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.
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...
