During our 8-day trip, our 21 member Team will work just outside of LaChorrera, Panama, about a one-hour drive west of Panama City. We will provide medical care to about 700 Panamanians of all ages, and dental care to about 50. Our efforts are somewhat unique in that six Team members are from Peninsula Covenant Church (PCC), 15 are from Menlo Park Presbyterian Church (MPPC), and members of Medical Mission International (MMI) headquartered in Canada, and Christ For The City International (CFCI) based in Latin America will join us. While our professional Team (4 M.D.s, 5 R.N.’s, 3 R.Ph.’s, a dentist and a dental assistant, plus 7 helpers) cares for the physical needs of our patients, MMI and CFCI staff, in cooperation with local Panamanian Church members (trained in evangelism by CFCI), will share the gospel of Jesus Christ with everyone who comes to our clinic.
