In response to multiple requests, DCF has planned its first short term dental mission trip to southern Nicaragua in July.  Tola is on the Pacific coast of Nicaragua north of San Juan del Sur, and is known for some of the best surf beaches in Nicaragua. This is located only a short distance from the surf beaches along the Pacific.  We will be partnering with local churches in the Nicaragua alongside other team members from James Island Christian Church and CityChurch.

The plan is to depart Charleston on the 9th of July, returning on either the 16th or 17th depending upon how much “beach time” is desired.  The goal of the trip is to render dental care to those in need, support the work of the local church and to enjoy the beauty of Nicaragua.
