Medical Ministry International (MMI) creates opportunities to serve Jesus Christ by providing spiritual and compassionate health care in this world of need.
Compassion is an integral part of everything they do because they strive to be the Hands and Feet of God. Jesus provided the perfect example of selfless love and compassion, and it is through this example that they conduct their services. "I have set you an example that you should do as I have done for you." (John 13:15)
In April 2021, FAIR established this partnership with Medical Ministry International (MMI). The aim of this partnership was to provide Fellowship churches an opportunity to passionately fulfill the commandment of Jesus, as described in Luke 9:2, “He sent them out to proclaim the Kingdom of God and to heal the sick” to provide spiritual and compassionate health care primarily in the Amazon regions of Igara Parana River communities and Leticia Region communities through the work of MMI there.
MMI Amazon has been providing spiritual and compassionate health care in the Amazon region for nine years through the work of a local team and regular trips of volunteers from Canada and the USA. The MMI Amazon team is passionately fulfilling the commandment of Jesus, as described in Luke 9:2, “He sent them out to proclaim the Kingdom of God and to heal the sick.” The consistent work and presence of MMI Amazon over the years has created an openness for the team to share the Gospel in two regions: Igara Parana River communities and Leticia Region communities.
This initiative in the Amazon is a tangible way you and your church community can help MMI meet the medical and spiritual needs of the people in these communities. There are opportunities to both give and volunteer. Click here to learn more.
