What the Mission Trip Will Be Like
We are looking for one or two more short-term doctors to join our team.The clinic provides primary health care services including antenatal, maternity, pediatric and adult medical care. There is a small ward and a specialist HIV clinic. The doctors share responsibility for the ward and care for all the patients out-of-hours. They are allocated to either the general outpatient clinic or the HIV clinic for routine clinic duties. The doctors are also responsible for teaching, maintaining clinical standards in the clinic and developing relationships with other healthcare providers in the Gambia. We are looking for a short-term doctor to work alongside us, to enable the long-termers to complete language study and to take their leave.
Our vision is to use the contact we have with patients to identify those who have an interest in the gospel or who would like us to pray with them as they seek God’s help and healing for their medical problems.
Relation of Opportunity to National Church and/or Long-term Goals
WEC has been in the Gambia since the 1950’s.
We work closely with the Gambian church and church members take opportunities to preach to patients, pray with them and show the Jesus film on the ward. There would be opportunities for a short-term doctor to develop relationships with our mostly Muslim staff and the young people in the village who speak good English and to be involved in discipleship activities within the church.
