Mission:

Del Corazon de Jesucristo, El Catey, Dominican Republic

We are traveling to the island of Hispaniola and hope you will join us! We will be joining Dr. Steve and Julie Dorsey, Directors of Del Corazon de JesuCristo in the country of the Dominican Republic.

Our primary focus is serving alongside Dr. Leslie, who is a Dominican physician on staff with Del Corazon, to provide medical/spiritual care through multiple mobile medical clinics to people living in remote communities who do not have access to nearby healthcare or the funds to purchase much needed medications.

Mobile medical clinics help to open doors for national Evangelists who are called to reach people for Christ in a specific community. Illnesses are treated by the medications that are dispensed by our team, but the long-lasting treatment for all of life’s challenges lies in knowing Jesus. Mobile medical camps enhance the ministry of local Evangelists and help draw attention to the Great Physician and His healing.

We are seeking Physicians, Nurses, Pharmacists, NPs, PAs, Physical Therapists, and other medical professionals who are seeking an opportunity to be used according to their skills and abilities on this trip. We are also in need of non-medical trip participants who will be taught how to serve in the following areas:

Triage (taking blood pressures, temps, and blood sugars. They will also determine the chief complaint of the patient).

Health Education Station (teach a simple health education lesson along with sharing a brief devotion with a group of 10 – 15 patients at a time).

Pharmacy Station (prepare prescribed medications to be dispensed to the patient).

Interpreters will be an integral part of our team!

The team will also have an opportunity to engage in other Del Corazon ministries while on this trip.

Accommodations are on the mission compound with comfortable dorm-style sleeping, showers, and flush toilets. Meals are prepared by Julie Dorsey and are so delicious, you won’t want to leave!
