Words can’t describe how excited we are to announce the successful completion of the Scheduling Institute pilot dental mission trip to San Jose, Costa Rica. During their weeklong stay, Dr. John Acosta, Dr. Kennon Curtis, and their three assistants — Allie, Lori, and Michelle — provided dental care for over 125 children! Using playful methods and positive attitudes to help the children — most of whom had never experienced a dental exam — so they feel at ease, they performed composites, crowns, extractions, and other procedures at Abraham Project.

After their trip, Dr. Acosta took a moment to write the following letter to Jay:


Dear Jay,

I just wanted to take a minute to thank you for the opportunity to serve. I hope that my team and I represented the Scheduling Institute well, though I can’t help but think they thought we were loco gringos with our laughing and loud music! As you are well aware personally, there is such a need for many things in Costa Rica. I have felt the call to serve for a while now, but I wasn’t planning to go on a mission trip this year. I was using money as an excuse! When Sherri called me and told me that you wanted me to go and were paying the travel expenses — that was really a much needed kick in the ass! In truth, these children and families served us! From the bottom of my heart, I thank you. You truly are a servant, and a man that stands by his words. I enjoy hanging out with men like you as I think it helps me to be a better man.

Dr. John Acosta
