GO DENTAL Ecuador
Join us as we go to the coastal region of Ecuador where Ecuadorian villagers have little or no access to dental care. We will be providing compassionate, pain relieving dental treatment in the name of Jesus. This desperately needed dental care will be provided and made possible by Dentists, Dental hygienists, Dental assistants, Dental technicians, Sterilization technicians and support staff. In addition to needed hands on clinical dentistry, the team will focus on a healthier next generation by providing decay preventing fluoride treatments, tooth sealants, as well as toothbrushes, floss, dietary education and dental home care instructions. Compassion Christian Church partners with Helping Hands across Ecuador and supports the ministry activity in this region of Ecuador.
You do not have to be a licensed medical professional to participate on this team. There are roles for prayer, encouragement and assistance. However, priority will be given to licensed medical professionals of all kinds able to use their skills in a rural, clinical setting.
For more information about this trip please email the team leader, Ellen Patridge at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Note: Applying for a GO Team does not confirm your spot on the team. Once applications have been reviewed, you will be notified of your acceptance or status on a waiting list. If accepted, you will be asked to submit a $100 deposit which will confirm your position on the team.

About Helping Hands Across Ecuador
Helping Hands Across Ecuador is Carlos and Jeanette Guerrero’s life-long commitment to serve and be a witness for the love of Christ to the beautiful people of Ecuador. They organize short-term mission trips which are spiritually fulfilling experiences. Their goal is to help improve the local villlagers’ quality of life and to strengthen their relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ.
Currently, there is no Holy Spirit led church in the towns of Curia and San Jose, Ecuador. Through our partner, Helping Hands Across Ecuador, strives to serve and witness to the local people with the goal of mobilizing the gathering of a local church body in this area.
Working hand-in-hand with the residents of San Jose and Curia, they strive to make a positive difference in the areas of education, hunger and health. Here are the main Helping Hands Across Ecuador projects:
They provide 3-year high school scholarships so students may break the cycle of poverty and tutor children in the community center
They provide seeds and plant vegetable gardens so families can sustain themselves better and provide free weekly dinners to approximately 40 poor community elderly folks.
They erected a Christian Center in San Jose, which hosts our community kitchen and provides the ample space to congregate, learn, and organize events.
