Mission of Healing Eyes 2010

I have been a part of the Mission of Healing Eyes since the very beginning and have seen the paths unfold in ways that not even puzzle pieces could fit together so perfectly. This mission consisted of may members and without each and every individual this mission would not have been the same. Ranging from the many translators, to the one and only glasses group (Yes shannon that would be us), to the frantic front line Doctors Danny and Julia, and finally to the one and only Dr. Diego! 

In all seriousness, this missions path was and has been unfolding perfectly. It has been unfolded to a T: starting with the purchase and interest in the Bay View Grand Condominium, to the numerous struggles that we have overcome in getting medical equipment down, the short of translators, the Ixtapa and Zihuatanejo community that was so helpful and grateful for us. The countless struggles that this mission has/had hit head on and some how bypassed with some sorts of "ease". 

To me when I look back on the last couple years to see the wonderful wonders that this mission and the people of this mission have put fourth astounds me. But it all didn't happen over night, without the numerous ups and downs of this mission none of these miracles could have happened. All of this made me think was this mission fate? Was it one big miracle that just happened? What can make every single puzzle piece fit together more than perfect?

All those questions are great, but I think that they will be impossible and sometimes never answered. I think the best way to start looking at every situation is...

Trust in the Lord with all your heart and lean not on your own understanding; in all your ways acknowledge him, and he will make your paths straight. Proverbs 3:5-6

The Ixtapa/Zihuatanejo mission trip was by far one of the greatest, if not the greatest, experience of my life. Everyone from our team, to the patients, to the bar tenders at the pool and the jeweler

A Life Changing Experience

The operating room of the Naval Hospital of Zihuatanejo felt like a world away from my desk in downtown Manhattan. However, the experience I left with only makes me want to go back. As I reflect on th
