A Fun Treat!

A Fun Treat!

Happy New Year!

Our team got a special treat last week.

After surgeries, the people in the village of Bafilo were so thankful that they took our team to a nearby waterfall to celebrate.

We wish every single one of you could have been with our team to celebrate. It was such a joyful day!

Here is a personal message from one of our team members, Daniel:

“1 Corinthians 3:6-9 means the one who plants is not anybody special nor the one who waters. For God is the one who brings supernatural growth. Now the one who plants and the one who waters are equally important and on the same team but each will be rewarded for his own worth.

We are coworkers with God. We, being instruments used since the beginning of this year, want to thank God personally, for successful works. Even though every surgery had its challenges they were also covered with joy and testimony. Many are doing the same works but what distinguishes the good and the bad is God’s grace. Most often people always said that our surgical operations are the best with good results. That’s grace. It removes the clothes of disgrace and replaces them with only favor.”

“We do want to thank God for every hand, that includes our supporters, U.S Team, and Togo team. You are all amazing! And the people of Bafilo do appreciate our works and send their hearts of gratitude to the U.S as well for the restoration of sight. Praise God for wonderful surgeries and for wonderful workers.

Happy New Year family as we continue to share in the joy of our Lord and Prince of peace to the world, and his love for the world as well.”

Announcing future plans for Sight.org!

God has been stirring in our hearts over the past several months and we are finally ready to tell you all about it.

Watch this video to find out more.

Malatouba: Then and Now

Malatouba: Then and Now

Two years ago we introduced you to Malatouba

When Mala was seven years old, she started having pain in her legs.

Her pain was so intense that she couldn’t even walk. She hadn’t been able to walk in twenty-two years. 

Her dad came to Sight.org for eye surgery. While they were there, her brother saw that we were also praying for the sick. He ran and got Mala from her house and brought her back to be prayed for.

Mala’s brother sat her down on the ground on a blanket and waited for us to pray for her. When we saw her, we noticed that she wasn’t just in pain but something else was going on in her body.

We recognized several signs that there was spiritual warfare happening. We asked her if she believed God could heal her and she said yes.

We started praying and asked her to try to walk. She was still not able to walk. We prayed again and asked her to try again. This time she had less pain but could only take a few steps before she had to sit down again.

We prayed a third time and this time, she stood up and walked without any pain. 

She said that she wanted to become a Christian. We gave her an audio Bible and connected her with a church near her house.

We found out a few months later that she had not been going to church and the pain in her legs had come back. Her brother was worried about her so he took her to church. They prayed for her again and she started crying uncontrollably.

That day, she fully gave her life to Christ. She started going to a Bible study at church and got baptized. 

Mala came to the Sight.org farm to get further discipleship.

She is a hard worker, so while she was getting discipled, she also helped out around the farm. We eventually hired her to help in the kitchen on the farm.

Mala said that her life looks so different now.

Before, she had to spend all her money on medical treatments and nothing ever worked. Now, she has gone two years without any pain and she is able to use her money for more important things.

She has overwhelming joy now because of her relationship with Christ. She reads her Bible and prays every day.

She said that when she was a Muslim, she was always angry. Even her mother said she was afraid to be around her. But now, when she gets frustrated, she gives it to God and she feels humble.

Mala not only helps in the kitchen, but she also goes out with the ministry team to tell others about Jesus.

She loves getting to be a part of this ministry because she learns more about Jesus every day.

We wish you could hear her pray. Her prayers are so beautiful and pure. She truly loves the Lord with all her heart.

Beth’s Trip to Togo

Beth’s Trip to Togo

What I learned in Togo…
I got back from Togo a few weeks ago and I am still processing everything I learned from the Lord and from my brothers and sisters in Togo. This was my 5th trip to Togo with Sight.org. The last few trips, I’ve gone during Surgery Week. This time, I got to go during Ministry Week.

Ministry Week is always right after Surgery Week so the team can check up on patients in their home and follow up with any new believers.

What I experienced by going into people’s homes during Ministry Week was completely different than what I usually experience during Surgery Week.Almost every time we went into a patient’s home, we heard something like what this man in the photo said.
One lady even cooked lunch for us on the spot when she saw us coming.People are so happy and thankful when we are able to give them their sight back. But they are even more blown away when we go the extra mile to visit them in their home to check on them.

They truly can’t believe that anyone would do that for them.

Many people make commitments during Surgery Week to follow Christ. During Ministry Week, we follow up and ask those people how we can support them in their new relationship with Christ.Often, they are already struggling because the enemy is attacking them. We pray with them and then connect them with a church close to their house.

It was so good for me to see firsthand how we support these new believers.

These two brothers said they couldn’t stop thinking and talking about the gospel message they heard during Surgery Week.They had the gospel of John sitting on their table when we walked into their home. They come from a long line of Voodoo followers but God is softening their hearts to the gospel.

When they saw Pastor Florent walking up to their home, they said, “You are the man who preached to us during surgery! Welcome pastor!”

I can tell you from experience that when you donate to Sight.org, you truly give sight both physically and spiritually. People are giving their lives to Christ daily because of this sight-restoring ministry. The Sight.org team works so hard every single day for His Kingdom and His glory! I loved going with them during Ministry Week and seeing how God is working through each one of them. They are blessings to the people of Togo.
