Mercy Matters: Heartbreak And Hope In The Philippines
Occupational therapist Cornelia Benson is a veteran of MTW medical trips, but a recent experience with an 8-year-old Filipino girl both broke her heart and offered a tangible example of how God works through the church. 

How did you meet Angelica?
I served on a team that cared for her after her leg was amputated. Both she and her mother came to Christ through the local church after her tumor was discovered through an MTW medical team..

How does her story illustrate missions at its best?
As she was dying the local pastor and elders came to pray. We literally encircled her as medical professionals and pastors. It was such a beautiful picture of the way we work in missions -- so many are toiling, watering, and caring.

Advanced Medical Leadership Training
 
Advanced Medical Leadership Training (AMLT)  

Purpose
Requests to MTW for medical outreach worldwide have dramatically increased every year. However, assessing and serving the healthcare needs of an international community can present many challenges, obstacles, and unique opportunities. Advanced Medical Leadership Training (AMLT) is designed to equip you to meet those challenges from the perspective of both short-term and career medical ministry.
 
Curriculum
Through a series of lectures and workshops delivered by expert faculty, AMLT seeks to prepare you to help others travel and live safely in the developing world. Topics include HIV/AIDS, malaria, clinical logistics, medical ministry and the church, effective team leadership, and many more. The course provides ample opportunity for networking among participants and hands on application of lessons learned.
 
Clinic Workshop
There are three dedicated days of clinical workshops and practicums held. This includes both an urban and rural clinical practicum as well as a community development practicum. Workshops include safe food preparation, water purification, and utilization of mosquito nets, among others.

The watching mother lit up and with tear-filled eyes said, I feel something inside of me. I told her, It's called hope and that hope comes from Jesus Christ. He loves you and hasn't forgotten about you.
