Drs. Willy & Jessee Bustinza


Willy and Jessee Bustinza are a general surgeon and pediatrician team serving with CHSC at Hospital Misión Tarahumara, a Christian mission hospital in Mexico’s remote Copper Canyon. Together with their daughters Lucy and Caroline, the Bustinzas serve the Tarahumara indigenous community. The Tarahumara are a tribe of approximately 100,000 people who are virtually unreached by the Gospel. Willy and Jessee originally met in the Andes Mountains of Peru at the ages of 3 and 5. Their parents worked together to establish a Christian school for impoverished children called “El Pionero.” The Bustinzas felt God’s call to medical missions during their teen years. They initially received training as a pediatric ICU nurse (Jessee) and biomedical engineer (Willy), then went on to complete their medical education at Oklahoma State University in Tulsa, OK. Following completion of their residency training, the Bustinzas moved to Mexico as a part of the Samaritan’s Purse Post-Residency Program. During their term with Samaritan’s Purse, they established a pediatric malnutrition program and developed a medical education department for the hospital. The Bustinzas are excited to continue to serve God in Mexico as a part of the CHSC family. Through medical care, their desire is to introduce the Tarahumara people to the Creator God who is not distant, but rather who loves and cares for them.

Yet a deeper threat than the dry fields are feelings of hopelessness and the people’s fear of curses. Often, even more than their material poverty, these factors prevent the Tarahumara from advancing to a healthier way of life.
