Birgid Faber - Dialogue With an Adventist Orthodontist in Germany

"As an orthodontist I work with children, who usually come with their parents. This allows me to draw their attention to the gospel, for example, by putting a certain kind of literature in our waiting room. We live in quite a religious area, with different Christian denominations and a strong pietistic influence. When I encourage the children to join their youth groups or to go on Christian outings I often find a prepared and fertile soil. On many occasions I have spiritual discussions with their parents. I am always happy to not only treat the children in order to ensure for them nicely arranged teeth and raise their self-confidence, but also to have the possibility of telling them and their parents about their need for God's presence in their lives."
