"Impacting the World for Jesus Christ" thru M.O.S.T. Ministries 2016
Karen Kuehnert, Mission Trip Coordinator

Post Nov. 1, 2016
 
 Our Mission trip to Nicaragua, June 10th – 18th of this year was more than just wonderful.  It was a Christ-Giving experience to all of us that went.  Of course, we could not have done it without all the donations of eyeglasses to help bring sight to those in need.

The need for eyeglasses was great. M.O.S.T. Ministries eyeglass teams not only saw that the glasses you donated were given to needy people, but they provided local missionaries the opportunity to share the Gospel of Jesus with the people while they were waiting to be being fitted for their glasses.  

 
Using a very simple testing system created specifically for M.O.S.T. Ministries, this team tested vision and distribute eyeglasses to those in need. During the daily clinics, team members tested patient's eyes and then fit them with the appropriate corrective lenses.

Eyeglass training was provided by the team leader and was completed in three to four hours during one of the team meetings.  If team members could not attend the meeting, a training CD and manual were provided for individual instruction. When the team arrived on the mission field, final hands-on training was provided.

In order to minister to the spiritual needs of patients, each eyeglass clinic included a witnessing station unless it is prohibited by the host country.  At the witnessing station, the Gospel message and information about the home church was shared by the local missionaries, national pastors and lay ministers.  Team members were always welcome to work at the witness station or to share Christ's love with the patients as they came through the clinic.  Please see our slideshow of our amazing trip!

Mission of the Month

Holy Cross Urban Ministry has been identified as a primary area of outreach in the Fort Wayne area.  A minimum of four activities take place there each year: The Great American Clean-up in the spring, a carnival in Klug Park in the summer, leaf raking in the fall, and Christmas caroling in December.
 
Our mission grant will go to helping vicar, Lewis A. King, lead their urban mission from his barber shop. Members of Holy Cross are invited to study the word, teach VBS and reach out to the inner-city with the good news of Jesus.
