I never expected to love looking into people's mouths so much. Ever since Luke began teaching a dental class here at CFM, I have been an eager student. A portion of nearly every day of the past three weeks has been spent learning, practicing, and actually filling cavities. Last week was a marathon as we filled (or extracted) the students' teeth. Their gratefulness is touching. What a joy it is to serve...

The makeshift dental clinic.
We're starting mobile clinics now, which is even more enjoyable! I'll post pictures of that later.

Ah! This post made me smile. It reminded me of my first mission trip. I went to Mexico with a group from our church, led by a dentist and his wife. The dentist asked me to be his assitent, and I agreed. Neither of us were quite sure how I'd handle it once I got there, since my first experience was at our makeshift clinic in Mexico – but it all turned out to be an adventure and I thoroughly enjoyed it. Maybe sometime I'll try and learn more from Tim since he's our resident dentist at WPY. :-) Blessings!
