Compassion Med International (CMI) is a local, non-profit Christian organization whose purpose is to provide international medical relief around the world. CMI believes that we should “ . . . comfort those in any trouble with the comfort we ourselves have received from God” (2 Cor 1:3-4). The next trip is March 6-14, 2014 to Honduras. A 20 person team will travel with suitcases full of vital medicines (vitamins, antibiotics, anti-parasitics, Tylenol, etc.) to the poorest areas of Honduras where they will set up medical clinics in public elementary schools or churches. The team will visit an established medical clinic which CMI hopes to augment, and they will also support on-going nutritional and educational venues in Honduras.
Many hands are needed to prepare for the trip and serve – even if you don’t travel with the team. Jean Davidson and her husband Ron are leaders of CMI and part of the CUMC congregation. Contact Jean ( ) for more information.
