Medical Boomerang

Medical professionals using their skill for missions


Bringing physical and spiritual healing through short-term medical outreaches


Medical professionals going out and coming back, producing a deeper passion for the poor and needy, bringing lasting change in the lives of those in need.

Take part in a medical missionary experience and you will gain confidence as you adapt to a less resourced environment, compelling you to grow in dependence of the Holy Spirit. Develop a deeper love for the poor and needy, share the Gospel, teach and train others, offer your expertise and be confronted with the huge needs of the world around us. Trust God and be effective for Him.

Many health care workers in health depleted areas lack education, and training, they work in crisis situations with little medical advise, and technology. You will be able to teach and work in variable health settings, learning to improvise through the lack of technology. Your dependency on God will grow as you function as a medical person led by the Holy Spirit.

What we do

Orientate medical professionals, send them out to use their skills, teach and multiply health skills, pray for people and share the gospel.

Medical Boomerang is accredited with the University of the Nations as Orientation to Medical Missions

Health promotion and multiplication

Most of the world understands orally, many cannot read or write. Our medical boomerang teams will have the opportunity to teach people to train others. We will train you in simple easy to understand health messages in order to help you impart your knowledge effectively to bring lasting change.

Networking and skill sharing

Teams are made up of a variety of health professionals, doctors, specialists, nurses, midwives, physiotherapists, dentists, occupational therapist, pharmacists, primary health care workers etc. We all learn from one another and support and confidence is gained.

Prayer and sharing the Gospel

Prayer is foundational to all that we do. Without prayer, nothing can be accomplished. God performs miracles and people are healed through the power of prayer! All patients that come for our care are prayed with. Many come to understand Gods love and salvation.
