Four West Ohio Volunteers in Mission teams plan to travel to Mexico in 2021 – in May, July, September and November. Last year, all but January’s team was cancelled due to the coronavirus pandemic, which contributed to a shortfall in funding for the Methodist ministries in Mexico.
With a vaccine on the way, and better safeguards now in place on both sides of the border, the VIM team leaders feel it is time to return. 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. 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.
