Description

This book looks at how medical mission events, a popular mission ministry in the Philippines, can be utilized effectively as a starting point for long-term church-based outreach for community transformation. The book notes the problems of medical mission events, especially in the areas of long-term effectivity, efficiency, and appropriateness, and suggests ways that appropriate partnership between local churches and outside NGOs can overcome some of these potential problems. While the research done was based on medical mission work in the Philippines, it is believed that the findings apply well in many Two-Thirds World nations. Additionally, the underlying principles can be applied to a number of short-term ministry projects.show more
