A team of 15 people from Emmanuel Episcopal Church of Grass Valley will travel to Mexico to work with Luke Medical Foundation and their medical providers to run four mobile medical clinics from Oct. 10-17.

During these clinics, the medical staff will be identifying and treating medical conditions and enrolling and engaging people with the health resources that are available to them through the Mexican national healthcare.

Each of these clinics represents either a first engagement with an area of Tijuana, or the follow-up of one that was earlier started.

However, they all seek to provide for the continual care of people who live in communities with very poor access to healthcare.

During the medical clinics, Emmanuel’s team will be both serving with the medical professionals and also caring for and developing relationship with the people who are waiting to be served.

“We hope that through these clinics, and our words and deeds, that Jesus Christ can be lifted up and that the people we serve will be blessed,” said Gerry Bunker, one of the team organizers.
