Dental Mission Trip to Guatemala
I just took my first dental mission trip with Hearts in Motion. God called me to Guatemala.
My friend, Marj Olason has asked me to go with her for the past 11 years and the door has always felt closed. This time God paved the way beautifully and everything fell in place for me to go.
I have been blessed by so many of the people of Guatemala. Their kindness surpassed the language barrier and the childrens’ smiles are etched in my memories forever.
The decay we saw was endless. The miracle I saw was that not one child I looked at had any signs of an abcess.
We placed flouride varnish treatments on almost 500 children. We pray that the prevention process has begun in the country of Guatemala and I hope to return there to do more.
