As we approach the 50th anniversary of Lighthouse for Christ we want to remember the people who have pulled us through from the beginning, as well as celebrating the many patients we have had the privilege to serve and save through Christ’s name. Throughout the years, Lighthouse has grown, starting with Dr. Bill Ghrist. Dr. Dean Larson, a close friend of Bill Ghrist sold his practice in the States after Bill’s passing, and for the next 16 years, he kept the Lighthouse for Christ Eye Center open and growing. Starting in 2000, excellent Kenyan Ophthalmologists have overseen and directed the eye clinic. First Dr. Dan Kiage, and then in 2005 Dr. Ibrahim Matende stepped in. Fall 2017, we welcomed Dr. Fredrick Korir as Medical Director.  Every year the Lord has led more and more patients to our steps; now we see over 30,000 patients a year. As this year comes to a close we look back and thank everyone for their support, faith, and the love they have given to us here at Lighthouse.

“We learned that the Lord could do His work in the midst of few or many.” -Dr. William Ghrist
