Dental missionaries and artist Wayland Moore

At the Emory Healthy Heart Risk Reduction Program, I have a chance to meet scores of giving and talented people.  Dentist Ken McMillan and others regularly make missionary trips to needy areas of the world to provide free dental care.   This year, world-known Atlanta artist Wayland Moore went with McMillan’s team of dentists to a Mexican village about an hour south of San Antonio, Texas.    McMillan told me, “I feel like I’m in the presence of greatness” watching Wayland paint.    The extraordinary man told me he completed 19 sketches during his week-long stay.  Two of them are self portraits with photographs as his models.  McMillan’s group may be the first to make the missionary trip with its own artist.   Here’s Wayland talking about what they did.Dentist McMillan says they’ll be proud to take Wayland and his wife with them next year.. wherever they go on their next mission trip.
