West Ohio's mission teams to Mexico are coordinated through Manos Juntas, the licensed healthcare ministry of the Methodist Church of Mexico. Each short-term mission consists of two to three days of mission service along with travel and set up. A mobile medical clinic (with triage, pharmacy, intake and exam area) is set up in different locations during the mission. Each day's location will be determined by Manos Juntas staff and will maximize the teams' impact. Clinic sites will be in communities around Rio Bravo, Reynosa and Nuevo Progreso. The team stays at Manos Juntas in Rio Bravo.
Each team is comprised of medical professionals (doctors, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, specialists, nurses and dieticians), translators, pastors, educators and people willing to share the love of Jesus. Some teams also include a construction project and/or visiting the children's home, where additional people can serve.
Cost is $350 per person to cover lodging, ground transportation, and meals. Each person is responsible for purchasing their own airfare. Team members must also raise a minimum of $100 toward the mission's administrative and medication costs of $2,500.
A NON-REFUNDABLE $150 deposit is due upon registration. Remaining funds are due no later than 20 days prior to the mission date.
Registration deadline is August 13, 2023. After that date, email pelliott [at] messiahumc.net for information.
