About

What We Do

MedSend makes it possible for highly qualified and dedicated Christian healthcare professionals to bring healthcare – and the good news of Jesus’ love – to people in need around the world. MedSend healthcare professionals staff and run mission hospitals and rural clinics and are involved in community health education and training and mentoring Christian caregivers.

How We Do It

For MedSend healthcare professionals from the U.S., we provide grants that remove the obstacle of educational debt and specialized training to equip them for the unique challenges they face. For MedSend Nationals healthcare professionals, our grants help them get advanced medical training, Christian mentoring and leadership training.

Why We Do It

To a world reeling with physical and spiritual suffering, MedSend healthcare professionals bring the best healthcare education and training our society has to offer. And they bring the only true power to change hearts and lives: God’s love.

There are not many times that I feel that you desire medical stories and testimonies of my days in medicine here at Kijabe. In fact, most of you who read our blog are not “medical” at all and I fear you would find these stories boring or confusing. But some stories need to be told, especially when there is nothing “medical” to explain what happened.

“The last several weeks have been full of tragedies, both here in the US and around the world. Death, disease, hatred, anger and frustration seem to fill our lives and can be overwhelming. If I have learned anything from these events, I have learned that we all need to show more love to everyone and begin to live as though we really do care about the people around us. This love must be unconditional and be simply love. You can each be a light in your community but you have to stretch yourselves. I hope that today’s story will be a challenge for you as it was for me.”

I met Dominga over a year ago while I was serving alongside a medical team in La Concha. She was helping Elizabeth, her eldest daughter, and me serve food to the patients and medical team members. She really should have been a patient herself. The paisley scarf enveloped her head where her hair should have been, and she frequently sat down to rest her weary body. Despite the harsh chemo treatments, she smiled and chopped up tomatoes and onions. She seemed happy enough despite the ravaging effects of the cancer and would live for another year, but inwardly she was dead already.

Testimonials

I knew becoming a pediatrician was hard work, and I knew I would incur a lot of debt in order to achieve that goal. However, I also knew that with God, all things are possible, and that He would find a way for me to serve Him in His beautiful world. Now, because you are helping me with this debt, I am able to fulfill my calling sooner than I ever imagined. I cannot tell you how thankful I am for your part in our ministry!

I am officially a MedSend grant recipient.  Do you know what this   means? This means that when you can’t afford to, there may be other people who can afford to lift you up. Due to the hard work that MedSend puts into getting donations, we now don’t have to worry about making my monthly loan payments while we are in Guatemala. The generous people who donate to MedSend have us covered.

Healthcare missions is the key to penetrating difficult to access countries and completing the Great Commission. The greatest barrier for those desiring to serve is educational debt. MedSend has eliminated it, enabling hundreds of missionaries to bring health and the gospel around the world. They are fueling a renaissance in medical missions!

When I first heard of MedSend some years ago, it was the most compelling talk I had ever heard for a nonprofit group.  Here was this doctor telling the audience that God had used his presence in Nigeria to essentially bring an entire tribe of over 80,000 people to the Lord through astonishingly miraculous means.
