GU14-139
October 18 - 25, 2014
Xela, Guatemala

North Carolina Baptist Men, working in cooperation with IICD (International Indigenous Community Development) in central Guatemala, will send teams to assist with 1) the completion of a community health clinic and leadership training center; 2) the renovation of a children's home that will start operation in 2014.


Medical Teams
Teams of 10-12 will work in a mobile clinic setting in a strategic village or town. Teams are placed in the most needed areas, as well as areas where indigenous pastors are actively working to start new churches.  Teams should be built around 2-3 primary care providers (MDs, DOs, NPs, or PAs) who will see the patients.  Medication dispensary should be manned by a health care practitioner (pharmacist preferred, but RNs also work well in this capacity).  Teams will need to bring in the medications they will use for their team, counting on primary care providers seeing approximately 30 patients per person; per day (some see more).  Detailed information on what to bring and potential conditions encountered, will be provided. Other team members serve as support personnel, and should be mostly comprised of medical professionals to maximize the effect of the team. Organization of the clinic is done by local missionary, in conjunction with national believers who know the culture.  Evangelism is organized and led by the nationals, who speak the language and know the culture. NC Baptist Men will arrange for airfare, volunteer missionary insurance, and other logistics, including transportation to and from the airport, daily transportation, and lodging. The team will stay at the Good Shepherd center if the mobile clinic setting is close.  If not, the team will stay in a hotel closer to the site. Meals will either be at the center, at the hotel, and/or in local restaurants, depending on where team stays. 

Cost for Ministry Teams (Approximate)
Total cost will be dependent on: 1) number of members on the team, and 2) the current cost of airfare. Field costs include lodging, in-country transportation, building/ministry materials, orientation, and insurance. It also includes an 
estimate of $200 for all meals, which each person will take down with them. (True costs of these meals may be slightly less or more, depending on where the team chooses to eat.) Airfare typically runs from $600 to $850, depending on time of year. A valid passport (must have at least six months remaining) and some immunizations are required. Here is an estimate based on two possible ticket price ranges. This is provided just to give an idea of price range.
