Evangelistic Medical Mission Crusades

In a country imprisoned by a national religion permeated with empty rituals and superstitions, Fishers of Men, through medical and dental clinics conducted under the leadership of Adrian Tovar, provides much needed free medical care in remote and poverty-stricken regions of Mexico, while offering the hope and help that come through a personal faith in Christ.  Volunteer doctors, dentists, nurses, dental hygienists, paramedics, children’s workers, cooks, hair stylists and general volunteers meet the physical needs of the local population, while sharing the hope found through salvation in Jesus Christ. 

While waiting for their free prescription, individuals who come for treatment have a one-on-one conversation with a crusade volunteer who shares the message of Christ and offers them the opportunity to accept Jesus as their personal Lord and Savior.  Volunteer children’s workers share the Good News of Jesus Christ with the local children through songs, games, crafts, Bible stories and clowning.

Several Evangelistic Medical Mission Crusades (EMMC) occur each year, with teams ranging in size from 10 to 40 volunteers from Mexico, the United States and Canada.  Each crusade takes place in a community that has an active missionary or congregation, in order to ensure effective follow-up and discipleship.

Here are a few snapshots of what goes on during a typical crusade...
