The Natchitoches Lions Club learned about the Baptist Medical and Dental Mission International (BMDMI) at its meeting Nov. 21. Chris and Denyse Williams moved to Honduras from Many in 2013 to work at a medical clinic.
BMDMI evangelizes the lost, disciples the saved and ministers to the needs of the poor by serving thousands in Honduras, Nicaragua, and Nepal with of love of Jesus Christ. Many around the world lack the basic necessities of food, shelter, medical and dental care, and education. That’s where the work of BMDMI comes in.
Benji Colvin of Natchitoches as well as people from Florien, Coushatta and other cities across the country join teams to volunteer their time through BMDMI. The Williams in Honduras host an average of seven teams a year.
BMDMI’s flagship ministry is short-term mission teams, which sends over 100 teams across the world yearly to meet physical and spiritual needs. BMDMI also provides theological preparation for pastors and church leaders; education to children in need; loving and safe environments to abused, abandoned and orphaned children; and adult vocational training.
