Saipan-based church extends help to Rota


The medical mission hosted by a Saipan-based church provided services to over 100 Rota residents as part of its Good Hands Ministry.

The Pentecostal Missionary Church of Christ 4th Watch hosted a medical mission on Rota last Saturday, April 28.

The purpose of the medical mission is to serve the Rota community and advocate for healthy living while also sharing personal testimonies.

According to PMCC’s head minister Claire Javillionar, the medical mission reached out to 132 Rota community members.

Louis Mesa of Marianas Referral Office was touched by the passion to help, saying even just a haircut means a lot.

Joel Charfauros, a retired police officer, said the community of Rota appreciates the kind gesture.

The services offered during the medical mission include haircuts, blood sugar check and blood pressure check, facial cleansing, and body massage.

The PMCC church also distributed 377 items that include tissues, soap, hand sanitizers, alcohol, towels, toothbrushes, eyeglasses, and more.

The volunteers who participated in the medical mission were from the PMCC church.
