The Seventh-day Adventist Church in Chiapas, Mexico, highlighted its comprehensive health impact plan with eight brand-new vehicles during a special ceremony held in Tuxtla, Gutiérrez, Chiapas, June 3, 2019.  The new vans will be used to expand the health and medical missionary work at the eight conferences that comprise the union territory.

“Health is one of the important pillars the church should invest in to be used as a light where it is needed most, as part of fulfilling the mission,” said Pastor Ignacio Navarro, president of the church in Chiapas.  There are many marginal communities that are in great need of healing and medical services across Chiapas and the new equipped vehicles will cater to them, explained Navarro.

Local conference administrators, health ministries directors and Adventist health professionals took part in the inauguration ceremony at the union’s headquarter office in Tuxtla Gutiérrez.

The first half of the year has seen dozens of health brigades, an amount which has doubled this “Year of Health” focus the church is celebrating in Chiapas, church leaders said.

“We saw the great need of special medical transport vehicles and decided to facilitate that ministry in order to accomplish the scheduled activities throughout the year,” said Navarro.
