“Two are better than one, because they have a good return for their labor: If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.” -Ecclesiastes 4:9-10
For the past 20 years, the West Ohio Conference has been sending VIM teams to a clinic at a non-denominational church in Nuevo Progreso, Mexico. During that same time, a Methodist Church in the neighboring colonia was growing to the point that it could support a medical clinic within its own complex. In January 2011, it was decided that West Ohio and Manos Juntas would join in full partnership, working together hand-in-hand, to provide medical care for the local community. A new clinic building was reconstructed in Iglesia El Buen Pastor in Colonia Francisco Madera, Nuevo Progreso. Now, the people of the colonia have regular access to quality healthcare.
