Dr. Pete Obregon is the product of an American medical mission in the Philippines. His parents were the first converts to the Christian faith in Hollo in the early 1900s.
After graduating from a Baptist university in the Philippines, he had a private practice in Point Pleasant, W.Va., and later in Columbus, Ohio.
While Pete and Judith started two homeless clinics in Columbus, they were dedicated to care for the underserved medical and surgical needs of the poor in the Third World. Their medical mission work included the Philippines, El Salvador, Africa, the Dominican Republic and Mexico.
In 1993, Pete was appointed medical director for the Medical Ministry International for Africa, Asia and Eastern Europe. He left private practice to work full time for the organization.
Since making that life-transforming decision, Pete and Judith have taken 134 medical and surgical teams to 39 countries. Judith has served as project director for many of the missions, and she has taught respiratory therapy techniques to nurses.

Judy and I had a wonderful and humbling weekend when we were inducted into the Medical Mission Hall of Fame at the University of Toledo in Toledo, Ohio. God used us as His vessels for His work and we thank Him for this honor.
Below are three pictures from the ceremony. First is Judy and I accepting the award, the second is the wall plaque at the Hall of Fame and the third is a picture of the 2014 inductees, Dr. and Mrs Bransford, Judy and I, Dr. Conway, the President of the Hall of Fame, Dr. Marchbein of the Doctors without Borders and Dr. McGinnes, Dean of UT College of Medicine. Professionally taken pictures will follow.
Thank you so much for your prayers and support.
Love, Pete and Judy
