Provides medical assistance to people in rural Russia
that have little or no access to medical care. We also
have programs in and around Moscow with homeless
children, soup kitchens, and truck drivers. Also, medical
help for orphanages, schools, hospitals, clinics, private
homes, prisons, government agencies, armed forces,
truck stops, plus to the Nenets who have lived on the
Tundra in teepees for over 9,000 years.
Any church can plan a Mission Trip of one week, from
Saturday to Saturday and join the brothers and sisters
of the Presbyterian Church of Manaus to offer medical,
dental, social and spiritual assistance to the people
whom otherwise would be forgotten. The Presbyterian
Church of Manaus has a number of Medical boats and
programs year round. The Church of Manaus has
trained groups of professionals, some of them as
volunteers, to assist the people as physicians, dentists,
lab technicians,
pharmacists, social workers, teachers and
evangelists. As soon as the boat docks on the
riverbank, people immediately come around bringing
their children and their sick people to be seen by the
doctor. While the health team does that, others will go
on land, visiting the houses,
helping them with agricultural matters as well as
hygiene orientation.

The Episcopal Medical Missions Foundation
supports the medical mission stations of the
Episcopal Church in Honduras, Jamaica, Haiti,
the Dominican Republic, Nigeria, and Uganda. A
typical team is organized by one of the Episcopal
churches in the U.S. and is composed of six
physicians (generalists and pediatricians), four
dentists and their assistants, five nurses, two
pharmacists, two priests, and four interpreters.
They visit most of the villages during a one week
stay and provide medical and dental care that is
all most of the villagers ever receive. They
particularly are thankful for the many
medications that they receive, drugs that are
beyond the means of most of them.
The Evangelical Free Church Mission is the
international ministry of the Evangelical Free
Church of America. It exists to glorify God
through making disciples of Jesus Christ with the
goal of launching church-planting movements
internationally. EFCM also works in the field

SIM (Serving In Mission) is a worldwide family of
interdenominational believers dedicated to
reaching other people with the good news of
Jesus Christ. Their aim in meeting health and
medical needs is to demonstrate the compassion
of Christ in word and deed. They aim to make
disciples who also share His love as servant
leaders in the context of their own communities.
TEAM is an international, cross-cultural mission.
Their sole purpose is to help establish and grow
the Church virtually anywhere and everywhere.
North Americans take for granted antiseptic
hospitals with high-tech equipment and a well
trained staff. But the majority of the world's people
have grossly inferior health care-or none at all.
TEAM missionaries are working in some of
the most desperately needy places providing
very much needed healthcare services.

experience to lend a hand on the mission field.

YUGO's Ensenada Outreach Ministry allows
groups more flexibility in creating their own
missions experience. There are a variety of
outreach ministries to participate in, including
children's ministry (VBS), breakfast programs,
home building, hosting medical/dental clinics and
building chicken coops. This program is great for
those who have been coming to Mexico for a
number of years or who are coming for the first
time. Because Ensenada is located further
south, you will have opportunities to meet and
work with one of Mexico's indigenous people
groups, the Mixteco Indians. Although no training
program is offered, there is an option to purchase
our youth outreach training program as well as
Spanish tracts (please contact our main office).
