It is a pleasure to have the opportunity to serve and minister to those in need. Had a patient who shared and made it clear she was in a lot of emotional turmoil; experiencing loneliness, fear and distress due to many negative circumstances in her life. Without judgement I was able to listen to her story, talk with and encourage her. We also had a powerful prayer…all this along with her teeth cleaning! She left with a new spring in her step and hope in her heart – ready to face life with some new found courage to trust in the Lord with all her heart ❤️. She was very grateful!! It’s so fun to watch God work! He is so good.

Thank you so much to everyone who helped this program work. I had my front teeth cavities filled that I have lived with for years because it’s just too expensive to fix. I can now smile for the camera, it is changing my life lifting my confidence in my appearance. MAY THE LORD BLESS EVERYONE FOR THIS WONDERFUL SERVICE.

In my 37 years of being a dentist it has always been a passion of mine to help others. God gave me a certain skill set and I want to continue to use it as long as I’m able. From when I was a student dentist to all the years I spent overseas it has only increased my desire I’ve done hundreds of these clinics over the years and each one is special and I always look forward to the next one. – Marlin M, Volunteer
Thank you so much for your service! I had a major cavity filled, teeth cleaned and sorely needed glasses ordered. I have ever had a better overall experience at a dental office. This event was just superb. Whom ever is responsible for selecting the right Volunteer for their particular role did an excellent job. Thanks again!!!! – Jerry L, Patient
Dear Doctors and Adventists,
Thank you so much for offering me help with dental issues. I also appreciate the information you gave out. Happy Holidays! – Karen T, Patient
I welcome the opportunity to volunteer in Portland this year. I visited the clinic last year when everything was in full swing. The Clinic was filled with spirit-filled, caring/nonjudgmental vibrations while ministering to the individuals seeking health care. The Clinic served several hundred people with profound grace and dignity. – Jacqueline J, Volunteer
 My heartfelt thank you to you and AMEN for delivering my bifocal glasses! It is very very wonderful to have a new pair of glasses that will be worn proudly. Already people complimented on the frames and inquired where I purchased them. My response: (Portland Adventist Community Services) Impact Your Health Portland Free Clinic! I give AMEN high marks. Patience is a virtue. I am forever grateful for your August health fair. – Peggy M, Patient
