Biography

Felix Martin del Campo Jr. was a Hispanic kid born in East LA.

After growing up in California’s central valley he became a dentist and has used his training to make an impact for Christ around the globe.

Dr. Martin del Campo treated Franklin Graham and his father as patients.  He began serving on the board with the international aid organization, Samaritan’s Purse. An arm of that organization is World Medical Missions which sends out 800 doctors around the world in an effort to relieve long-term missionaries on furlough.

In 1970, Dr. Martin del Campo went to El Salvador on his first short-term mission trip with Samaritan’s Purse. Over nearly 50 years he has gone on mission trips to Vietnam, North Korea, Cambodia, China, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon and Liberia. He’s been to Moldova every year since 2005. 

He still holds his dental practice in Visalia, Calif., but shuts down for two weeks at a time to go all over the world to serve the Lord.

“Dentistry has been a tremendous way to get in the door all over the world,” he said.  “I just want to do what we all should be doing, that is use my vocation to serve the Lord.”
