Team 4Eyes went to serve the people of El Por Venir, a small village in the mountainous western region of Honduras. Over the course of four days, 535 people were given prescription distance glasses, near glasses, or sunglasses, depending on their needs. The team members were Katherine and Kory Cummings, LeeAnn Finch, and Lisa Kile.
A group from Southside Church of Christ in Fort Worth, Texas, joined with doctors, nurses and other volunteers from churches in Oklahoma, Colorado and Washington for a medical mission trip to the Cayapas River in Ecuador. The Fort Worth team’s purpose was to provide vision screening, eyeglasses and sunglasses to villagers around the Kumanii Christian Center, a mission outreach center owned by the Operation Ecuador Foundation. We also worked with local church missionaries from the Quito School of Biblical Studies to help educate villagers about hygiene and sanitation, while also sharing the good news of Jesus Christ.
