Filling Cavities for the Cause of Christ!

What does a diet of drinking coke at every meal and not brushing your teeth get you? Lot’s of pain due to cavities, gum disease, and worse. This is the reality for many people just a few hours over the border. So, as a way to serve the physical needs of the villages our church planting team ministers in we held a dental clinic in our main village, Village CO (this is where our church plant is located). After a few days of training our “dentists” were ready to roll. I was so blessed to lead, organize and oversee the clinic in which we served about 50 people in 2.5 days. Our team all worked great together to love and care for many people who were in a lot of pain. Lot’s of cavities were filled and new relationships built as we sought to couple the compassion of Christ toward physical needs and His greatest act of compassion – the saving work of the gospel.

Below are some pictures from the week:
