In 1996 I was seeking purpose in my life and I found that God wanted to have a relationship with me. Almost from that moment He led me to the mission field. He has given me the gifts of compassion and the knowledge of medicine. His plan was for me to use those gifts to “Feed (His) my sheep”.
After four years of going independently into the field as a short term medical missionary, my family and I formed International Christian Resources, Known as ICR, a 501 (c)3 non-profit organization. We are a Christian Non-Denominational group which allows us to partner with many other organizations.
We travel where ever the Lord leads fulfilling the physical needs of His sheep as a platform to share the gospel. We started in 1997, by taking small church groups to Central America. We were able to help build an orphanage and kick off our first outreach medical camps.
Today we take anyone who wants to get involved in the Lords work reaching out to all faiths at home and through out the world. We bring food, clothing and medicine. We help the local people plant and build churches. We are the “bait on the hook” that they use to reach their own people with practical needs while showing them love.
In 2003 God added another objective to our mission; one of raising up students to feel and act with the compassion of Christ in the mission field, in their careers, and in their daily lives. What better way to accomplish that than to take the students into the mission field.
International Christian Resources will, utilizing student medical missions and all available resources, meet the physical and practical needs of the spiritually lost in order to reach and touch them with the Gospel. By the grace of our Lord we hope to ignite and train disciples to go forward as they are called.
Isaiah 41:17, 20 When the poor and needy seek water and there is none, and their tongues fails for thirst, I the Lord will hear them, I the God of Israel will not forsake them That they may see, and know, and understand together, that the hand of the Lord hath done this and the Holy One of Israel hath created it.
