I tell you the truth, he will certainly not lose his reward.”
The Mission Trip of 2017 was the most productive in numbers, by distributing 1450 pairs of glasses, 850 pairs of prescription sunglasses to more than 1300 patients. We also distributed over 1500 Bibles and religious reading materials to non-believers. Additionally we provided more than 250 pairs of reading glasses to a small church near Sibiu (Romania). In collaboration with the Churches from Cisnadie and Sibiu, Romania, we had the privilege of sharing the Gospel through the volunteers that came along us (Americans, Romanians).
We had the opportunity to visit different villages and cities in Romania such as Pescari, Sibiu and Olanesti. By God’s grace we saw patients from long-term care facilities, orphanages, churches and various people in need of glasses. Totally, there were 1150 consultations, with 1350 prescription glasses and 650 sunglasses donated.
In June 2015 we were invited by one of the local churches to serve the people of Rosarito, Mexico. We had the opportunity to share the Gospel through the volunteers that came along us (Americans, Mexicans, Romanians) by distributing 700 pairs of glasses, 40 new frames to 800 patients.
