Remedy West 2019

October 5, 2019 – October 6, 2019:
Medical missions brings the REMEDY for disease, at home and abroad. And medical missions brings the remedy for sin—Jesus Christ. But in order to do either, medical missions requires healthcare professionals committed to bring the REMEDY – the good news of Jesus. Committed healthcare professionals remain the greatest need in closed countries to provide God’s spiritual and physical remedies. Meanwhile, the world is coming to us, providing daily opportunities to share the gospel with people from most of the 195 countries of the world. Join us at California Baptist University in Riverside, California on October 5-6, 2019 for REMEDY WEST, a CMDA conference focused on bringing God’s remedy to the world via healthcare professionals.
