We’re officially in the swing of the new year, a time when many people reconsider their priorities and challenge themselves to new goals and pursuits. If you’re considering New Year’s resolutions (and even if you aren’t), please consider a New Year’s resolution with a longer-lasting impact than gym memberships or woodworking.

As you know, millions of people, especially in the 10/40 window, are still waiting to hear the saving gospel of Jesus Christ for the first time. Additionally, many have little to no access to modern medical care.

Mission Partners for Christ has several medical mission trips taking place throughout 2024: Sierra Leone from March 2-11, Zimbabwe from July 12-21, and Northwest Africa from October 12-21.

Medical missions are an excellent and tangible way to be the healing hands and feet of Jesus to the unreached.

“Jesus went through all the towns and villages, teaching in their synagogues, proclaiming the good news of the kingdom and healing every disease and sickness.”

– Matthew 9:35

“How beautiful on the mountains are the feet of those who bring good news, who proclaim peace, who bring good tidings, who proclaim salvation, who say to Zion, “Your God reigns!”

-Isaiah 52:7



Sierra Leone: March 2-11

Medical care is not readily available to the people of Sierra Leone, which is located in West Africa. This nation has the world’s third highest infant mortality rate. The average life expectancy is just 56 years. Sierra Leone allows freedom of religion with 78% of the population practicing Islam. Through our compassionate medical care, sharing of the gospel and prayer, we trust God that many will come to know and trust Jesus Christ.

Applications are closed for Sierra Leone, but we need donations to buy the medical supplies we’ll need for the trip. We also need prayer warriors to keep our team members and our work before the throne of God. Please get in touch with us if you would like to join our monthly prayer meeting.

Zimbabwe: July 12-21

The people of Zimbabwe have limited access to medical care and usually cannot afford to pay the price to see a doctor. In the rural areas where we will serve, the population is normally treated by community health workers who have very minimal access to medication and medical supplies. The people, along with the Zimbabwe government, will greatly appreciate your willingness to travel and provide assessment, treatment and health education. Along with free medical care, we will be bringing with us the saving gospel of Jesus, and they are very open to hearing about Christ and receiving prayer.

Applications are still open for Zimbabwe!

What we need:

Health care professionals with at least 2 years’ experience working in the medical field after graduation. This is a requirement of the Zimbabwe licensing board. They will not allow medical or dental students. Non-medical professionals are also needed for the logistics and distribution of the expandable shoes, weighing babies, triaging patients, and keeping children occupied while their parents see a doctor.

Does this sound like a good fit? Start your application today!

Northwest Africa: October 12-21 

Three quarters of this region is desert. Modern day slavery still exists. The life expectancy is only 61 years. We are holding 4 days of medical clinics in 4 different villages. We have identified these 4 villages, because they are unreached with the gospel and the residents are living in deep poverty.

What To Expect:
MPFC, along with our partner Global Hope Network International (GHNI), will be working alongside the communities and their leaders in a coaching process to help them emerge from poverty. We will be addressing: health, sanitation, access to clean safe drinking water, income generation and a primary education for every girl and boy. We will also be providing care through our eyeglass clinic and distributing expandable shoes.

Applications for Northwest Africa are still open. Here are the people we’re praying will apply:

Physicians, dentists, medical students, nurse practitioners, nurses, pharmacists, physician assistants, optometrists, physical/occupational therapists, and non-medical helpers.

Please apply here if God is leading you to join us in this closed nation.

Not Able To Serve In Person? No problem!

There are plenty of ways to make an impact for Christ without leaving home.

Pray: The prayers of the saints are a powerful force that demolishes strongholds and fuels the advancement of the saving gospel of Jesus Christ. Your prayers will help us bring the soul-saving gospel message and lifesaving medical care to some of those who need it the most.

“The prayer of a righteous person is powerful and effective.”
-James 5:16
“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests. With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people.”
-Ephesians 6:18

Donate: Miracles can happen when God’s people share their resources to help the less fortunate! Any contribution the Lord leads you to give will yield dividends, both for the unreached here and in the Kingdom to come. Even a little bit will go a long way.

Your generous gifts will help us purchase supplies, hire translators and vital personnel for our trips, and open many doors for populations in the 10/40 window to hear the gospel. Remember, as a 501c3 non-profit, donations to Medical Partners for Christ are tax-deductible.

“Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal, but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”
-Matthew 6:19-21

“Whoever is generous to the poor lends to the Lord, and he will repay him for his deed.”
-Proverbs 19:17

Share: Get the word out about Medical Partners for Christ and our serving opportunities via social media, word of mouth, and any way you interact with friends and loved ones. Your aunt, nephew, or best friend may be the answer to someone’s prayers! God may be calling a loved one or friend to the mission field, and your social media post may be just the confirmation they’re looking for. 


“Therefore, go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you. And surely, I am with you always, to the very end of the age.”

-Matthew 28:19-20


“For this is what the Lord has commanded us: “‘I have made you a light for the Gentiles, that you may bring salvation to the ends of the earth.'”

-Acts 13:47

Medical mission trips are a unique and fantastic opportunity, both for the participants and for the recipients and there is a way for any and everyone to contribute, whether by attending a medical mission trip or by being a part of the faithful support team back home.

Thank you for your prayers, contributions, and support throughout 2023. We couldn’t have done it without you!

Happy New Year and God be with you all!
