Love others… in our world

Sadiq Medical Mission Trip to the Dominican Republic


The annual Sadiq Medical Mission team is led by Westwood’s Dr. Suleman Sadiq and his wife, Grace Sadiq, RN. Approximately 60 volunteers — medical professionals and general helpers from all over the U.S. and Canada — work in a medical clinic in poverty stricken areas of the Dominican Republic; part of the group also performs surgeries in a local hospital. All patients hear the Good News of Jesus Christ in addition to medical care. Both bodies and souls are healed on this trip.

The trip is open to anyone willing to share Jesus’ love with others. No medical experience is needed. Volunteers are also needed to pray for the trip, provide financial support, sew cloth bags for patient medications, paste Spanish health messages on used greeting cards, and help pack tubs of supplies. Donations of small bars of soap, toothpaste, matchbox cars, small dolls and hair barrettes are always needed.

Mission Aviation Fellowship – The Birkemo Family

Westwood helps to sponsor Nate and Terra Birkemo (and daughter Grace!), who serve Jesus through the MAF in the West Democratic Republic of the Congo. Nate is a pilot and helps fly personnel, medical supplies, mosquito nets, patients needing surgery – whatever is needed – in and out of remote locations. Updates on the Birkemo family and their work in the West D.R.C. are posted on the Outreach bulletin board in the Westwood atrium. Prayer is always needed.
