400 per participant
Ministry support funds cover all local travel, accommodations, meals, and medical supplies used throughout the trip. Instructions on how to submit the funds and the due date will be emailed to the team. These funds may be submitted by the team participant or by others on their behalf.
Airfare: Estimated $1,000
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 30 minutes of team leader. Comprehensive details to prepare for this trip will be communicated by the team leader once you are assigned to the team.
Miscellaneous Expenses: $100-$200
All first-time healthcare team trip participants must complete specific online training ($75) and each participant must purchase team specific travel/emergency insurance ($25) through ABWE.

We will be working with poor Jamaicans in the Montego Bay area. Local churches have revival meetings, but seldom see many persons accept Christ. Our trip last year saw more than 30 persons come to know the Lord and many more were interested. All of these patients will be followed up by local churches.
Use your medical skills on the mission field to heal people physically and spiritually. We partner with local pastors and have seen compassionate medical care soften hearts to hear the message of the gospel, changing lives for today and eternity. But we cannot do it without you. Pray and ask God to provide the funds so you can participate!
