Experience the world of medical missions. Get valuable cross-cultural medical experience under the leadership and guidance of local practitioners.
March 12-20, 2016.
Bethel students will travel to Central America to serve communities in the Corozal villages in northern Belize: Para Eso, Xibe, San Narciso, and Ranchito.
Our team will work alongside Dr. Rodas (a local doctor and pastor) and his church members to set up health clinics. This beautiful experience gives our health sciences students a chance to experience medical missions first hand.
The most unique aspect of the trip is the close relationship between practical medical relief and the ministry of a local church body. Bi-vocational pastors such as Dr. Rodas are rare. Witnessing this blend of skills provides a transformational experience for Bethel students.
In addition to medical missions, we also present creative programs such as kids ministry and hygiene education.
Our Ministry Partner
Praying Pelican Missions is a leader in short-term missions to Belize that specializes in a number of areas including medical missions.
Who Should Participate
This trip is reserved for students in the health sciences (pre-med, nursing, and other health sciences) who have junior or senior standing.
Cross-cultural ministry experience and proficiency in the Spanish language are helpful and valued in the team selection process. Since we don't spend all of our time working in medical missions, we look for students with an ability to be energetic, spontaneous, and adaptable.
Interviews are conducted in October and November of every year for the following spring.
Teams for Spring 2016 are set and have begun preparing for the trip. If you are interested in participating in Spring 2017, please check back in Fall 2016 and apply early.
