Global Health Outreach is a short-term international missions program dedicated to providing healthcare while spreading the gospel by sending medical, dental, vision and surgical teams around the world. Each year, we send 40 to 50 teams around the world to countries including El Salvador, East Africa, India, the Pacific, Central Asia, Nicaragua, the Middle East and many others. Through these trips, we disciple participants, grow national churches, share the gospel and provide care to the poor and needy.

We partner with those who are focused on ministering to unreached people groups in challenging areas around the world, where we share our Savior’s love in deed. Many teams also serve the needy in the Americas, where open evangelism and discipleship in both word and deed is possible. Consider participating on a Global Health Outreach short-term mission trip; you can find a listing of our trips at www.ghotrips.org and additional information at www.cmda.org/gho.

Christian Eye Network has ongoing mission opportunities at christianeye.net.



Vision Outreach International is assisting Jeff Becraft, OD in organizing a faith-based mission trip to Haiti July 12-19, 2019. We are in need of one or two more optometrists to complete the team. If you are interested, please contact Jeff Becraft, OD at jmbecraft@yahoo.com or call him at 269-876-9039.

We will be providing optical eye care in two locations in Haiti. Both locations will be tied to schools so we will primarily be providing eye care for students. Our objective is to show the love of Christ through eye care and share the love of Christ through Gospel presentations. We will be working with the local organizations for follow up/discipleship.
