We had another great day here in San Juan de la Maguana. We went to our other program in Las Canoas to provide dental services to the children. We treated 81 children today and like yesterday, we educated them on brushing and flossing techniques. We extracted teeth on about 25 % of the children and they all felt so much better after leaving.
One girl Erianny, 11 years old had terrible pain, but was afraid to have her tooth pulled. We spoke to her mom and she told us that she had been up the last two nights crying in pain. The girl finally agreed after speaking to her mom and thankfully she will not be up with that pain tonight.
The last two days have been long and the team has worked so hard. I am proud to be associated with this team and this ministry. God has blessed us and I look forward to many years of serving Him. The children truly understand that it is the love of Christ that brings us down here to love on them.
