Holland -

Attached are some pictures from our recent mission trip.  I may be able to obtain even better photographs of us using the autorefractor when our photographer returns to the US, but I wanted you to have these now.

We had a blessed time in Manaoag, Philippines and once again, the use of the optometry equipment, especially the autorefractor, enabled us to help others for the Glory of the Lord.  We were able to fit 208 pairs of prescription glasses in 4 1/2 days.  Our team consisted of 4 from the U.S. along with 3 interpreters from the Philippines.  

One of our eyeglasses team members was new this year, and he was able to read through the training manual, practice using the equipment, and quickly become proficient at getting a reading from the autorefractor.

Our ministry team was blessed to be able to bless the people in Manaoag with the Love of the Lord, and through the help of Kendall Optometry Ministry, we were able to help many see.
