At Mexico Medical Missions we labor in an area with immense physical need.
There is a mural on the wall of the Mexico Medical Missions hospital. The scene shows a lamb, struggling, inches from death on a steep precipice. But there is also a shepherd with strong, gentle hands reaching out...
Here at Mexico Medical Missions we reach out to a people struggling on the edge of life and death. Day by day, we treat the diseases and afflictions of the indigenous population of the northern Sierra Madre Mountains of Mexico.
We're compelled to help the tribal groups in the Sierra Madre.
Mexico Medical Missions focuses primarily on the Tarahumara Indians of northern Mexico. While the Tarahumara do believe in a creator god, their god depends on human efforts and ceremonies to sustain him. They believe that this god chose them as his special people but that this “honor” also means that they are relegated to a life of poverty and suffering. They fear lesser spirits that can attack their health and welfare. The Tarahumara even fear the rainbow, which they believe steals their children.
Our mission: To glorify Jesus Christ among the peoples of the Sierra Madre through acts of mercy, service and proclamation of the Gospel.
At Mexico Medical Missions we believe that proclaiming the Gospel of Jesus Christ takes more than words - it takes acts of love and service that cause a person to open their heart to the "Great Physician." We embrace an understanding of Scripture that clearly recognizes that the response of the believer to human need is an integral part of the Gospel. The love of Christ in us and through us must be demonstrated by our actions as well as heard in our preaching.
