Shinji Strain, a medical student at UTMB Galveston, has been attending M3 since its inaugural year in 2016. Over the years, Sinji says he has learned a lot in terms of medicine and research and has also grown spiritually. M3 has made a significant impact on his life, and in this video, he encourages others to attend the conference to be challenged and meet people who will inspire and pour into them as young students. As Shinji says, “Come to M3 and your heart will be changed.”
As a young child, Sara Pross had a God-given dream to serve as a missionary in Africa. Although she didn’t know how or what that would look like, she tucked it away in her heart, only for it to later be ignited by the dying wish of her father when he told her, “Sara, make sure you live out your dream.” Watch this video to see how God used M3 to help in her journey to fulfilling her destiny.
You can do that in one day at M32020! We are offering a pre-conference workshop entitled, “Medical Missions 101 Gathering at M3”. The purpose of this workshop is to provide tools, knowledge, and strategy to help you, your church, organization, or mission program to implement effective healthcare missions. We will also look at ways individuals and groups can connect with Christian mission hospitals and health programs globally.
Topics to be discussed include how to engage with mission hospitals, preparation for surgical work overseas, medical education as a mission model, lifesaving strategies for low-resource settings, what medications are and are not safe in developing communities, international standards for healthcare delivery in developing countries, and community health strategies for low-resource settings.
This workshop is just one of five on Friday before M32020 begins on Friday evening. Click here to read more about the pre-conference workshops that will be offered this year. We hope to see you at M32020. Register today and save $5 with code: M3MISSIONS20.
Humanitarian work can be extraordinary, fulfilling and purpose-driven; and in many cases may provide a cure for the emotional exhaustion many us feel at home. On the other hand, the stress and demands of providing care in low-resource settings can also cause these exact same problems. We will examine how medical mission work could be the cause OR the cure for burnout and how to prevent compassion fatigue.
Dr. Kristin Long will conduct a breakout on Saturday morning entitled, “Running on Empty: Wellness, Burnout, and Compassion Fatigue in Humanitarian Work”. This session will address the critically important and timely concepts of burnout and compassion fatigue in medical providers.
Come here Dr. Long and many more speakers at M32020. Register today! www.m3missions.com
