Shaker Medical Missions Sending – East Asia

The national church has an extremely high failure rate of sending missionaries, with little organization, preparation and support. Our team is working to lead through teaching and example the sending of national medical missionaries. The medical training is in parallel with our standard 3-year residency program, but a 4th year of spiritual and cross-cultural training is added. Only national doctors who confess Jesus and have a call to serve another culture are accepted. This project will not only help the team grow more effectively in cross-cultural ministry, but will be a model for other like-minded groups serving in Asia as well as the national body. Potential sending connections exist in Cairo, Cambodia, Lebanon, Iraq, and minority areas of our country.
