Body and Soul Ministries provides free medical, dental and optical care to those in foreign countries who typically go untreated. This non-profit organization was started by one man, Dr. John Bailey, who desired to volunteer his medical and dental expertise to people without access to the kind of services that are considered common in the United States. Because of his dedicated efforts, an organization of part-time volunteers and financial donors has evolved which, through their generosity, continues to make a profound difference in the lives of people around the world.

BandS Snapshot

This is our rebuilt BandS building in Arapal, Cebu, Philippines. There are so many people to thank for this beautiful restoration that is a better building than the original. Many contributed to the success of this project. If you are one who gave, prayed, labored or supervised the reconstruction you can see that it all came together very nicely.

No one had more to do with this than Salma Perocho. She was there before construction began, ordering and arranging delivery of supplies and watching the quality of the work as well as doing the interior decorating. Ernest Anderson from Saskatchewan was the Forman and did a great job of getting a lot done in a short period of time. Other than Ernest, all the construction workers were Filipinos. Congratulations to all for a job well done. See Slideshow
