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.      


Caitlin Dahmer

Samachique, Chihuahua, MexicoCertified Nurse Midwife - Hospital Mision Tarahumara

Caitlin is a Certified Nurse Midwife (CNM) who is honored to begin serving at Hospital Mision Tarahumara in the northern Sierra Madre mountains of Mexico. Tarahumara women have one of the world's highest rates of maternal and infant mortality. They live in remote villages dispersed across the Copper Canyon region of Chihuahua and their lives are shaped by tremendous need and lack of resources. Caitlin feels God has been preparing and leading her specifically to this location for years.
She first sensed God's call while in nursing school at Calvin College. She went on to complete her graduate studies at the University of Michigan to become a nurse midwife. After graduation, the Lord led her to work at Lawndale Christian Health Center, where she has been faithfully serving the impoverished neighborhoods of Chicago's west side for five years.
Now as she looks to transition to Hospital Mision Tarahumara, she is excited to build relationships, invest, serve, and do her part in bringing about God's Kingdom to an indigenous people that do not know the Lord. She hopes that through her partnership with this hospital and Christian Health Service Corps, the Tarahumara people will come to know the saving grace and steadfast love of our Lord Jesus Christ both individually and eventually as a community.

MexicoClinical Nurse Specialist & Registered Nurse - Hospital Tarahumara

The Madalinski’s are excited to serve in the Sierra Madre Mountains of Northern Mexico. Over the years the Lord has nurtured a deep compassion in Walt and Adriana’s hearts for the poor and needy. This compassion led them to serve the underprivileged here in the US and to serve on short-term trips around the world. It was on one of these trips in 2012 that Walt, an engineer from Texas, and Adriana, a nurse from Canada, met. Over their eleven months in Guatemala the Lord brought them together and they married at the end of that year. The Lord then led Walt out of engineering and into medical training for long-term missions. A visit in January 2019 to Mission Hospital Tarahumara in Samachique confirmed the call God has placed on their lives and their desire to serve there.

Amanda Metcalf

HondurasNurse Practitioner - Jungle Hospital

In February 2018, I went on my first mission trip to Honduras. It was then God put a fire in my heart to return and serve His people. I soon returned to Honduras in August 2018, and it was then God confirmed His call for me to serve His people in the medical mission field. I am currently a Licensed Family Nurse Practitioner (FNP) with almost 2 years of retail health experience and plan on pursuing my Doctor's of Nursing in the future. I have also worked as a Sexual Assault Nurse (SANE) for 4 years. Before becoming an FNP, I worked as a critical care nurse and clinical preceptor in a pediatric emergency room for several years. My previous job before then was working on an adult medical/surgical floor. Working on the medical/surgical floor was my first job out of nursing school. I look forward to spreading God’s love through healthcare at the Jungle Hospital in Honduras!

Natalia Suits

HondurasRegistered Nurse - Loma de Luz Hospital

The Lord wooed my heart to missions at an early age. Raised in Spain in a loving missionary family, I spoke Spanish and I saw the impact of Christ’s love on people’s lives. However it wasn’t till I was 11 when we were returning to the US, that I came to know the Lord for myself. The prospect of returning to my “home” country, culture, school, and friends I didn’t know was overwhelming, and God, in His great love, became the one constant in my life which I’ve treasured ever since. On graduating from high school, my choice of career proved easy - one that would be of use overseas! I trained as an RN and then took a diploma of nursing in tropical medicine at the Liverpool School of Tropical Medicine in the UK. I have always enjoyed interacting with other cultures and have loved the opportunities over the past decade to take Jesus’ love to Central America, Eastern Europe and East Africa. I am excited to now be taking the step of serving long-term in Honduras at Loma de Luz.
