Mexican Medical Ministries is an interdenominational non-profit organization, founded in 1962, dedicated to providing low- or no-cost health care to the people of Mexico in the Name of Jesus Christ. The redemptive work of God touches the physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual condition of humankind, and our passion is to bring God's healing touch to the total person.
We believe part of the "Great Commission" is bringing Healing and Hope through medicine and the Good News of salvation through Jesus Christ. We consider it our call to assist others in ministering to the people of Mexico. We work with ministry sites, clinics and sister hospitals located throughout Mexico, primarily in Baja California. Our ministries include meeting the medical and spiritual needs of those with limited access to health care in developing communities, migrant camps, and isolated ranches. Our outreaches include community health education; health screenings; dental, medical and vision consultations; and surgical teams. We work alongside local churches in helping them to fulfill their ministry vision. Our goal is to share the Gospel with everyone who comes to see us for medical assistance. We have short- and long- term mission opportunities for medical as well as non-medical volunteers.
Amy Fuller first visited Mexico as part of Family Church's inaugural trip in 1994 and has been hooked ever since. She returned with several other Family Church teams to serve many summers as an intern with Mexican Medical Ministries. After graduating from the University of Oregon (Spanish major, Linguistics and Latin American Studies minors), Amy came on board full-time with Mexican Medical Ministries in January 2003.
She served at Clínica La Esperanza (located in Baja near San Quintín, about five hours south of the border) for four years before coming to serve at MexMed's U.S. office in the San Diego area in February 2007. She has worn many hats during her time in the office, and is now transitioning to a new role focused on exploring opportunities for Mexican Medical to minister in Cuba (a country that has had a special place in her heart ever since her semester as an exchange student in Havana in 2001).
