There are many health needs, but dental health takes a back burner a lot of the times according to one local dental care provider. Dublin First Baptist Church hosted the Baptist State Convention of North Carolina’s Medical – Dental Center this past Saturday, February 25th, 2016.
The Medical/Dental Bus Ministry of NCBM began in 1989 to help physical and spiritual needs in North Carolina communities. NC Baptist Men (Baptists On Mission) offer the use of the mobile medical/dental units to Baptist churches, other Christian denominations, and service organizations within North Carolina who wish to reach out to people in need according to the Baptist Men of North Carolina’s website.
The mission was scheduled from 8:30 a.m. until 4:00 p.m. at the local church. According to the church’s Women’s Mission Union (WMU) Director, Mrs. Jenny Kirby, patients were at the church waiting at close to 5:00 am and a total of 37 people registered.
“It really meets a need.” Jenny Kirby, WMU Director. “I wish we could help them all,” Kirby continued.
