Ministry Description
The mission of Medical Ambassadors International is to, "Transforming nations through the seamless combination of disease prevention, evangelism, and community development. Under the Lordship of Jesus Christ, we mobilize, equip and motivate Christians throughout the world to minister in a balanced manner to both the physical and spiritual needs of a languishing and lost world. We train nationals to help those in need through preventive and healing medicine, demonstrating God's love in a practical way. Just as importantly, through the integrated ministry of community health, we enable nationals to conduct active evangelism, discipleship and church planting.

LifeWind, Medical Ambassadors International's development program, is known throughout the world as CHE (Community Health Evangelism). CHE empowers communities to overcome poverty, disease and hopelessness by mobilizing their God-given potential and available resources. The CHE strategy is used by people serving with over 250 organizations in more than 80 countries worldwide. It is a simple yet comprehensive approach, adaptable to a wide range of urban and rural cultural contexts.
