    Is your church now, or have you in the past, collected used prescription eyeglasses to send with opticians on mission trips?

    All my prescription glasses and ones we collect are sent to Cuba, and have been sent there since the 50's.

    Cubans often wait 3 years to get a pair of glasses. This way they are fitted much quicker.

    It can be a great mission tool anywhere in the world.

    Cheers,

    Jim
