You can help by joining a medical team to reach people with poor access to healthcare. As part of a medical team, you'll not only meet tangible needs, you'll help missionaries and local church members build relationships and introduce others to Christ. Because MTW teams are always connected with a national church, there's opportunity for long-term spiritual connections and follow-up.
