Working with Volunteers in Mission!
Dr. Wall traveled to Guatemala from February 16-23 with Madison Street United Methodist Church through Volunteers in Mission. The Madison Street group is one of 6 Methodist groups that volunteered this year at the La Toma school in Nuahualate, San Antonio, a remote area about an hour east of Mazatenango. While much of the group worked to construct three additional classrooms for the school, Dr. Wall provided emergency dental care for patients in Nuahualate. Dr. Wall’s office was in a local church led by Pastor Felix, and the patients were coordinated by the pastor’s wife, Aurora. Dr. Wall served about 75 patients from February 18-21.
