Ensendad, Mexico



October 2011 Medical, Dental, Construction Team

Again a very successful Medical, Dental, and Construction Team Mission left from Oregon on October 13,2011 and arrived in Mexico on October 15, 2011.  In four days the medical and dental were able to serve approximately 500 people and the construction team worked in two different sights with continuous work on an outright center and the dormitory for future short term mission teams.  Besides the usual medical and dental teams, we added a podiatrist to assist with many feet issues which included diabetes, deformities and other common ailments regarding foot care. We also had glasses available for those needing eye support.

Hygiene packs, baby packs, tee shirts and blankets were given out to many families as well.  And as always the “hot dog brigade” was in full swing.  At one location, the members at the church prepared an authentic Mexican Lunch for everyone.

Following our departure, Francisco advised us that 4 new people came to the Lord in Vista Al Sol, one of the ministries outreach sights.

A wonderful time was had by all.  An invitation is extended to those who might be interested in a short term Mission Adventure to Ensenada, Baja Mexico.  We have found that traveling into this part of Mexico has been safe and uneventful.  For more information, please contact our web site at olivetreechildrensministies.org.  Thank you.

Medical and Dental Team Return

On Monday, March 21, 2011, the final three of a five team medical and dental unit returned from Olive Tree Children’s Ministries in Ensenada Baja, Mexico.  The trip was uneventful as far as any of the fears that many have while traveling into Mexico.  The people were extremely cordial and happy to meet us with whatever assistance was needed.

Our medical and dental team cared for approximately 550 people in four days of working with the Mexican Drs. and Dentists.  A local physician and aides assisted in all phases of the medical and dental care of the children and their families.

One extra and delightful addition was the ability to photograph each and every person and/or family member and give them a family protrait in many instances the first one ever received.

Hygiene Packs, Baby Packs, Food, and Blankets were also distributed to those in need.

Anyone wishing to make arrangements for travel is encouraged to contact Francisco and Elva Camacho for times available and Maggie Hubbard if you have any questions regarding traveling into Mexico and the requirements needed to enter with as much ease and safety as possible.

It is truly a rewarding experience and one that will always be with you.  God Bless those who are praying for the needs of the children and families served by Olive Tree Children’s Ministries.
