Lauren Buczkowski ~ Today was another tiring day of work. Many kids and adults got their teeth extracted, and I assisted the dentists. Again, it was incredible to see how tough the kids were during treatment. As we walk to and from the clinic, kids grab onto our hands and are in awe of our presence there. It’s an amazing feeling to be here helping these grateful children every day.
Stephanie Braun ~ Happy Valentines Day!! Today was day three in the clinic and we started at 8 and finished at 5 again. It started sprinkling and then pouring in Seguin, therefore all of our patients had super muddy feet. We had some great music on, and the dentists were singing and dancing; loving your American tunes. This little boy came up and gave me a kiss, and it was so cute. All of the young children love to smile and hold your hand. The cooks in the rectory even made us some delicious cookies for dessert tonight!
Anna Babkowski ~ My 7th trip here, but I’m always amazed of the beauty of the area as if it were my first. People welcome us here always with smiles, waves and even hugs. Every morning I get up early. I sit on the porch drinking my coffee just looking at the landscape of Segiun. Ten minutes of that meditation, and I’m ready for a new day. Hustle and bustle starts here early, that includes donkeys and rosters.
Day three in clinic, things are going quite well. Our mission this year is to see and screen as many school kids as we can, do teeth cleanings, fluoride, and restorations. Our dental doctors’ team is working hard, quite nice and caring people. I’m seeing a lot of progress in dental hygiene, not so many extractions, and quite a few fillings that need to be done. Over all we are heading in the right direction. I’m very thankful for all the prayers that were sent our way. Happy Valentine day, my friends! Crisna made us cookies 🙂
