What is geolocation and

what do we use it for?

Geolocation is a tool we use to determine which of our offices services your area by identifying the country from which you are currently accessing our bookstore. If this is not the correct country, just change the location to the country you’re in. For further assistance, contact our office.

A Behind-the-Scenes Look at Medical Missions

Thirty to 40 volunteers, including five to 10 doctors, dentists, some nurses and maybe a chiropractor. This may not seem like a lot when you think of a typical hospital, but this is the workforce behind every medical mission trip taken by Hand of Hope, Joyce Meyer Ministries World Missions. And it's a team you can be a part of. We need your help to reach people all around the world in need of medical care and the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

What happens before the trip?
First, we do our research. Medical outreach coordinators for Joyce Meyer Ministries go on a scouting trip, traveling to potential locations to assess if an area could benefit from a medical clinic. This includes locating a facility that would accommodate hundreds of patients, as well as finding housing where the volunteers and workers could stay each night.

Once it is determined that a location is viable, it is goes through final review and approval by David L. Meyer, CEO of Hand of Hope. We then open up the trip to volunteers—medical and dental professionals who are interested in donating their time to serve people in desperate need of medical and dental care.

All of the medical missions trips are planned and carried out in the utmost excellence, including becoming familiar with all the laws of each country and obtaining all the necessary permits for each country. It is important to us that we go into a country on good terms—complying with all government requests and showing the love of God as we work with them.

We also determine what supplies and medicines will be necessary for the region and work with local people in each area to order the supplies and medicines we will need. We make it our goal to be stocked with everything the medical and dental volunteers will need in order to bring comfort to as many people as possible.

As we get closer to the clinic date:
  • We set up transportation and lodging for all the medical/dental volunteers
  • We communicate with pastors in the area to get the word around and find out the specific needs of the people
  • We arrange for interpreters in each area to assist our team
  • We stock up on Joyce's books written in the language of the region we are visiting so we can send each patient home with encouragement and God's Word

When we get to our destination
Once we arrive and we are ready to treat people, lines of patients have already formed. We are there to provide free medical and dental care and medicines, but we also desire to show how powerful God's touch can be. The patients receive prayer from the volunteers and many accept Jesus as their Lord.

We can typically treat between 3,000 and 4,000 patients each trip. That means that in this upcoming year alone, we have the potential to reach out to almost 48,000 people with medical/dental help and God's love.

Volunteer to serve with us
To touch that many lives, we need your help! We need medical and dental volunteers to make these clinics possible—registered nurses to check vitals, assist the doctors and pray for patients; doctors, dentists and chiropractors who will be able to visit with and diagnose the patients; and pharmacists to make sure all the patients leave with something to help them heal and stay strong.

The need for volunteers is always present. We have many trips coming up this year.

The process before the trip is very important, and we wanted to share with you a small glimpse of how it all works. The experience you could have at the clinic could be something that changes your life forever!
