I knew God had a plan for my life, but I was afraid to commit to overseas mission work. I kept running into Linda Ellis, our Executive Secretary for Lighthouse at every eye meeting I attended. A few years ago at one such meeting I said to her, “I wonder if God is trying to tell me something?” She said, “What do you think?” Since then, I’ve volunteered three times at the Eye Centre in Kenya and now serve on the Board of Directors. It has literally changed my life! Careful, it will change yours too.
