Medical and dental clinics in Chuuk
For more than seven years, GDMMissions has worked with missionaries in the Federated States of Micronesia, using medical and dental care to help reach the lost for Christ. This care is much-needed and appreciated, especially by those who live on remote islands. Free medical and dental care often opens doors to present the Gospel in communities that would not otherwise be open to it. A medical and dental evangelism Field Team ministry is scheduled to the island of Chuuk in July, 2014 in cooperation with Chuukese students from Harvest Baptist Bible College in Guam. For more information on this trip and a schedule of other GDMMissions upcoming ministries,see our Upcoming Ministies page.
Ministry Geography: The Federated States of Micronesia is composed of the island states of Yap, Chuuk (Truk), Pohnpei (Ponape), and Kosrae, all in the Caroline Islands. The islands vary geologically from high mountainous islands to low coral atolls, with volcanic outcroppings on Pohnpei, Kosrae, and Chuuk. They are located 3,200 mi (5,150 km) west-southwest of Hawaii, in the north Pacific Ocean and include more that 2,000 islands.
