Cataract Surgeries a Blessing

This past Sunday we completed another nine cataract surgeries. One of the beneficiaries was a 76 year old Brahmin woman. She went to some of the most famous eye hospitals and they said they wouldn’t operate on her as her cataracts were too far gone. This means she has to live blind the rest of her life. She heard of our name through some other people in the area. Our surgeon removed her cataracts and they think that the surgery was successful. She stayed a day or two extra in our hospital and went home praising. We now have a very good name and image in the surrounding villages and patients are coming from these farther away villages. This woman lives at least 50 miles away. That’s very far by Indian standards. In terms of difficulty in traveling, it’s like coming from a distance of 500 miles here. Praise God.
