I have been living in Peru and serving with MMI full time for 4 years with an additional 10 hear history with MMI doing short term projects. I love the way we incorporate sharing the Gospel through the works of service that we do. It's a whole person approach. The way we are able to interact with patients so personally is life changing. I will treasure the relattionships with patients and coworkers that I have met through MMI forever. Being able to give back to the poor from the many blessings we have in the USA is priceless.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Hire more staff to help with short term project management in the Texas office. An idea: targeted fundraising efforts one at a time to support projects in other countries versus general fundraising and spreading it between projects. For example, in xx country they need $25,000 for a vehicle. All donation efforts would be made to complete that goal and then move onto the next. Countries could apply for assistance in this area and feel that their need is going to be assisted for fundraising.

MMI is a unique opportunity to reach out to the undeserved offering holistic help in health and the teaching of self-awareness and self-care. I have had the privilege of being part of the leadership teams in several of the MMI served countries including the Dominican Republic, Jamaica, Honduras, Mexico, Peru, Guatemala, Ecuador, and Ghana amongst others over more than 20 years.
From a close-up view, I can attest to the careful and cautious use of donors’ and volunteers’ time and resources, given to the cause of Christ in touching the poor.
It’s a time when very hard work combines with much fun, much adaptation, grace and flexibility contributing to personal growth and strengthening of character as a person and servant of God.
The personal and professional relationships fostered locally and internationally through this joint effort is something hard to match through other venues. There is something about self-giving and service to others which binds people together and draws us all closer to each other and to Christ.

I went on my first missionary trip with MMI in august of 2013, and not only was it interesting and fulfilling, but it was far more enlightening and exciting than I expected. MMI does so much to help the people in need, and not just only in Peru. The group that I was lucky enough to travel with was well organized, composed of some of the most genuine people I've met, and did so much good for those who came to the clinic, truly executing works of incredible charity in the name of Christ.
Our time was well spent in Peru, fairly divided to offer us time to explore the beautiful and interesting country of Peru. I made some lifelong friends and I cannot wait to volunteer again.

My husband and I have been volunteering with MMI for almost 25 years. We lead a team every year to Las Matas de Farfan, Dominican Republic which is about 4 hours from the capitol city. Our team provides excellent surgical, medical and dental care to those who do not have access to this care. Each patient seen also receives spiritual care and health education. Our volunteers are compassionate medical personal and loving non medical people. There are many, many stories of how the lives of our patients are changed but also how participants lives have been changed. A MMI mission trip is a great way to expose a teenager to how the rest of the world lives. One participant has brought over 10 members of her family at different times to experience a mission trip in a third world country. We started with MMI so we could bring our college age children on a mission trip and thru the years our son has returned with us as a medical student, surgical resident and a surgeon. And the great thrill was to have our daughter come back brining her teenage son. What a great family legacy to share this experience with members of your family.

We just completed our 22 short term mission trip to the Dominican Republic with Medical Ministry International . After our first trip with our college children we became mission addicts and the mission trip is always the highlight of our year. Our teams are made up of wonderful medical and non medical people who have compassionate hearts and want to serve the needy of the Dominican Republic. The MMI Dominican Project Staff are organized and have all the arrangements made so that we can spend our time serving on the surgical or the medical/dental team. There is an incredible amount of work done while we are in the Dominican Republic for two weeks and we always feel like God is the source of our strength to do so much. I always tell first timers that you go to serve but you are the one who is blessed. This is a great group to go with and take your teenagers so that they see what it is like to serve others in a third world country. Truly an unforgettable experience and your life will be changed when you come back!

MMI has made significant changes in the lives of the poor, combining compassion, life saving medical care and Christ-centred spiritual input to thousands around the globe. My life has been transformed by the opportunity MMI has afforded me to serve the poor and forgotten around the world.

I have been participating on projects with MMI for 25 years in many different countries. MMI changed my life, and continues to do so. The spiritual foundation of all the projects keeps participants in the right frame of mind to sincerely help those we serve. We avoid "medical tourism", and work hard to enable our project populations to improve their physical and spritual heat for the long term. As a surgeon, I find the projects to be well organized, and Teo and the Dominican staff are good stewards of funds provided for their projects. I look forward to working with them every year!

I have served with MMI in three countries on over 7 different projects. I have been thoroughly blessed by MMI's capacity to minister to the physical and spiritual needs of their patients while allowing volunteers to utilize their skills and talents in a unique and beneficial way. MMI not only improves the lives of their patients but also builds up the hearts of volunteers.
Flexibility and teamwork are the strengths of the organization!

I went on my first medical mission trip with Medical Ministry International in July 2007. It was an eye project to Arequipa, Peru. It was awesome! Everything was very organized, housing was great, transportation was always good and overall, it seemed like everyone had a great time! There were lots of laughs shared along the way and friendships still made.

My first experience with MMI was last July 2013. It was a great time where I saw people give unselfishly of themselves, their time & their money. We went to Arequipa Peru to help the nationals. We went to be a blessing and we were blessed. MMI is a great team of hard working people who love and give & give some more. I was so pleased by every aspect of the trip & the great MMI staff. I recommend MMI to everyone. Thank you.
