Radiologist or Radiologic (X-ray) Technician
Career: Medical and Health Ministry
Length of Service: 1-2 years
PRF Number: 6560
Can you imagine the eternal impact you could have as a radiologist in the lives of so many people needing the Lord? A large hospital in rural Benin is in need of an x-ray technician or a radiologist to train their present x-ray department staff. The current staff (two techs with diplomas from a government program and another who has received on-the-job training) would benefit greatly from a higher level of capacity and skill. This is the perfect opportunity for a Christian x-ray technician or radiologist to experience missions in an underdeveloped country while using his/her training to meet a critical need at a hospital. You would teach and train as you worked along with the staff, providing the necessary x-ray skills for a busy hospital and outpatient clinic.
As you work in this rural African hospital, you'd have the joy of getting to know the Beninese staff with whom you are working. During your time in Benin, you'd get to know some of their stories and get to know another culture as you interact with them, attend church, shop in the market, and enjoy activities with them. You'd get to know more of the heart of the people along with catching some of God's heart for them. You'd get to be part of a mission community and see the larger picture of what God is doing throughout the country. Do you have from 2 weeks to 2 years to give to an experience such as this?
