SAN MARTIN, AZCATEPEC, STATE OF MEXICO -- Just outside of Mexico City lie open fields that have been cleared, plowed, and before long they will be planted with corn, but eventually they will be sold and turned into new developments to help house the growing population of the suburbs around Mexico City where more than 22 million people live and work. 
Next door to these fields sits a church that is plowing, planting, and preparing in a different way.

Baby Sebastian getting a checkup at the ASELSI Clinic

The baby boy was only 20 days old, but he was so weak and dehydrated that doctors said he probably had less than two days to live.

That was the prognosis of Dr. Veni Gupta when he visited Sebastian Nehemías. The little baby only weighed four pounds and his skin was limp and saggy over his tiny frame.

Dr. Veni along with a team of medical personnel from the University of Missouri and a doctor from Pennsylvania, were holding a rural clinic in the village of Xeabáj outside of Chichicastenango. They had come to help ASELSI provide four days of medical care in rural Guatemala.
