I am an Ophthalmologist who has worked with MMI since 1999. I've been on 10 mission trips and have seen first hand how this ministry changes lives. I plan to go again taking my daughter with me next year.
God Bless this Organization.
MMI is an amazing non profit organization serving the poor all over the world and in the USA as well. Having served as a volunteer for eleven two week medical ministry trips in six countries and now as a board member I highly recommend this organization. Truly a Christian based organization with a mission to serve the poor.
I have been on the board of MMI for about six months now. I am looking forward to the years to come! The MMI International team is one of the finest I have ever come across. I am honored to be along for the journey!
Have you ever gone on a short term mission trip and wondered if any of the good work you did while you were there would be meaningful and long lasting to the people you served after you left? Medical Ministry International is so unique in that respect. They have about 15 permanent health centers all over the world that continue running day in and day out 365 days out of the year. They are designed to model the Body of Christ. EVERYONE is needed, medical and non-medical to do their specific part to nurture and sustain the entire body.
I have been a fan and a volunteer for MMI for many years now. It continues to be my all time favorite nonprofit ministry for serving the poor and suffering of the world.
My family started donating to MMI about a year ago. The first thing that drew us to MMI was that the sole purpose is to serve the poor. Because of the efficiency of their staff, they are able to put a large percentage of their donations towards the actual hands on ministry portion. I have had the privilege of meeting some of the wonderful people who work in the Allen, Texas office. Everyone was totally committed to the cause of MMI and there was a contagious joy that permeated the place. I hope to someday join a team to minister in one of the many clinics around the world.
The people,you work with on the trips and here in the states are amazing! They think of everything before you leave on a trip. They are very good at answering all the questions you might have. I highly recommend MMI! What can be better than Serving the Lord and showing others??
I was blessed to be a part of an MMI mission in Bolivia this July. It was one of the most amazing experiences of my life! The MMI teams, both in the states and in Bolivia, are phenomenal!! Their commitment to serving the less fortunate by providing quality healthcare, and sharing God's love is evident in all they do. MMI thought of everything from pre-trip logistics, flight reservations, on the ground travel, team preparation for the project, great meals, comfortable lodging, safety, translators, aiding in on-site interactions with Bolivians, to much, much more! I highly recommend that you consider partnering with MMI by using your skills to serve or by donating monetarily to their work, but most importantly by your prayers of support...it will be a very worthwhile investment!
I have done mission trips with MMI annually since 2001. They do an amazing job organizing the projects. The work is meaningful and their staff bends over backwards to insure a great experience.
I enjoy all the good they do for people. Goooo MMI
MMI is the best! Thank you to Rachel Euhus for helping facilitate the interaction of my donations. I'm so proud of the work they do here!
MMi is one of the best non profits in the nation. The direct impact this company has on the world is significant. Nothing comes close to the commitment and direction obtained everyday. Just wow!
I was in Dominican Republic in January 2015 with Medical Ministry International. This was my 22nd year volunteering with MMI. I have seen improvements in the health of the patients who comes to us because of MMI 's commitment to not just treat the patient's illnesses but also to teach them how to take care of themselves. I appreciate the fact that we work alongside Dominican physicians and health promoters as equals. Most of all I appreciate the fact MMI strives to provide healthcare using Jesus as it's guide.
My first MMI project was in 1993 and I have volunteered on medical teams yearly ever since. I received more than I give to the patients I see. Volunteering on a project reminds me why I became a physician. MMI strives to make sure the volunteers are well taken care of. I have never felt unsafe when I am volunteering on a project.
I was able to go on a trip to Bolivia the summer of 2014. There were 3 of us from the US, 1 from Singapore, and 8 from Bolivia. The team was phenomenal - the selflessness was inspiring! The work the team did and the love they showed everyone was just fantastic. The whole week was a true testimony to the good people can do and the change we can bring about, when we work with others.
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.
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!
MMI is awesome to volunteer through. They are changing lives around the world and its so neat watching MOM grow.
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.
