Guatemala

Several members of the Oldham Lane Church of Christ participate in medical evengelism trips to Guatemala in July and November. On these trips our members join with other Christians from various Churches of Christ throughout the United States to form a medical/dental team organized by Health Talents International whose goal is to proclaim the Gospel of Jesus Christ through teaching and healing ministries.

These teams work in cooperation with local congregations of the Churches of Christ in and around the city of Chichicastenango, GUA. Clinics are most often held in church buildings with the assistance of local church members. The model is to "partner" with and "empower" local churches, providing them with opportunities for them to minister to their communities.

The teams work with a full time North American physician missionary located in Chichicastenango, along with native Christian physicians and dentists and Guatemalan support personnel while on these trips. Opportunities to participate in these trips exist for physicians, dentists, PA, FNP, nurses, pharmacists, dental hygienists, dental assistants, and non-medical people who can provide auxiliary services, such as teaching children's Bible lessons, etc.
