As Bayside Medical Missions’ team members, volunteer physicians travel to Ecuador to provide reconstructive orthopedic surgeries for both children and adults at La Vida Surgery Center in Portoviejo. Patients experience love and compassion from La Vida’s year-round staff as they hear of Christ's unconditional love and His gospel of grace. After discharge, La Vida’s staff chaplain follows up with patients in their homes where he shares the good news of a personal relationship with Christ. As part of these visits, it is our goal to provide a Bible to every patient who desires to have one.
Through "A Bible for Every Patient", anyone who wishes to participate in missions, yet unable to go abroad, can become part of our team by donating $3.91 for a Bible to be given to a patient. While of course suitable for all ages, involvement in this campaign provides a good opportunity to engage children in giving and reaching out in love to others.
It is also a great way to honor or celebrate a loved one.
