Rafiki, Nigeria 2009

Dental Mission Trip to Rafiki, Nigeria

I had the privilege of returning to the Rafiki Village Nigeria for three weeks in December 2009 to provide preventive dental care for the children and National staff.

It was a joy to reconnect with the children and staff and to see the improvement in oral hygiene. I was able to see 183 people for cleanings and fluoride applications this time around.

It was amazing to share the special Christmas celebrations with these precious children who have so little but are so happy. The focus is not on the stuff, but on the Lord Jesus Christ!

I asked each child what their favorite thing about Christmas was and they all said “that Jesus is born!” I can’t wait to return.
