“Wow! That seems like the only appropriate response to these last two weeks,” said Anna Clark, a student at East Texas Baptist University.
Clark, recently returned from a medical mission trip to Brazil with Go Now Mission. As a part of her trip, she and other student missionaries traveled through the Amazon basin to provide medical services to families with an emphasis on pregnant and nursing women.
“I wouldn’t trade a moment of it,” she said, “God did so many amazing things while we were there.”
In total, the team was able to treat more than 300 patients, identifying illnesses such as irregular heartbeats and abdominal aortic aneurysms, while providing basic medical education to help individuals live healthier lives.
Despite the humanitarian trust of the mission trip, all mission trips are geared toward helping individuals and their families connect with Christ. During the trip, Clark remarked, “We lead multiple people to Christ…[and] we shared the gospel with several more.”
As the COVID-19 pandemic continues to wane, collegiate missions ministry partnerships like Go Now Mission are hoping to offer more missions opportunities that will provide opportunities to younger generations of missionaries.
