Premed student mission trips are an invaluable cog in the wheel of the Christian mission. Whether you want to serve locally or abroad, there truly is no other gift quite like the gift of good health. Unfortunately, this is luxury that not all can afford. What is so spectacular about premed student mission trips is that not only are residents gaining experience in the field they are helping those who otherwise have no access to healthcare live healthier and happier lives.
Somewhere in the midst of this, those we serve also get a spiritual checkup. In caring for those a world away or those a block away we help heal the body while Christ Jesus heals the heart. Though you will never quite understand until you’ve lived it . . . there is nothing else quite as wondrous as witnessing how the Good Doctor can work through those who bring the gift of healing to their doorstep.
‘’But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was upon him, and by his wounds we are healed.’’
Isaiah 53:5 NIV
