Periodically throughout the year there will be opportunities to engage the lost world for Christ through Missions Trips. These short-term projects are designed to help believers learn how to share Christ through words and service. As these opportunities become available, pray to see how God would involve you. It will truly change your life and those you encounter as well.
BMDMI - Baptist Medical & Dental Missions International
More than Medicine, Baptist Medical & Dental Mission International is making life better for thousands in Honduras and Nicaragua because Jesus Christ calls us to serve the poor and give them hope in his name. With billions living in poverty, we can't stand by and hope it will get better on its own. We Christians are called to serve personally or support those that do.
Many In Central America lack the basics of food, shelter, medical/dental care, and education. Our Mission works to meet those needs through...
Short-term Medical/Dental Mission Teams - Children's Homes for abused, abandoned and orphaned children - Schools - Adult Vocational Training Programs - And other benevolent programs. BMDMI, truly More than Medicine.
But we as Christians are called to do more - we are called to share the Gospel. Therefore, all of our ministries meet physical needs and offer people the opportunity to have a growing, personal relationship with Christ. Our teams, children's home, schools and other programs provide powerful ways to share God's message. Where life is a daily struggle, fellowship with Christ is the hope of life.
There are many ways we serve our community and beyond. We hope you will also consider how the Lord can use you each day in reference to these great ministries.
