🇦🇲⚕Armenia Medical Missions: 10th Annual AMAA Medical Mission Trip 06/21/18 – 07/1/18
Ministry of Love and Service
Led by Dr. Al and Sue Phillips, the AMAA Medical Mission team is in the final stages of preparing for their 10th annual trip to Armenia.
This year, in cooperation with the Evangelical Church of Armenia, two teams made up of Armenian and non-Armenian speaking doctors, dentists, pharmacists, nurses and support staff, will travel to AMAA Mission Centers in the North and South of Armenia: Vanadzor, Stepanavan and Sisian.
Patients hear of the arrival of the Medical Mission team weeks earlier via various forms of media. Last year approximately 850 patients were bused in from the local villages and the dentists treated 250 patients. Each patient passes through the clinic to have his/her vital signs collected and urine testing completed. If necessary, EKGs are performed. From there, patients are interviewed by nurses and medical students in triage and then examined by the team of physicians. Prescriptions are given for a variety of conditions, primarily hypertension, diabetes and heart disease. Patients are counseled on their medications by the pharmacists and given enough for one year.
The mission of this ministry is “To share the Gospel of Jesus Christ by serving the physical needs of our Armenian brothers and sisters. With the help and guidance of the Holy Spirit, we are called to serve those in need of God’s love through medical service, health education, and the preaching of the Gospel.”
The Mission Trip is a combination of work and fun. When not working in the clinic, the team tours important sites around Armenia. After spending so much time and working closely together, the team becomes like a new family.
Pray for their service and dedication as they share Christ’s love through their work. Stay connected with their blog when the trip commences.
