Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day

This Mother’s Day, you can give sight to a mom in Togo, Africa. 



Meet Api.

She is a 21 year old mother.

She had a cataract in her left eye, so she came to our Sight.org mobile eye clinic for help. 




She was able to get eye surgery through our free clinic. Now she is able to take care of her baby again. 

She is now able to work again and do what she needs to do for her family.




Imagine how different your life would look if you lost your sight. Now imagine that you are a young mother living in rural Africa and you have lost your sight.

In Togo, cataracts don’t just affect the elderly. Women and men of all ages can be affected by cataracts, just like Api, who is only 21.

When a mother in Togo loses her eyesight, everyone around her is affected. Her husband and children are affected. 

The mother of the family takes care of everyone. But when she loses her eyesight, someone now has to take care of her.

Even if she loses sight in just one eye, everything she does is altered. Cooking becomes more difficult. Cleaning becomes more difficult. Playing with her baby becomes more difficult.

This Mother’s Day, give the gift of sight.

For $12.50 a month or one donation of $150, you can give sight to a mom just like Api.

You will change her life and her baby’s life. 






Beloved New Region

Beloved New Region

The region of Elavagnon is the biggest challenge Sight.org has ever faced.

This entire year, we will be serving this region through eye surgeries and ministry. This area is poorer than any region Sight.org has ever served, and the Ministry of Health in Togo believes there are thousands of people in this region that are blind as a result of cataracts.

This region has zero access to eye care, and from what we have seen; the people living in this region are in worse conditions than any population we have ever served.

Elavagnon, Togo

This week, our medical team will be giving sight to 60 people in this region.


Elavagnon, Togo

Last month, 50 people in this region received their sight back.

Nine year old Faritte was one of the patients in these surgeries.

When he was three months old, he was hit in the eye with a stick. This caused an immediate cataract. He has not been able to see in his left eye since that day. Because of our mobile eye clinic, he is now able to see again. The photos below are from the day of surgery and a week later. We will check on him again in a few weeks to make sure his sight continues to improve.



After our first round of surgeries, our ministry team started building relationships with the patients and their families and neighbors. Through these new relationships, 75 people put their faith in Jesus.


Our ministry team is now working to start a new house church in this village.

If you would like to know more about this process, read our blog about our last house church.

At the beginning of this year, we asked you to pray specifically for this region. We are already seeing God move. Thank you for pouring your heart prayers into a village that you have never even heard of. God is so good.

Meet Koassi

Meet Koassi

He is 55 years old. He worked as a road builder, but when he developed a cataract in his right eye 3 years ago, he was no longer able to drive a car.


He knew that he was about to get fired from his job because of his visual impairment and was desperate for help. He came to SIght.org’s mobile eye clinic and can now see.

He wants to say thank you to all the supporters of Sight.org who made his eye surgery possible. He is now able to go back to work and support his family.

You can give sight to someone like Koassi for $12.50 a month or a one time donation of $150. Donate at https://sight.org/donate/

Coming Home

Coming Home

Happy New Year! We can’t believe it’s already here! New Years is a BIG celebration here in TOGO. People fill the churches the night before (even though they may not go to church all year) and ring in the new year with fasting, prayers and praise!


We are on our way back to the United States thanks to many who gave toward our trip. We couldn’t have done it without you, May God doubly bless you! We will be back in Tyler, TX today! We are excited to be starting our new year coming home to see our kids, grandkids, church family, and friends. It’s been a year and we truly need your face-to-face connection!

We have our schedule for the year and expect GOD to do more through us and our medical/ministry team; afterall He is a BIG GOD!

There will be 450 surgeries scheduled and 41 weeks of ministry for 2017! A lot can happen and we are expecting God to move and change lives. We are asking you to pray along with us that God will do MORE miracles, answer MORE prayers, give MORE dreams, heal MORE of the sick/blind, start MORE small churches in each of these villages and do whatever God wants to do in the area of Elavagnon. 

We have enjoyed working with our Sight.org medical and ministry teams. Our Directors have been awesome and we couldn’t ask for a better team. We are looking forward to what God wants to do through each of these individuals!!
