Guatemala May 2013 Medical, Dental, and Physical Therapy Mission – Applications Due March 3rd

2013 | by Clint | Category: Global,Mission Opportunity,Rabinal Achi

2007 marked our first ventures into Community Health Evangelism (CHE) alongside Dr. Jaime Jacobo Pineda and his wive Jannette.  It was an opportunity to expand our support of the ministry of God’s Word to the Achi that started three years earlier when DSC adopted the Rabinal Achi, and began supporting Carol and Rodrigo Barrera‘s efforts to finish translating the New Testament into Rabinal Achi.

Since 2007, we have sent eight DSC Medical and/or Dental teams to the field in order to support the Pinedas CHE ministry, and to prayerfully ask God to open doors for the gospel and for God’s Word in the Achi communities.

Last year we added Physical Therapy to the mix, and God continued to bless our efforts as we partner with the Achi to reach the Achi.

Watch here as DSC Physical Therapists, wife, and mother Koren Saiers describes her impressions from the trip:


This year we are planning to return with medical, dental and physical therapy personnel once again.  The dates are set for May 24-June 2.  The cost of the trip is $1200 per person, and their are ways to raise support for this mission.
