To The Nations
Medical Brigade Project, Michoacán, Mexico
August 7-13, 2016. A diverse team from Florida, Texas, Chihuahua and Morelia joined forces to bring a multi-pronged outreach to 3 cities in Michoacán. While Judah 1 and I led a team in 2 rural villages providing medical care and medications to over 400 people in 4 days, Ashley Roberts led Vacation Bible School in the large cosmopolitan city of Morelia. Randy Roberts and Renan DeBarros led open-air worship and healing services each night, traveling to all three communities. Pastor Virginia Ponce brought volunteers from Juarez, (a 28 hour bus ride!). And volunteers from Agua Vida, a large church in Morelia, helped with all of it. And our magnificent host and organizer, Elaine Wilburn, has been a faithful missionary on the ground there for thirty years. This outreach was also made possible by funding from Eagle Mountain International Church and donations from BSA Health System in Amarillo, Texas and Baylor Scott & White’s Faith in Action program.
Juarez Medical Outreach, November 2013
This medical outreach was underwritten by Kenneth Copeland Ministries and hosted by Pastor Virginia Ponce and El Rey Va Viene church in Ciudad Juarez, Chihuahua, Mexico. 3 days of clinic followed by healing service. Our amazing international team of nurses, medical assistants, nutritionists, translators and security experts all wore many, many hats, including creating a high -quality pharmacy on a church pew in a garage! Patient lines extended down the block and around corners, every day. Hundreds of patients were seen. One highlight of the trip was a medical procedure which allowed a twelve year old boy with a speech impediment to speak freely. Staff saw him running around the clinic, practicing moving his mouth freely, for the rest of the day.
