Health & Safety
I cannot even begin to say how please my husband and I are to be a part of CHM. We really appreciate their focus on prayer, and their willingness to provide a way in which believers can still receive financial aid, even for medical expenses that would not otherwise be covered by insurance (such as pre-existing conditions).
It is such a blessing to know that our monthly “insurance” premiums are going towards helping other believers, and such a relief to know that our money is not supporting abortions or unethical expenses. We also appreciate how affordable they are, making it possible for us to have medical insurance coverage even on our small missionary salary. This organization has been an answer to prayer!

* Good Neighbor Insurance

Also view their manual of medical advice and tips for overseas workers. Or browse their library of articles about understanding international health insurance.

A network of believers who share each other’s medical burdens. Similar to Samaritan’s Purse, but with CHM there is only one address where you send monthly payments, and they offer the option for your payment to automatically be deducted from your bank account, making it a much more viable option for overseas missionaries.
