If you are a pharmacist with a yearning to introduce people to Jesus, this is a dream opportunity for you!
Overseas mission hospitals always have need of doctors and nurses, but there are other important staff that play an important role in a well-run hospital, too. A pharmacist is one of them! Bembereke Hospital is a well-established, well-recognized hospital in the rural north of Benin in West Africa. Started over 50 years ago by SIM, it is now run by SIM's partner church. This 240-bed hospital is staffed by a large team of qualified Beninese doctors, nurses, and other staff but is in need of a pharmacist. There are few pharmacists in the country and those few are not interested in working in the rural north.
Following God's leading to become a missionary pharmacist at HEB would mean that you would ensure the smooth function of a hospital. You would have opportunities to share your training and pharmacy management skills with staff. But, beyond this, you would be part of a Christian hospital team, showing Christ's love and compassion as you treat patients and interact with them and their families, many of whom are Mus*lim. Could God be leading you here?
