Zanzibar

September 1, 2022 — September 11, 2022

Join Developing Workers and Grace Community Church, Tempe as we venture into Zanzibar,Tanzania!

When we first traveled to Zanzibar in June of 2021, DW had the opportunity to form partnerships with local pastors and social workers as well as complete a community-needs assessment. We discovered that the need for incarnational ministry there is immense. Our new friends are also very excited to partner with us and to serve the social needs of the community through our CSI (Community Safety Initiative). We absolutely fell in love with the people there and can’t wait to go back to serve this unique community!

All types of volunteers will be needed for this trip – medical and non-medical.

We will fly into Dar es Salaam, then take a short flight to Zanzibar. We will be staying in the city center and serving in rural areas nearby where we will offer medical clinics for 5 days. At the end of this trip, we will have a debriefing time at the beach.

During the 5 days of clinic, we have the opportunity to build relationships with the local pastors as well as share the gospel with each person who comes through clinic. As people come through and have their physical needs met, we listen to their stories, learn of their social needs and assess their discipleship needs. Then they receive vitamins, a dewormer, and any necessary medicine. Patients feel seen, heard, and cared for. By the end of clinic, they have an opportunity to hear the gospel and receive prayer. At this point their hearts and minds are even more open because we have built a relationship of trust with each patient as they walk through clinic. Those in need of a deeper restorative discipleship relationship are offered an opportunity to be connected with a local HERO to walk with them on this journey. As a team, we have the opportunity to be part of their journey.

All types of volunteers are needed for this trip – medical and non-medical. We are looking for a variety of doctors, PA’s, NP’s, registered nurses, EMT’s, paramedics, students, and VOLUNTEERS. Each team of volunteers serves to provide medical exams, nutritional assessments, deworming, vitamins, dental hygiene instruction, medicine, and community safety (CSI) evaluations. Every patient is led through spiritual counseling and has the opportunity to be connected with the local church for follow up and discipleship. There is a place for everyone to serve! YOU DO NOT NEED TO BE A MEDICAL PROFESSIONAL TO JOIN.
