These pods have been built to serve communities with a medical need. They have a table, flooring and shelves as well as examination table and dentist chair.
The pods will be sent to an under-developed country during a disaster to help with making health car available.
According to church officials, more than $30,000 went into building the medical pod.
The church will deliver the pod to Houston, where it will be available for use in third-world country disaster relief.
