Eye brigades

Just wanted to post a few pictures of the ICO FCO group here this week.  May God move through the eye work being done to touch and move hearts towards Him!  (some of the pictures are sideways...too much work to fix it this morning or I would run out of time before leaving for the last brigade.  Sorry about that) 

We had to switch vehicles this week...the first picture is the Ford taken apart...apparently the clutch went out!  Now we have to see if it is cheap enough to get a replacement here or make a trip to the US to replace it cheaper (sometimes...parts can be very expensive here.) 





The group has been doing a great job...so many people need so much help, and physically with their eyes many need help beyond our ability to treat them in the brigade.  For some, that means coming to the clinic in Teguc, for others referrals, and for some prayers for God to move in what otherwise are humanly unfixable situations.

Hi I want to know if the brigade is still in Tegucigalpa, and where are you seeing the patients?

Laura,

We have a clinic in Tegucigalpa that is open year round, (optometry, dental, general medicine and laboratory) but brigades only come in from time to time, and we always take them out of town to different rural areas within a few hours of Tegucigalpa.

Let me know if you have any other questions.
