Hello -

Thank you for your interest in Samoa Medical Missions!

This year marks my second opportunity to go and serve alongside an extremely dedicated group of men and women. 

Mission of Hope Ministries works through local island churches to bring the message of the Gospel and medical aid to the people of Samoa.

James 2:15-16(NIV)
15 Suppose a brother or sister is without clothes and
     daily food.
16 If one of you says to him, "Go, I wish you well;
     keep warm and well fed," but does nothing about
     his physical needs, what good is it?

 Please consider joining the team. We can use medical and non-medical volunteers alike (some work with the Samoan children through VBS type programs). 

If you can't join the team but would still like to be involved, you can help by donating to offset the costs.  You can donate to individual team members, (use PayPal button on the right) as we all pay our own way, or you can donate directly to Mission of Hope. We try to cover all costs of the trip so that there is less financial burden  placed on the local Samoan churches.
