Mission Trips ~ 2018/19

Guatemala September 15 – 22, 2018

Trip Leaders: Ken Kirkham and Ann Thompson

The Global Hands of Healing team flies to Guatemala City September 15, returns to DFW September 22. In country, we travel daily by bus from Panajachel, Guatemala to four small villages on four consecutive days.  Arranged by local nonprofit mission Salud y Paz, each village prepares a clinic site, often a school or community center. In six to seven hours, we will triage over a hundred patients of all ages. Patients are then seen in up to three areas: medical, dental, and vision; as well as given three month’s supply of vitamins and prescription medications as needed.  There is currently a waitlist; no deposit required. Please let us know if you are interested in being added to the list.

Costa Rica ~ August 4 – 11, 2018

Led by: First Baptist Church Arlington

We are excited to be invited by First Baptist Church Arlington (FBCA) to participate in a medical/dental/vision mission trip to the Cebecar community in Costa Rica.  Specifically FBCA solicited our vision services as this is an area where they do not have the necessary equipment and experience to offer vision services and we are proud to partner with them. There are currently a few remaining slots for this trip. Registration and payment is handled by FBCA.   If you would like additional information or are interested in going on this trip, please go to the following website:


Panama ~ April 27 – May 4, 2019

Team Leader: Not Yet Confirmed

Global Hands of Healing will travel to Ortiga, Panama and conduct general medical, dental, and vision clinic in this small village. Because Ortiga has been previously inaccessible by paved road; they have a critical need for healthcare. Ortiga is located at the border of the  Comarca, land set aside for indigenous people of the Ngobe and Bugle tribes. Patients will walk from miles away to seek treatment.
Personnel needs include physicians,  dentists, nurses, and vision technicians as well as other volunteers.   We are now accepting applications to join this historic mission!  No deposit required now (it will be due later this year and you will be notified then).

We will follow up with you in October and let you know more about the trip and when a $300 non-refundable deposit will be due.
