Scott and Susie had been waiting in Chad a long time. Over eleven years, in fact. Praying and waiting. Working and praying and waiting. Drilling wells, teaching hygiene, holding dental and medical clinics, sharing the Word…and waiting on God for that miracle when someone would choose to follow Jesus.
What would it be like to have no dentist available to relieve the pain of infected or rotting teeth?
In Bardai, a village in northwestern Chad in the heart of the Sahara, residents know what it’s like to live with tooth pain for years on end. When American dentist Dr. Kevin Ackerman made his first dental clinic trip to Chad in 2002, there were no trained dentists in the entire country. In Bardai, a five-hour MAF flight from the capital, a trained dentist is still non-existent.
