    Greetings from Guatemala, June 2012. What a blessing it was to be called by Hearts in Motion and God to serve the people of Guatemala once again. This was a two week trip and I had the privilege of working with two different teams who were doing construction as well as VBS (Vacation Bible School).

    Recently I took a trip to Guatemala.This was my second time there and I had no fears or expectations. I just wanted to wait and see what the Lord had to show me and teach me this year. I found the love of God in the children of Guatemala.

    The dental team to Roatan treated 436 children in 4 days. All of this was done in 4 days with a team of 17 people in 100% humidity. The cold showers at night were a welcome relief from the long hot days.

    The decay we saw was endless. The miracle was that not one child had any signs of an abcess. We placed flouride varnish treatments on almost 500 children.

    Another amazing trip with HIM (Hearts in Motion) to Guatemala. I was part of an extensive plastic surgery team, a medical team and a dental team. We were able to bring the fluoride varnish program to over 800 kids. It is impossible to capture on camera the joy that I saw on the faces of the people.

    I was part of an amazing Hearts in Motion (HIM) team that traveled to Roatan, Honduras in September. This was my 12th dental mission trip and my first experience with Hearts in Motion. While I knew no one on the team and was the only dental person, I knew God had called me to go.
