Serving health needs in remote communities enables a demonstration of God’s love in both word and deed.
The health ministry in Brazil includes both dental care and a mobile unit that provides general health services to those in need.
The dental clinic, which is located on site, provides dental care services at greatly reduced prices for the community of Itaperuçu (the immediate community where the mission is located), and to surrounding communities as well. All of the children registered at Mount Horeb’s school receive a free yearly dental examination and are educated in how to maintain good oral health. Children from needy homes receive fillings free of charge, and toothbrushes are also supplied to all the school children for free.
Dental and health teams also serve the rural community in Caçador where we have built a school for Grades 1, 2, & 3.
