The calendar may say that Christmas only comes once a year, but for the patients of Mission of Mercy, Christmas arrives every time our mobile medical van arrives at their clinic site.

That is because in bringing much needed health care, dental care and prescription medications to the those who do not have insurance or cannot afford the premiums or co-pays associated with their insurance, Mission of Mercy embodies the message of Christmas: selfless giving so that others may live.

Our medical staff and volunteers generously give the gift of their time and talents so our patients may have their health restored and their human dignity reaffirmed, just as our Heavenly Father gave us the gift of his only son on Christmas.

It is a privilege to serve those in need and to be surrounded by those who give so freely. May God Bless you all with his peace and love—at Christmas and every day of the year ahead.
