Baptist Medical and Dental Mission International (BMDMI) exists under the Lordship of Jesus Christ to evangelize the lost, disciple the saved, and minister to the needs of the poor. Our flagship ministry is Short-Term Mission Teams, which sends more than 100 teams across the world each year to meet physical and spiritual needs. Our Volunteers are making a significant difference in the lives of thousands of people each year. In addition to Short-Term Teams, BMDMI provides quality theological preparation for pastors and church leaders, offers quality education to children in need, provides loving and safe environments to abused, abandoned, and orphaned children, and offers adult vocation training that impacts generations.

BMDMI founded and operates two Bible Institutes - one in Honduras and one in Nicaragua. These institutes provide theological and church training to pastors and church leaders free of charge. Full-time and part-time programs of study provide flexibility for students and are aimed at strengthening the leadership of BMDMI churches in these two countries.
In Guaimaca, Honduras, BMDMI leads multiple ministry projects under the flagship ministry of the Centro Medico de Especialidades. In this medical clinic, patients receive year-round clinical care, as well as occasional surgical treatments led by North American physicals and medical professionals. Additionally, BMDMI coordinates ministry in the areas of vocational training, clean water, food distribution, and evangelism!
Since 1974, BMDMI has established more than 150 churches in remote villages in Honduras and Nicaragua. Many of these congregations cannot fully afford to build a place of worship and/or Sunday school rooms in which to meet. Construction efforts are led by a full-time BMDMI missionary and are completed by BMDMI short-term team volunteers.
Emmanuel Home of Protection was opened in 2008 in Diriamba, Nicaragua and cares for young girls that have been victims of abuse. At the Emmanuel Home, they receive all the necessities of life, security, and a double portion of love! Led by full-time BMDMI Missionaries, the Emmanuel Home provides a safe environment where young ladies receive spiritual, emotional, and psychological support.
The Good Shepherd Children's Home (GSCH) in Honduras is home to more than 100 children in Honduras that have been abused or abandoned. The GSCH provides medical, dental, nutritional, educational, psychological, and spiritual care to the children.
The Good Shepherd Christian Academy (GSCA) is dedicated to providing a high quality, bilingual education to students. The GSCA houses 13 classrooms and serves more than 130 students, including those who are residents of BMDMI's Good Shepherd Children's Home.
The Mount of Olives Christian School serves more than 350 students enrolled from preschool through high school in San Gregario, Nicaragua. Students are offered the chance to move ahead with a quality, Christ-centered education as well as the tools needed to grow into productive citizens.
In 2012, BMDMI extended its mission into Nepal and is currently working to establish medical, dental, and educational programs to reach the hurting in one of the world’s most desolate countries.
Project Life® is a follow-up ministry of BMDMI’s Short-Term Medical Mission Trips. As Team Members encounter patients who require more intense and specialized medical treatment, the patients are referred to the Project Life® program, which works to make the procedures possible through providing the means for necessary treatment. Project Life® cases have included treatments such as open-heart surgery, cleft palate surgery, and burn.
Short-term Mission Teams with BMDMI work to provide medical care, dental care, veterinarian care, construction efforts, and direct evangelism to people living in remote villages throughout Honduras, Nicaragua, and Nepal. Each year, short-term team volunteers treat more than 100,000 patients, fill more than 500,000 prescriptions, and distribute more than 30,000 Bibles while sharing the Gospel with everyone they meet.
