2016-12 Great News For the Philippines!

In the last few months, the Philippines Area has set up a Dentist office that has a dentist and his wife, Elder and Sister Stewart, who screen and treat as many of the missionaries in the Manila MTC as they can before they leave for their missions.  They also help treat any necessary cases of the missionaries during their missions that can't be handled correctly in their own areas.  They have a wonderful set up in the basement of the MTC.

Elder and Sister Stewart are literal angels!  They have to beg Elder Stewart to take time for lunch.  He is always trying to help just one more person.  He is very compassionate, gentle and understands the need for pain medication (which is not generally understood here in the Philippines).  I know, because he got to do a root canal for me and for Sister Jacobsen the same time.  :)  We are SO grateful for them!
