Candace and Randy Stripling
Dental Assistant and MacGyver
This power couple is tireless! They have gone on four trips with DFA, in addition to over 25 missions they have volunteered on with other organizations since 1999. Candace and Randy have been to Comitancillo and El Remate with DFA; through their other “voluntourism” travels they have volunteered in Nicaragua, Mexico, Honduras, Jordan, Granada, Costa Rica, Ecuador and Peru. Candace, a registered dental assistant, works as an assistant in Guatemala and also helps keep the supply trays fully stocked and the supplies organized. Randy is an electrician and serves as a MacGyver with DFA, being an all-around handyman and truck driver.
Both Randy and Candace got involved with DFA through Candace’s job with Chew Chew Pediatric Dentistry in Calgary. Being the mission trip junkies that they are, they also attended DFA fundraisers prior to working with Brad.
There are too many favourite memories to even start, but the smiles and appreciation of the patients when their work is completed is what stands out the most to us.
