Two to three weeks out of the year, medical teams partner with local churches and ministry leaders in Piedras Negras to provide clinics as an outreach tool in neighborhoods throughout the city. Clinics set up by our medical teams serve the local community through compassionate healthcare by providing basic checkups and medicine for ailments. The clinics are based on the biblical model of caring for the body, mind, and spirit. Our goal is that, through our outstanding patient care and the church leaders’ counsel, God’s love is shown and patients will come to know Christ. Volunteer teams of healthcare professionals and students are needed to conduct these clinics. Participants experience a supervised, hands-on experience. Non-medical individuals are also welcome and participate in clinics according to their ability and experience. For more information on our medical missions, contact Michele Harrell at firstname.lastname@example.org.
