Dr. Steve Albright and his wife, Paula Cipolla have been making the trek to Guatemala to provide dentistry to the masses for the past 12 years — bringing school supplies, toiletries, children’s clothing and underwear to distribute in their take home goodie bags. When they’re in Raxruhá, Alta Verapaz, the area’s host church sells tickets for the equivalent of $1 each to see the physician or the dentist until the tickets run out.
