Evangelistic Medical Mission Crusades
Evangelistic Medical Mission Crusades are weeklong crusades, complete with volunteer doctors, dentists, nurses, hair stylists, children’s workers, cooks and general volunteers that seek to meet the physical needs present in poverty-stricken regions throughout Mexico in order to more effectively address the spiritual needs present. Free medical appointments (including free medication) and hair cuts are carried out throughout the day, along with activities for the local children. The good news of Jesus Christ is shared individually with all those attending the crusade, and the opportunity to accept Jesus as Lord and Savior is given to each person. Fishers of Men works closely with churches and missionaries in the area to ensure that follow-up and discipleship occur. Fishers of Men also seeks to provide funding for the work in the region to continue.
