Volunteers can also share their stories and photos about their past mission trips. If you are thinking about a mission trip in the future, you can quickly and easily create a volunteer profile and begin searching for your next mission adventure in minutes.

Also, we’d love to hear your feedback about the new MedicalMissions.org, and ideas you have for future improvements. Send us an e-mail with your feedback to info@medicalmissions.org.
