ON MISSION IN BELIZE

Our partnership in the country of Belize through Kidz Konnect 4 Jesus is full of exciting opportunities for 2017! These missions include meeting medical, dental, construction and prayer/evangelism needs, as coordinated through KidzKonnect4Jesus.

We have great opportunities to partner with Kidz Konnect 4 Jesus in Belize:

The Belize Trip Manual provides more detailed information.

Medical Mission

Kidz Konnect 4 Jesus offers quarterly opportunities for you to participate in their Medical Ministry through a mission trip.

Do you have to have a medical background to qualify for the trip?

No. You do not need to be “medically trained” to serve with the Kidz Konnect 4 Jesus Medical Ministry. There is a need for people to serve with patients, pharmacy and logistical administration. Usually, half of the individuals serving have some type of medical background and the other half do not. This is a great opportunity!

Is there a particular medical specialty preferred?

Absolutely not! As a matter of fact, it is helpful when individuals from a vast array of medical disciplines participate – Podiatry, Dentistry, Gastroenterology, Cardiology, General Practice, to name a few.

$635 + Airfare
Includes all meals, local transportation and lodging.
