Greeting from El Salvador!!!!
Abigail Association truly exploded in February with blessings for so many. We were blessed to have the Vision Team here. I honestly did not realize the need for glasses in this country until they came. They saw 378 people in 3.5 days!!! That is a total of 756 eyes!!!! They were able to give eye exams and glasses free of charge!!!! It was such an experience to have some not be able to see the big "E" on the eye chart when they were examined, but after receiving their glasses, they could read almost 20/20. Their faces literally lit up with JOY!!!!
Many of them had never even had an eye exam or never would have been able to afford a pair of glasses. So what BLESSINGS the Vision Team provided. If you want to see some of the photos and video, look for them on my Facebook page. (Janis Watkins)
One day that was particularly fun for the Vision Team was their day in Cabanas with the elderly. The Team gave eye exams to about 50 elderly that day. But they elderly also had some enterainment lined up for the Team. They sang and danced and just had a wonderful time. We also gave them lunch and lots of love.
And the Vision Team also was able to feed over 100 people at the Kids Connection breakfast. The Team were amazing and LOVED feeding the kids. I think it is an experience they will never forget!!! We also added another day to our Connection breakfast. This ministry really is exploding!!!! So now we will be serving over 300 hot free breakfast EVERY week!!!! Can I just say Praise The Lord!!!!
I am super excited about what is happening with our new Hope
