I wanted to send you an email to say thank you for letting us use your equipment! I've been traveling non-stop since the trip so I wanted to take the time to thank you.
We were working in a city called xxxxx. No one has ever worked in xxxxx. Nor, has anyone been given permission to work there. When we told them we could host an eye glass clinic the mayor of the town said yes! Praise the Lord! We saw over 300 patients and got into homes for homes visit each night due to the eye glass clinic. We saw 12 Muslims come to faith in Jesus during our time!! The eye glass clinic was a hit!! We still can't believe that we were the first and only group legally given permission to work there!
The need is huge in this city. I'm going back with a team in November. Our nationals asked if we could host another eye glass clinic. I will be gone November 5 - 15. Would you have some equipment available?
I wanted to thank you again, my friend. You're very generous to allow people to take your eye glass equipment overseas! The impact was huge!
