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. Though the people face the harshest physical realities, we know that the
greatest battle lies elsewhere.
In these age-old mountains we recognize, as did the Apostle Paul, that "our struggle is not against
flesh and blood." The Mexico Medical Missions team believes that everyone's greatest need is to
know Jesus Christ as Savior and Lord. We serve because we genuinely love the people of the Sierra,
because we are commanded by Jesus to care for others, and because we believe that proclaiming the
Gospel of Christ takes more than just words - it takes acts of love and service. It takes strong, gentle
hands reaching out.
