Providing Medical Care Where There Are No Doctors
Over the years HEA’s Medical Missions were led by Dr. JD Blackburn of Community Bible Church, San Antonio Texas … Dr. Blackburn made many trips into Mexico over the years to serve with different ministries and to give of his life in helping others where there were no doctors … Dr Blackburn went on to be with the Lord and we all, friends & family miss his smile and laughter so much! Dr. Blackburn was a dear friend to Greg, Michele, and the entire HEA Staff. He left his mark on all of our hearts! We miss you so Dr. B …
On behalf of the entire HEA Staff and of the Doctors, Dentists, & nurses who gave of themselves over the years to help others where there were no doctors we dedicate this page to you dear friend … Doctor JD Blackburn …
We just could not see ourselves doing the medical clinics in remote mountain communities without Dr Blackburn so we did not schedule any during his extended sickness nor since his passing. I know that he would have wanted us to continue what was dear to his heart … helping those where there are no doctors and boldly preaching the love of Jesus to all who came. Their needs were always so heartbreaking that it would bring us all to tears.
We will continue … We will be returning with medical missions teams to the very remote villages, where most of our churches & missions are, to serve the most desperate … in the remote areas, where there are no doctors and hope seems so far out of reach!
HEA Medical Missions also provides urgently needed medical care (when financially possible) to our full time supported Native Missionary Evangelists and their families as well as to our Native Support Staff.
With your help we have been able to help provide for them as they deal with everything from simple medical tests, all the way to strokes, cancer and at one point, a brain surgery. As we are able, we try very hard to help our Native Missionaries and their families in their time of need.
They sometimes feel there is no hope but with your help we provide them hope. It is a physical as well as a spiritual battle that they face every day as they press into the harvest.
