SAMOA – A side trip to Sauniatu
They performed checkups and fluoride varnishes and did a number of extractions at the end of the second day. Normally that’s probably not a good idea, but they felt they couldn’t leave several of the kids suffering and in constant pain when they knew they could help them… There were no complications and no tears. They told the children (mostly LDS) how brave they were: like “stripling warriors”. Roger Roth asked them if their dad or grandpa’s name was “Helaman”? They just smiled!
The school principal and the Stake President each were excited about the Dental DVD that was produced by the Public Affairs missionaries (see it on our Website – CLICK HERE). It will be used in the Relief Societies and at school with the parents. They will return to the small island for a fireside on the DVD that is in English and Samoan.
The clinic in Samoa sees a steady stream of pre-missionaries in preparation for the submission of their papers. They have treated and cared for many of the young missionaries, the senior missionaries, and Samoa Temple workers. So many non-LDS people have been served as well and are indeed grateful to be able to utilize such a wonderful facility without the worry of payment.
