Trunkfuls of Eyeglasses!

What would you do with a trunkful of used eye glasses?
What about several trunkfuls of eye glasses?

Why not host an "Eyeglass Sorting Party"?  Invite a few friends over, offer to feed them lunch and put them to work.

A friend from church generously donates the excess eyeglasses from her business.  Our crew sorts out the single vision glasses (lenses for both eyes are essentially the same).  Then we label them, bag them by strength, and they are ready to go on our next mission trip.

Eyeglasses that we are not able to use are donated to two other non-profit organizations that are able to replace the existing lenses with new prescriptive lenses.

Thank you to the crew - you know who you are!
Sorry to the workers who left before photos were taken!

"... and see if I will not throw open the floodgates of heaven and pour out so much blessing that there will not be room enough to store it." Malachi 3:10b

We can't wait to see the lives that will be changed for good, touched by the love of Jesus, through these eyeglasses.

Stay tuned for reports as the journey continues.....
