Today was one of the most amazing foreign mission days we have ever had! We were blessed to be able to provide dental services to our entire group of children in Valla Hondito. Our hearts were filled with so much joy to see the little smiling faces looking to us for help with their hurting teeth. Serving these children was exactly what God wanted for this team today and He blessed the team as much as the children. Along with the dentistry, we threw in lots of hugs and kisses.
We educated the children and some of the parents on proper brushing and flossing techniques to have healthier teeth in the future. Unfortunately, about 30% of the children needed to have 1 or 2 teeth pulled due to irreverseable damage and decay. One child, Daniel, was a critical case. He had a very bad abcess that could have led to the closing of his airway. If it was only for that child it was worth it.
