Ghana Eye Clinic – Day 5

November 22, 2013 at 4:13 pm 1 comment


What a week it’s been!  Today we wrapped up the last day at the eye clinic with a bang.  We saw 465 people, sharing the gospel with every one of them, and we gave away 355 pairs of glasses.  This brings us to a grand total of 1,829 people seen and 1,420 pairs of glasses given away for the week!  God has blessed us during this trip mightily!

To all of you who have been praying for us throughout the course of this week:  thank you.  You have been a tremendous support for us, even from thousands of miles away.  Tomorrow, we will head down to the Ghana coast to see a castle that was once used for holding slaves.  It is sure to be a memorable and reflective experience.  Sunday morning, we will worship here in Accra and then Sunday night, we will begin our journey home!  We appreciate your prayers for the remainder of our time in Ghana and for our travels home.

One more time, here are some pictures from our day!


This was our trip to the clinic each morning. And I thought San Antonio roads could get bumpy!

It began as another busy morning! There were more people lined up waiting for us to begin the clinic today than there were yesterday.

In addition to glasses, we also gave away crosses. Each of the colored beads reminds us of a key part of the faith. Black = sin. Red = Jesus’ blood. Blue = faith. White = holiness. Green = growth in Christ. Yellow = eternity.

Each evening, we would eat supper at the Baptist House, a place that hosts missionaries and other foreign travelers. There, we met a precious girl named Tyra. We looked forward to seeing her each night!


Tyra helps us sing a Concordia classic!

This is our team from this week. Soli Deo Gloria! All to the glory of God alone!

    Wonderful work that ya’ll are doing. God is certainly blessing your efforts. Thanks for the pictures. It brings it home so much better for us to understand . God also blessed me, and I am cancer free as of this moment at least until I get the next PET scan. Love in Christ,
