Trip Details

This trip is an opportunity to develop relationships of encouragement, support, curiosity, and fun with the staff and community leaders serving Life in Abundance - South Sudan, as well as a short-term team from Flatirons. Participants will gain an understanding of LIA’s unique community empowerment model while experiencing the beauty and struggles of the newest country in the world. This team will partner alongside LIA’s community leaders and medical staff, becoming advocates and friends, while participants have an opportunity to begin to discover how God would like to use them around the world. While participants will bring their expertise to a limited medical setting, emphasis is placed on empowering and encouraging local leaders in their knowledge and provision of care and supporting LIA to become known and trusted in the local community.

Those with an active certification (must be able to provide a copy of valid certification/license) in general/family practice, trauma/emergency/field medicine, maternal/female health, pediatrics, dental, and eye specialists are encouraged to apply. In addition to medical expertise, participants should come with a curiosity to learn about who LIA is and how they partner with local communities, feel strongly about encouraging the role local community leaders play, have a willingness to be led by field staff, a heart to teach but also to learn, have a passion to discover what third-world medicine might have to teach Western medicine, and a strong desire to exemplify Jesus in all they do.
Learn more about Life In Abundance (LIA) from their website.
