Free dental clinic a success – Pastor

The free dental clinic hosted by Harvest Bible Chapel, St Vincent and the Grenadines from January 15 to 18 was a “resounding success”, senior Pastor Al Blake said.{{more}}

During the four days, some 460 persons received dental treatment, which included extractions and cleaning and x-rays.

The team comprised dentists and hygienists from Harvest Bible Chapel, Peoria in the United States of America (USA) and Harvest Bible Chapel St Vincent.

Some 25 volunteers from Harvest Bible Chapel St Vincent and members of the local nursing fraternity also participated in the exercise.

Volunteers were on hand to pray for and with those attending.

Blake said it was a privilege to be able to meet the spiritual and physical needs of those attending the clinics.

He further said the church was intentional about telling persons that their spiritual condition was of utmost importance to God.

One lady summed it up this way: “I can see now that I am not just here because my teeth needed work, but because my heart needed to be worked upon.”

The church donated a quantity of dental health supplies to the Calliaqua and Georgetown clinics.

Dr Rochelle King received the supplies on behalf of the Ministry of Health.

Harvest Bible Chapel was launched in 2010 and meets at the International Aquatic Club, Villa at 10 a.m. on Sundays. One of its aims is helping people to worship, walk and work for Christ.

Blake stated that a series of events is slated to take place in the near future, including various seminars, a youth camp and a men’s event.

“We are continuing the vision of making disciples who are excited about making other disciples”, he said.
