We seek to show Christ’s compassion by meeting the medical, dental, housing, and spiritual needs of the poor and needy of Mexico.
Real Life Ministries is a Christian organization dedicated to spreading Christ’s love to the poor and needy of Mexico. Following Christ’s example, RLM strives to meet both physical and spiritual needs. RLM meets physical needs by providing professional medical and dental care to the indigent and by building permanent homes for those without shelter. RLM meets spiritual needs by sharing the gospel of the Lord Jesus Christ and teaching biblical principles for godly living.
Our vision is clear: impact the communities around us with the saving grace of Jesus Christ. This simple vision involves many avenues of ministry. In each, we strive to spread the love of Jesus and the true gospel, free to all who choose to listen and obey. We believe our role in Mexico and in the world is to equip, train, help, and evangelize those whom the Lord puts before us.
Our vision includes establishing partnerships with local churches, ministry organizations, and government. Cultivating these relationships allows us to achieve maximum impact in Mexico. We love and embrace the vibrant culture of Mexico; we seek to help the people of Mexico, not change their rich traditions and culture.
Real Life Ministries was founded in 1972 by Ken and Beverly Small and Dr. Hazael and Maru Hatchett. The first clinic – “Clinica Filadelfia” – opened in Mexico City that same year.
