St. Andrew's has a long and successful history of cross-cultural mission trips. Our congregation has sent teams to Nicaragua with PAN Missions 3 times over the last decade, as well as participated in a Youth in Mission trip (PWS&D) to Malawi in 2013. What a heart for service!

A PAN Missions Medical Service Team from St. Andrew’s headed to Nicaragua in July of 2014.  Our team of 21 included 9 young people and 12 adults, including a nurse, a pharmacist and a doctor.  From July 9 until July 24, they operated 5 temporary medical clinics in remote rural areas of Nicaragua, as well as tending to other needs in an impoverished nation.  Our team visited hospitals, cancer clinics, orphanages, schools, feeding centres, churches and a baseball academy and delivered much needed assistance to those in need.

Here are some more pictures of our clinics.

Sports, crafts, games, and bubbles are important elements of all our clinics. They provide wonderful opportunities to build community with the people we meet at our clinics. And they give many children and adults a few moments to play and laugh and have fun.

Bubbles are always a big hit! Sarah's bubbles delight these children.
