Dear Potential Participant,
Thank you for your interest in Project Compassion. We are pleased that you are considering working with us in providing medical care to needy people throughout the world by volunteering in our short-term missions program.
We organize teams of 12-50 people comprised of medical professionals, interpreters and laypeople. Medical needs and conditions vary from place to place and we therefore reserve the right to determine the composition and size of each team.
To expedite the processing of your application, it is important that we receive all necessary information, forms and copies of licenses. An application fee of $50 must be submitted with the Project Compassion application, and is not part of the trip donation requirement.
We are grateful for your willingness to participate with Project Compassion for we realize that it takes commitment and often many sacrifices. It is our prayer that The Lord will bless you personally and spiritually as you serve Him out of a loving heart.
May God richly bless you.
Project Compassion is a Christ centered organization whose primary purpose is to share God’s love by ministering to the physical and spiritual needs of people who have little access to any medical care.
Project Compassion has an international concern with a primary focus on evangelism. This is accomplished by working alongside a local church or missionary who has invited PC to be a part of their outreach to the community.
Through professional medical personnel, operating in current standards of care, we provide exams, diagnosis and treatment of disease in an effort to “heal the sick that are there and tell them the Kingdom of God is near.” (Luke 10:9, 10) This will be accomplished through short-term medical mission team trips. It will allow team members to use their talents and abilities in a foreign mission endeavor, exposing them to the opportunities in missions. The experience provides a potentially life changing encounter that may deepen the mission awareness and encourage further participation.
For national medical professionals it will provide a source of encouragement to participate in ministry combining medicine and evangelism. Wherever possible, every effort to provide an opportunity to share information and skills in medicine within the team structure will be provided.
Statement of Belief
Project Compassion is an interfaith medical missions organization dedicated to advancing the gospel of Jesus Christ. We hold to the central teachings of scripture, that the Bible is the inspired word of God. We believe in the Triune God, Father, Son and Holy Spirit. We believe that Jesus is the Son of God and came to earth as God incarnate. He suffered and died on the cross, and after three days, he rose from the dead. He ascended into heaven and is seated at the right hand of the Father. We believe that Jesus will come again to judge the living and the dead, and that the Holy Spirit was given at Pentecost and lives in our hearts today when we accept Him as our Lord and Savior.
Although Project Compassion is nondenominational, we are united in our core beliefs. Our main focus is to advance the Gospel by assisting local churches and missionaries in their work and to help those in need. By focusing on our commonality and lovingly tolerating our differences, we show the love of Jesus Christ as we provide an opportunity for physical, emotional, and spiritual healing. Since the teams are made up of individuals from many denominational backgrounds, it is not the intent of Project Compassion to promote or discourage personal doctrinal beliefs. We ask everyone to be considerate and understanding of others’ personal beliefs and practices, particularly in different cultures and countries.
