In early November a ServLife team from Texas traveled to Eastern Nepal to offer dental services. They arrived in the village of Chouphal and were greeted by ServLife’s Eastern Nepal Coordinator, Pastor Kuber Gurung, and local Pastor Bhim Rai. Originally from India, Texan dentist Dr. Jayakumar Samuel served an average of 4 patients per hour, performing cleanings and extractions.
The second day the team traveled to the city of Dharan with Pastor Gurung and operated out of his church’s building. In both locations the team served alongside local volunteers and leaders to efficiently treat as many patients as possible.
Patient Becshy Chandhang expressed his gratitude, “I have not had my teeth cleaned for 40 years before today. Thank you.”
