Dr. Elden Lopez, Together with the midwives of the community in the year 1978.

He began in 1978 the mind of Elden López M.D.  when he went to the northern part of the jungle of Petén in Guatemala to do his social service and complete his last demand by the government to extend full privileges to practice medicine in the Republic of Guatemala.
It was a challenge to have low-income people  (0.50cents a day to support a family at the time) on the banks of the La Pasion River in Sayache County, with no equipment or supplies but only the desire for power Help, it is where he realized how great the needs of this people were. They lack food and education and the only food that was offered at that time, as an acceptance for their community was the monkey soup. Dr. Lopez realized that he had to ... at least pretend to eat the test food for acceptance in his community "Monkey Soup" (Dr. Lopez said "It was difficult to taste the soup after seeing the Monkey heads floating in the soup and the two small eyes that look at you "). At that moment he realized the great need facing this community and promised to return someday and teach them to live a more abundant life with Jesus as their hope. Dr. Lopez also realized that the most effective way to reach this remote population was through the medical-missionary approach. He returned in 2002 and with the help of many volunteers the dream of having a Medical Missionary Clinic became a reality in the town of Machaquila.
 
Through the provision of medical services, our goal is to provide education to improve your quality of life in all areas (physical, mental, social and spiritual). We offer these services at a very low cost, or in some cases none, regardless of their race, beliefs, gender, political or social status. We believe that through medical missionary work we can reach them with love and patience and teach them the principles of our Creator on how to live a healthy and abundant life. Today we have a beautiful building, school and a fertile land where our main objective is to teach, preach and heal. Even the dream is not finished there is much work to be done and will be completed by other faithful missionary workers who share this same challenge to prepare us and prepare others for the second coming of our Lord Jesus.
