Join Our Prayer Team
At Medical Teams International, we work in difficult places, where people are suffering and danger is real. As a non-denominational Christian organization
, we value prayer as a way to acknowledge our need for God’s blessing on all of our efforts.
We pray for those we serve, for our volunteer teams, and for partners working in the field. We invite you to share with us your prayer requests.
