“Do not be anxious about anything, but in everything, by prayer and petition, with thanksgiving, present your requests to God.” Philippians 4:6



 

Please pray with us!

As healthcare professionals on the mission field, MedSend grant recipients are dedicated to improving and saving lives.

Yet, since they serve in such underserved areas of the world, these care providers also have to deal with the pain of losing patients... patients who might have been saved if more resources were available.

Prayer is critical to MedSend healthcare professionals for so many reasons, beyond dealing with the loss of a patient.

Serving on the mission field has its own  trials and struggle.  This is why prayer is such a critical type of support for these missionaries.

It helps to have as many people praying as possible. Please join us!

Why This Matters

The situation is dire on a global scale. According to the World Health Organization (W.H.O.), the world needs seven million more healthcare professionals to meet for a minimum standard of patient care worldwide. 57 countries are at a crisis point, with fewer than 2.3 nurses, doctors and other medical personnel for every 1,000 people – too few to deliver even the most basic level of care. And the gap between number of patients and number of healthcare professionals is poised only to grow.

What MedSend is Doing About It

  • Bringing Hope to the World

    Mobilizing Healthcare Workers to Serve Around the World (freeing them up and removing the greatest barrier)

  • Giving Hope to the People in the Field

    Providing Medical Training and Discipleship while Caring and Encouraging the Person

Healthcare remains the only form of access as a Christian witness in many countries.

Your gift helps activate the movement of God's people to the field. Will you join us in ensuring that eager Christ-following health professionals are able to serve the Lord through global healthcare missions?
