30 Jun 5 Little-Known Resources
We’re here to help you and your team succeed. Every medical mission or permanent clinic needs more than medicines to be successful, so we’ve provided these little-known but extremely useful resources and services.
Have you used all five? Let us know in the poll at the end!
1. Skip the Packing Party
Our Medication Repackaging Service (MRS) takes select medicines or vitamins you order through us and packages them in individual, zip-locked packets. Bags can be ordered in quantities of twenty, thirty, sixty, or ninety tablets each, and labeling is available in a choice of twenty-two languages.
Any item packaged through MRS has up to (depending on the manufacturer’s original expiration date) a two-year beyond-use date from the day of repackaging.

2. Prepare for Your Mission Trip Spiritually and Mentally
Our nine-day devotional plan is a healthy dose of practical and spiritual considerations for your next mission trip. Applicable to first-time travelers and regular missionaries alike, it focuses on pre-trip preparation and post-trip recommendations for any type of mission trip.

3. Earn CME/CNE on Mission Trips
Blessings MedEd connects providers with continuing education courses so that they can use their continuing medical education (CME) or continuing nursing education (CNE) hours toward a mission trip.
When an organization places an order of $1,500 or more, they will receive access to continuing education courses through an association we’ve partnered with. Each code is valid for one year, and offers 20% off each CME/CNE course offered through the portal. There’s no limit to how many people can use the code.
Providers who take the courses are able to itemize their mission trip or medical outreach under their required continuing education hours, allowing participants to learn and serve on the mission field, while also connecting NGOs with needed medical providers.

4. Don’t Know What to Pack?
We have two easy-to-use lists that are intended to provide a suggested formulary for teams needing a guide for a medical mission outreach. We have two bundles: one standard formulary (useful for first-time mission teams traveling abroad) and one export package (useful for teams wishing to send medicines abroad).
- Blessings Bundle – Medical Treatment Formulary
(Recommended to treat 1,000 patients. This list is a suggested formulary to use as a guide when building your order.
- Blessings Bundle – Export Package
A resource for teams who wish to send medicines abroad but may not know what to send. This package is a complete order, providing medicines and supplies for the most frequently treated conditions. The Export Package is eligible for free export shipping.
