Saint Luke Society Completes 4-Day Medical Mission Trip in One of Colombia’s Most Disadvantaged Regions

Saint Luke Society (SLS), an evangelical medical ministry affiliated with World Olivet Assembly that is made up of professional doctors and nurses, completed a 4-day medical mission trip to La Guajira, Colombia. The team of volunteers from SLS Latin America coordinated the trip to one of the poorest regions of Colombia together with Jubilee Foundation Canada and Mission Life Colombia.

With a team of three doctors, two nurses and a dentist, SLS treated a total of 500 children in five different communities who came with various illnesses, wounds, and dental care needs.

Grateful about the opportunity to provide free care to people in need, the SLS team reflected on the urgency of their calling of sharing the gospel with more medical professionals who could then participate in such efforts where they could use their gifts and skills to serve the disadvantaged.

SLS's commission is to train and to raise medical professionals by equipping them with the truth and love of Jesus Christ. It fulfills its commission by following the example of the very work of Jesus, which consist of teaching, preaching, and healing found in the book of Matthew.

The annual medical mission trips called 'Healing Hands' focus on disadvantaged people who cannot otherwise access medical help for various reasons, be it limited access to medical services or poor medical infrastructure. St. Luke Society brings them the care that they need and serves them with the heart of Jesus.
