Stuck in the Mud! The trip almost canceled!

🇪🇨 🇪🇨🇪🇨Eye Surgical Mission Trip to Ecuador 🇪🇨 🇪🇨🇪🇨 It has been raining for days in Florida. The ground has turned into a soaking wet pad of soft mud. Luckily we have a break in the weather. Though the dark clouds are looming overhead, the rain has stopped for a little while. We quickly load up all 500 pounds of supplies onto our truck to head out to the airport. We try to beat another downpour so we can keep our supplies dry from the rain. As soon as Dr. Kondrot starts the truck, the heavy truck bed loaded with supplies sinks deep into the soft mud!!! We are very worried about the in a coming rainstorm and also our flight departure time is coming up very quickly. We call AAA to the rescue. A tow truck will be there in one hour. We might not make it! The Lord is watching over us. We get a tow truck very fast. The nice driver gets me on the phone and asks “Are you at the church at the end of the street?”. I say “Yes Sir, that’s us waiting at the church for you”. He says “I will be there in a few seconds!” We are saved and off we go. On-time departure for Ecuador. All is well! This morning as we try our best to beat the storm, making it to the airport on time, make sure we don’t forget our custom paperwork for the supplies, make sure we don’t forget anything for the surgical mission, we are under a lot of stress yet deep down I know we will be ok. As we drive out, I receive this text from our pastor friend who sends us off with a prayer: There’s no better place than being in the center of God’s will. It’s filled with peace, joy, and overwhelming security that God has prepared something way better than what you have for yourself. It’s so true. Thank you to all our friends and family who pray for us. Continue to keep us in your prayers as we begin another 2 weeks doing God’s work bringing sight to the blind in Ecuador.

Vietnamese Children’s Eye Mission

We spent a week in Hanoi teaching Vietnamese doctors how to treat strabismus. This is a condition that can lead to loss of vision, problems with depth perception and bullying in school with children. We were honored to help so many wonderful children!

Watch this crosses eye baby walk straight for the first time!

Watch this crosses eye baby walk straight for the first time! She’s 16 months old. Her eyes were so crossed inward she sees mostly her nose all the time and that makes learning how to walk straight very difficult. She bumps into things.

Dr. Kondrot performs a strabismus surgery on her and now her eyes are beautifully positioned and she can see well. She is starting to walk straight now.

Her mother is so happy. Words just can’t describe her happiness looking at her daughter with so much love.

We love helping the young children as our work takes away the social barriers this child would have faced if she grows up with such sharply crossed eyes.

We deeply thank the generous sponsors who donated enough funds for us to purchase special sutures to perform these strabismus surgeries on young children on our eye surgical mission trips.

Your generous support change this child’s life.

A moment of joyous celebration for our patients after their eye patches are taken off. They can all see again!

A moment of joyous celebration for our patients after their eye patches are taken off. They can all see again!
They sing and they dance.
Dr Kondrot takes a break from surgery to join them in a little bit of dancing. But not for long. One minute is all he gets. As the nurse comes out and gently takes him back into the operating room. We have a lot of work to do. No time for the doctor to be dancing around!!!
Watch till the end of the one minute video and see how the nurse gently but firmly gets the doctor back to work!
What a fun time for all the patients!
New sight! New life! New freedom to go to what ever they want. No more dependency on other to guide them. They can see now!
Share in the fun as we celebrate the gift of new sight!
We find such abundant joy and happiness in giving sight to the blind in forgotten and unreached places in the world.

🇹🇬🇹🇬🇹🇬 Togo Africa Eye Surgical Mission Trip 🇹🇬🇹🇬🇹🇬
36 eyes operated on the first day and 59 eyes on the second day!
A record number in one on a mission trip for sure.
Here is a picture of Dr. Kondrot and all the happy patient waiting for post op exam.
Our post op exam room is just the dirt floor outside the hospital ground.
We have so little here. We make do with what we have. But all these patients will be singing and dancing later on as they can see again.
Bless their hearts! They are all so happy!
This is how we find abundant joy and happiness in giving sight to the blind in forgotten and unreached places in the world.
It’s so true that’s it’s in giving that we receive!

Togo Africa Eye Surgical Mission –  The story of Epiphany.


🇹🇬🇹🇬🇹🇬 Togo Africa Eye Surgical Mission Trip 🇹🇬🇹🇬🇹🇬
The story of Epiphany. He’s 11 years old. Born blind, deaf and mute. He lives in a silent and dark world. He can not hear and he can not see. He can only feel when someone touches him on his arms.
We operated on both of his eyes. Here he is after we removed his eye patches.
He is seeing for the first time!
He is looking all around him. And up at the sky. Then he cracks a smile!
What is he thinking in his head? We can only guess. His world is now opening up to seeing things around him. He can learn sign language and communicate with his parents. He can make new friends. A whole new life is waiting ahead for Epiphany.
We have 5 more children like him waiting for us to come and restore their eyesight this week.
