There is no medical care in many of the remote villages in the state of Oaxaca. Occasionally, children will die of diarrhea and other related sicknesses which can be easily treated and cured with basic medical knowledge and pharmacy resources. As in the parable of the mustard seed, a little bit of help goes a long way!
The medical team at Roca Blanca, along with the help of short-term medical teams from the United States, have ministered to over 110,000 patients since 1991. Many have come to know the saving grace of Jesus Christ through this ministry, and churches have been planted as a direct result of these medical missions, accompanied with the preaching of the gospel.
In 1994 the Corban Clinic medical facility was constructed at Roca Blanca. This facility is open to the public for consultation each weekday, but patients in need are never turned away. Laura Pratt, Dr. Eder Matus, and the nursing staff help to meet the needs of each individual that comes to the clinic. The facility is also used for dental clinics with Dr. Adriana Infanzón, and minor surgery, and for visiting doctors. In addition to quality medical care, every patient who visits the clinic receives spiritual counseling and prayer. It’s exciting to see people experiencing the love of God both through practical, physical care and through the encouragement, comfort and challenge of His Word.
