Day 3, Monday, Jan. 25
After breakfast we got ready to go to our first village of the week. After grabbing hats filling water bottles and splathering sun screen over ourselves, we ran to the door to hop on the cattle trucks, buses, and other methods of transportation.
Somehow Me, Emily, and my Dad ended up in a red pickup. My Dad inside and Me and Em in the back with a few other people. It was a long drive. About an hour.
We were a little bored. 🙂
When we pulled in there were tons of children running to great us. After we unloaded, the whole group all joined hands to pray before we started.
Plastic lenses used to determine what prescription a patent needed.
(Christa L.) Positive 18 glasses.
Emily was a pointer among many other things.
It was some time around 3:00 PM when we packed up, hopped in the trucks, and waved good-bye to the kids. When we got back to the camp, we all scurried to get ready for church. We left as soon as dinner was over.
The next day, the optical team went back to the village we were at the day before. Here are a couple of pictures from both days we were there.
Another way of testing eyes.
