Utah Dental Convention

We finished the Utah Dental Convention Friday afternoon. We made some wonderful connections. So many people who had been on expeditions with us came to our booth and we relived their exciting adventures. It is so amazing to be around such great people who know how to serve and love others. It enlivens the soul!

Our next adventure will be to Tijuana in a couple of weeks.
