June 10 - 17, 2017
The first building acquired by the SmileFaith Foundation, was a large warehouse with an
attached office area. With the help of the East Highland Baptist mission
team, Central Baptist mission team, and many others, this warehouse is being
converted into a community recreation center and dental offices. Some of the needed renovations to the
abandoned warehouse included replacing the old roof, demolishing and building
new walls in the interior, and rewiring and replacing light fixtures.
The second building acquired by the SmileFaith Foundation is being converted to a residence area for mission teams that come to the community to provide charitable dental services. The new residence area will include a kitchen, living area and sleeping area to accommodate up to 15 people. The East Highland and Central Baptist mission teams provided assistance by insulating walls, replacing ceiling tiles and installing paneling in the basement area. The mission teams also built walls, hung sheetrock, and insulated the ceiling in the ground level of the residence area.
Near the end of the trip, a four
member volunteer dental team arrived at the SmileFaith Foundation Dental facility. This volunteer dental team provided free
dental services to 13 patients and had three professions of faith. The East Highland/Central Baptist mission
team was so humbled and blessed to see their efforts pay off when those
individuals received help with their physical needs, but most importantly, their
spiritual needs were met.
Kingdom Builders next trip is scheduled for June 9-16, 2018. The location is yet to be determined, but God knows where there is a need. If you would like to be a part of such a life changing mission trip, please be in prayer and plan on going.
YOU WILL BE BLESSED!!
