“Our most memorable patient was a 9 month old baby girl, who was born with cloudy corneas and glaucoma in both eyes. I was able to provide the child with a new cornea in her right eye, and Dr. Smith performed glaucoma surgery in her left eye. Both surgeries were successful and this child now has at least a fighting chance to see. ”

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.
