‘Fixing our eyes on Jesus’
Surgeons removed cataracts and improved the vision in 239 eyes during a recent eye surgery camp at the Gunung Sitoli Hospital. Church-supported organizations Body and Soul Ministries and TEARS (Tsunami Earthquake American Relief Services) partner with the Caris Foundation to provide the free service. Greg Smith, who works with Caris, traveled to Nias to document the two-day surgery camp.
“When walking through a crowd of grateful patients who have just been given their sight, it is very humbling, and it fills one’s heart with joy — to be able to stand on the giving side of human need,” said Dr. John Bailey, Body and Soul Ministries president.
