Dr. Curtis, I just wanted to send an email and share a little with you about our mission trip to Niger, Africa. In the eye clinic we saw 1,000 patients in 7 days!! Beth, Kent, and myself refracted the patients and Shelia along with some local missionaries fitted the Nigerians with the glasses. We had a great experience and we saw lots of conjunctivitis and cataracts. We even had a boy come in who was blind in one eye and with the other eye he couldn’t even see food on a plate that was right in front of him. Through prayer and God’s help, we were able to give him a pair of glasses that allowed him to see out of the one eye. I wanted to make sure he could see so I borrowed a coin from a lady and dropped it on the ground. He was able to walk over and pick up the coin from the ground! It brought tears to our eyes and joy in our hearts to know that we had changed his life forever! The Nigerians were so happy that we were able to give them the gift of sight. After we finished with the patients, we sent them to the local pastors so that they may pray with them and get their information that allows them to follow up with them. However, I was blessed enough to have a conversation with the lady pictured below and she accepted Christ right there with us!! So cool!! We are so thankful to you for teaching us the skills to be able to refract these people or give them medication to heal the infections. Your seminar definitely has equipped us and prepared us to be able to give these people their sight back. This was our second year having the eye clinic and it overflows our hearts with joy as we see the looks on the Nigerians faces and the hugs we receive from them are priceless!! God used us in many ways and I just wanted to share a few of those with you. Thank you again for your obedience to Him and your passion to continue to spur us on to go on these trips and give the gift of sight and the gift of hope in our Lord Jesus Christ to people all over the world! May God continue to bless you, your family, and your business abundantly!! For His Glory,
