RFD returns to Guatemala!
Dr. Wall and Brittney South traveled to Guatemala from February 15-22 with Madison Street United Methodist Church through Volunteers in Mission. This is the second year that a Madison Street group has volunteered in Guatemala, this year with the Boca Costa Medical Mission in Chocolá, Guatemala. Much of the group worked to construct a house for the mission’s doctor and his family, and Dr. Wall’s wife Anne and several other volunteers created and delivered educational materials to the children in Chocolá on topics like dental health, English language learning, and Bible stories. Dr. Wall, Brittney, and their team worked out of the mission hospital to provide emergency dental care to about 75 patients of all ages.
