    Hygienists Amanda Lester and Sara McCollum work with a dental patient at a recent clinic at Guilford Baptist Church in Greensboro.

    Many patients arrived before midnight to spend the night so they would be sure to get seen through the clinic.
     
    Eighty-nine patients received physical dental care for cleanings, fillings and extractions along with the spiritual evangelistic care from GBC volunteers as they shared the healing message of Jesus Christ. 
     
    “We thank you for all you do said Joseph, Pamela and Brenda who took the time to give us a handwritten note. “We felt your spirit when we walked into this church.  God bless you and we love you for caring for us.”
     
    While waiting, patients watched Christian movies and were given snacks, beverages and lunch.
     
    Eighty-one New Testament Bibles (English and Spanish) were given to patients before they left, along with hygiene kits with follow-up care information about other dental clinics in our area. 
     
    One patient who was seen on Friday offered to come back Saturday as an interpreter with the Spanish-speaking patients. He expressed interest in being involved in future clinics as a way to “give back.”
     
    The clinic was coordinated through Baptists on Mission, also known as North Carolina Baptist Men.
