Starting hospitals and clinics and addressing health and wellness needs has long been a platform for the gospel globally.  Today, there is the opportunity for mid-term workers to join these efforts!  Being a Goer through the medical track will give you the opportunity to use your medical training and background to bring physical healing to the sick and to help prevent hurt and disease.  Being Christ’s hands and feet in the GoCorps placements will not be easy. These are hard situations with lots of pain and hurt. Here’s a few ideas of what some of your experiences may be like:

  • Spend the morning walking house to house (or hut to hut) telling families about AIDS/HIV prevention and treatment options
  • Do your rotation at the local hospital or clinic where you work
  • Pray with and for your patients and share hope in Christ with them and their families
  • Prayer, worship and crying out to God to heal the wounds of the people that God’s called you to share his love with

The Yanesha people live in over 40 communities in the central Amazon Jungle of Peru. Although these tribal peoples were reached with the gospel by Wycliffe in the 60s, the spiritual awakening has since faded, and the churches are small and elderly. The Yanesha have suffered from many health problems historically that continue to plague them today, including turberculosis, parasites, and many other illnesses related to water. Preventative medicine is not readily practice, and the Peruvian medical system, however bureaucratic, has still created some dependencies.

Masatepe is a community of roughly 45,000 people located in the Central Pacific region of Nicaragua. Situated in the heart of a region known as the "Meseta," this area is believed to be the most densely populated region of the Country outside of the capital. Accordingly, unemployment rates are high. Nicaragua is the 2nd poorest country in the Western Hemisphere and Masatepe has its fair share of poverty, especially in rural areas.

This team serves in a city in China of 8 million people. China's one-child policy, the pressure to provide for his/her parents in their old age, and a worldview that doesn't see every life as valuable has led to an orphan crisis, especially for those born with special needs. Furthermore, families that do keep their children with disabilities have very little services to care for and assist them.

This region is one of beautiful beaches, mountains, and rich biodiversity. Usually areas like this are full of tourists and tourism businesses. Yet, due to the history and current political situation of the region, it can sometimes still feel "undiscovered" by the outside world.
