Jan 2013: Open My Eyes, Lord...

Rey* came to the mission in 2010, and asked for help to open his eyes that he might see the world around him. On January 2013, a benefactor willing to pay for his surgery was found. We brought Rey to Makati Medical Center for evaluation. Unfortunately, the tests could not elicit any response from the left eye, and can only get a low response from the right eye.  The visual prognosis turned out poor.  Surgery could not help him see.  Please God, may we be able to support his special education instead. He lives in a far-flung mountain range and will need help to pay board and lodging if he will go to a school for the visually impaired.  And by his learning, may he come to the knowledge of God and see more with the eyes of faith!
