EQUIP THE LEADERS
HELP LOCAL LEADERS GET THE RESOURCES THEY NEED.
During our trip to Belieze in 2013, we met Miguel Martinez, Director of the Santa Elena Clinic in San Ignacio, Belize. Miguel had arranged for Jeff to obtain the credentials necessary to practice medicine while on the trip. We were able to travel to remote areas in Belize and provide both medications and medical care to some of the poorest people in the country. We also conducted a free surgery clinic out of the Santa Elena Clinic.
This clinic offers glucose monitoring, gastroenterology, ENT, urology and ultrasound. However, Miguel also uses his clinic to conduct both ministry and outreach. He frequently shares the Gospel with unbelievers, and the word of God with all that come in for help. His patients are given free medical care and surgery if needed. A major focus of the clinic is to use ultrasound along with counseling to encourage single mothers to complete their pregnancies rather than seek abortions. The clinic also provides free pre and post natal care if needed. Other ministry work includes providing free bibles and food packages to patients, and supporting school feeding programs. Because Miguel operates the clinic and his wife works at a local school they are able to see where help is needed most. The Martinez’s vision is to one day start a home for children on the streets of Belize.
Blessed to Give Ministries is looking forward to continuing our work with Miguel in the future to fulfill our mission of meeting physical and spiritual needs.
