HOUSTON, Jan. 29, 2018 /Christian Newswire
/ -- Lakewood Church will hold their 3rd annual M3 Mobilizing Medical Missions Conference hosted by Dr. Paul Osteen this February 23 - 24 in Houston, Texas, home of the world's largest medical center.
The first of its kind on the Gulf Coast, the international M3 Conference is designed to bring together doctors, nurses, dentists and other healthcare professionals, as well as anyone who has a desire to use their skills to meet pressing global healthcare needs.
New this year will be an Emergency Field Hospital (EFH) from Samaritan's Purse; one that is similar to the organization's EFH used in Northern Iraq. The hospital will be set up and available for tours Thursday, February 22 through Sunday, February 25.
More than 50 global missions organizations will be at the M3 Conference, organizations that change lives, communities and nations. From caring for the sick to drilling for clean water, caring for orphans, and fighting human trafficking. The M3 conference is about connecting medical and missions expertise, interest and passion to the world's needs.
"I have seen men and women who are in the trenches; doing what they can do to help people in extremely resource-limited settings. We don't have to have all the answers; we just have to do our part. I believe your heart will be moved with compassion and you too will be inspired to do what you can to help," said Dr. Paul Osteen.
Attendees will hear from over 30 speakers and leaders from renowned organizations including Keynote Gary Haugen, JD, Founder and CEO of International Justice Mission, Hope Through Healing Hands, MedSend, Samaritan's Purse/World Medical Mission, and many others. Attendees don't have to be working in the medical field to attend.
