Operation Ecuador — June 2011

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.
