BRING THE GIFT OF VISION TO SOUTHEAST ASIA
The eye is the lamp of the body. If your eyes are healthy, your whole body will be full of light. Matthew 6:22
Kingdom Workers has an exciting opportunity for volunteers with experience in eye health!
Help with the eye program happening in Southeast Asia. This fall, hundreds of people will be receiving eye exams. If glasses are needed, they will be made and delivered on a subsequent trip in January or February of 2017. During this trip, volunteers will work with a local expert to help fit glasses, give instructions on how to care for them, and be involved in eye health education seminars.
Bringing the gift of vision will be an incredible blessing for our brothers and sisters in Southeast Asia. Children will have the opportunity to learn better in school, adults will become more productive – and all will be able to more clearly observe God's creation and read His Word
