While we were in the States, we received 3 boxes of donated eye glasses to give out to the people here. It is almost impossible to get glasses here and many people have vision problems. We have informed the eye doctor here in Lichinga that we have glasses for those that need them. When he sees people, he gives them a script with their prescription number and then they come to us and we give them the eye glasses. They must have a script to receive them. We have already seen quite a few people and even all the doctors in the hospital have come by for a pair.
We are also awaiting an intern, Beth from our home church, who will be with us for 3 months. We are getting things ready for her arrival and preparing.
|Here are the kids trying on some of the glasses.|
|This is one of our first recipients of the glasses, Abubaka. He is a pastor in Meponda (the village on the lake).|
|The glasses come in all shapes and sizes. Here are some of our favs.|
|I've never had a thumb sucker before, but Jurnee loves her thumb. She has been sleeping through the night, so I think maybe its not such a bad thing.|
|And she is full of smiles.|
|This is on Mother's day. Our director, Janice had some of us mothers over for dinner and here are all the kids. God has blessed our kids with plenty of friends.|
