Missionaries: Earl and Ruthanne Haubner
Mission: Central Brazil Mission (CBM), Brazil

Come join the medical mission of FAME on a trip to the Amazon! We will be serving with Central Brazil Mission (CBM) on a 1 week boat trip along the breath-taking Amazon River.

Come aboard the “Frances Ann” and enjoy the beauty along the way as we dock at multiple remote villages along the river and treat patients experiencing both physical and spiritual needs.

Patients will make their way on board the boat to be seen by medical professionals on the team. Medical professionals will diagnose and treat the patient’s illness while non-medical participants will take blood pressures, temperatures, height and weight of all patients, and teach a health education lesson to all patients waiting to be seen by the physician. Non-medical participants will also engage in activities and games with children from the village. Haircuts and manicures are also a way to build a friendship with someone of any age. Everyone will experience the love of Christ through you!

Accommodations on the boat include air-conditioned sleeping rooms or you may want to experience sleeping in a Brazilian hammock on the upper deck! A refreshing shower, clothes washer, and meals are all provided on the boat.

This is an amazing experience you won’t want to miss!
