Dominican Republic (Jarabacoa)
The physical therapy site treats members of the community from all ages with varying disabilities. Through serving in love we want to establish, build, and nurture long lasting relationships with those in the community in order that they see Christ’s love in us. Students on short term mission trips are involved with patients and family members during physical therapy in many different ways such as: performing stretching and strengthening exercises, apply ultrasound/electrical stimulation, make hot/cold packs, maintain the cleanliness of the clinic, assist with patient transfers, and learn about the importance of physical therapy. The main goal for our students is to open their hearts to the people they have come to serve and show Christ’s love through their service and realize the gifts God has given them to use in their occupation.
