00:01 Hey, I've got a tip for you.
00:02 Don't walk in a rainforest
00:04 when it's raining if you don't want to get wet,
00:06 but let me tell you, it was worth it coming up here.
00:09 This view is absolutely tremendous.
00:12 And I don't know if you've ever done
00:14 what I've done, I love to do on waterfalls.
00:16 And that's, you know,
00:17 you start at the top
00:18 and pick out a droplet of water
00:20 and follow it all the way down.
00:21 Because that's really what a waterfall is,
00:23 is all those individual droplets
00:25 on a waterfall this big,
00:26 but it's spectacular.
00:28 It's an amazing creation of God.
00:31 Pohnpei is filled with waterfalls everywhere.
00:34 And it just, like I say,
00:36 it reminds me directly from the hand of the Creator.
00:38 There, you know,
00:39 it's been destroyed really by thousands of years of sin,
00:44 but it still remains enough
00:45 to give us a visual indication of the Creator God.
01:07 Well, I just came under from the wet to the dry.
01:10 You know, there's a huge overhang with a cave,
01:12 I want you to check out in a moment.
01:14 But, I mean, it's wonderful.
01:16 I'm soaking wet.
01:18 I'm filthy dirty now.
01:19 But this is what you come out here for.
01:21 This is the fun.
01:22 This is the exploration to see the beauty,
01:24 to see everything of God's creation.
01:27 You can hear the waterfall just right off to the side
01:30 of us cascading over the cave.
01:31 So now it's time to check out the cave.
01:49 You know,
01:50 this is exciting up here
01:51 but I would have never found my way up here.
01:53 Well, you know, maybe after some time,
01:55 but they may have found my body.
01:57 But my buddy here, Mr. Dee.
02:00 He's my guide.
02:01 And he's got a lot of good stories,
02:03 because as a child you came up here.
02:06 Tell me what you were sharing something about honeybees
02:08 or something?
02:09 Yeah, we used to come during our time
02:11 I was in elementary like 1960s.
02:15 We come up here and we hide all over under.
02:22 And we have to use the stick to poke.
02:24 How did you get a stick that tall?
02:26 Those are really tall.
02:27 Oh, no, they are low. That's side it's very low.
02:29 Very low.
02:30 Yeah.
02:32 So we have to go up and poke, you know, the lower ones.
02:34 When they fell, these honeybees,
02:36 they're all over us,
02:38 stinging us, and sometimes our eyes are so swollen,
02:43 we cannot see.
02:45 So my question is, why did you do that?
02:47 Just fun and we like the taste of,
02:50 you know, the honey.
02:51 Yeah.
02:53 And just making fun of each other.
02:55 I want you to know, I like him as a brother.
02:57 I've got my arm around him.
02:58 But I've also got my arm around him
03:00 so he doesn't fall off the cliff.
03:02 Tell me another story. What about these caves?
03:04 There's a lot of lore involved.
03:07 You know, when I first came up here,
03:10 you could not see rocks here.
03:12 It's covered by, you know,
03:14 the waste from the bats and the swiftlet.
03:18 It's all over here.
03:19 So we go inside there
03:21 and we just slide down in the...
03:23 In the bat guano.
03:24 Yeah.
03:25 So now people found out that
03:28 it's really good for fertilizer.
03:30 It's all gone.
03:31 Just clean up nothing.
03:33 It's only a little bit left.
03:34 So you're not going to be tempted today
03:36 to slide down anywhere.
03:37 No, it's all rocks in.
03:39 We cannot do that anymore.
03:41 Oh, man, I'm getting to know you better all with that.
03:45 Do you have any other stories
03:47 that you haven't told us about the cave?
03:48 You've always got a great story.
03:51 Let's say you're out of stories.
03:52 Well, there is a place that side just like...
03:58 Don't go away from me too far, you are getting...
04:00 Pile of rocks.
04:01 And people believe that when you come up here,
04:03 you have to bring branches or bees or leaves,
04:07 bushes and leave it on that pile of rocks.
04:13 I'll have to go over there
04:15 because I got it all over my clothes
04:16 so I can leave in there.
04:17 So that you don't get accident here.
04:20 They believe that the ghost or the spirits will protect you
04:24 when you are here if you do that.
04:25 Okay. All right.
04:27 And I think today we forgot.
04:30 That's okay. We've got the Lord.
04:31 Yeah, yeah.
04:33 Hey, I appreciate it.
04:34 We got to check out the caves now.
04:40 So all this is all bat guano everywhere.
04:44 It's all over. Here it's just below.
04:47 Before in 1960s and 70s you cannot see rocks.
04:50 I know it's a lot more up there because I can smell it.
04:52 It's strong.
04:55 Matter of fact,
04:57 I was going to stay up in the cave for a little bit,
04:59 explore a little more,
05:00 but it is way too strong for me.
05:02 I'm coming back a little ways.
05:12 This is absolutely beautiful.
05:15 It's a nice place
05:16 where people come for a picnic or,
05:19 you know, they come just to relax.
05:21 Picnic, boy, the Pohnpeians are strong,
05:24 because that's quite a journey.
05:26 But whenever they come here, they have to, you know,
05:29 they believe that you have to bring leave or things,
05:34 something to offer to the spirits here.
05:37 Okay.
05:38 So that you will have good luck here.
05:40 So you grabbed the leaf.
05:42 You're going to show us how to do?
05:44 The leaves and see people who came before us
05:45 they have all these pile of leaves.
05:48 And what spirit is this supposed to be to?
05:52 I'm not sure.
05:53 But, you know,
05:54 they say the spirit here will protect you
05:56 while you are here.
05:57 So just kind of cover their beds, hedge their beds.
05:59 Yeah.
06:00 They don't know if it works or not?
06:01 No.
06:03 But I know you and I have talked,
06:04 we serve the God of heaven.
06:06 Yeah, many times I came here, I don't bring these things.
06:09 So, you know, this is just a belief
06:13 that the people here have.
06:15 How much time did you spend here
06:17 do you think over the years?
06:21 Not really many,
06:22 whenever tourists or you know
06:24 some of the student missionaries
06:26 would like to come up here,
06:27 I bring them up here.
06:28 When you stay with missionaries.
06:30 So maybe once a year, maybe in a year,
06:31 maybe they come up here maybe three, four times.
06:35 Three, four times? Oh, that's quite a bit.
06:36 All right.
06:37 Yes, I noticed this too.
06:39 This is beautiful over here, the waterfall.
06:41 Yeah, it's a little bit small.
06:43 Sometimes it's really big when it's raining.
06:46 The waterfall will be really pouring down.
06:54 Had to stop here for a moment
06:55 and just give you an idea
06:57 of the grandeur of this location.
06:59 It is massive. It's stunning.
07:01 Absolutely beautiful.
07:03 I'm going to think about the size
07:04 and I feel like almost an ant
07:06 against these massive cliffs.
07:09 Think about the Lord, Isaiah says,
07:10 "I sit on the circle of the earth.
07:12 Everybody's like grasshoppers to me."
07:15 And God is so awesome, so wonderful.
07:18 And to think He came down here
07:20 to planet earth to talk with us,
07:22 to walk among us.
07:24 Is this amazing?
07:26 Yes, it is.
07:27 God is more amazing.
07:31 We've got so much more for you.
07:33 I invite you to stay tuned because we'll be right back.
07:46 According to the World Health Organization,
07:49 depression is the leading cause of worldwide disability
07:53 that happens to a lot of people.
07:55 Are you depressed?
07:56 Have you become discouraged lately?
07:58 The list is endless of things
08:00 that can trigger discouragement,
08:01 despair, or even depression.
08:04 If you are someone you know
08:05 is experiencing one or more of these difficulties,
08:08 we have a great little booklet for you.
08:10 It's written by author and international speaker
08:12 Jim Ayer.
08:14 Overcoming the 3Ds contains timely advice
08:17 set in a lighthearted manner,
08:18 meant to help lift you up and out of your problems.
08:22 Understand, we all have problems,
08:24 trials and troubles,
08:25 but we don't need to focus on them.
08:28 You can obtain your copy right now
08:30 by going to
08:32 And for a gift of any amount, that's for any gift amount,
08:36 you will receive your copy of Overcoming the 3Ds.
08:39 Get your copy today.
08:44 So tell me doctor, we're in what room right now?
08:46 We had a hard place in the hospital
08:48 finding a place
08:49 where we wouldn't be totally obtrusive.
08:51 That's right.
08:52 We're in the area
08:54 where all the instruments are autoclaved.
08:56 And some instruments are stored as you can see here.
08:59 And we have tabletop autoclaves that we use for ophthalmology
09:04 because our instruments are small.
09:06 So we have two different sizes,
09:09 kind of a medium and a large
09:10 that have larger cassettes
09:13 that where the cooking of the instruments occurs.
09:16 And as we're talking here,
09:17 you'll hear occasionally a little err sound.
09:19 Yeah, what is that sound for our viewers?
09:20 It's going to drive them crazy, probably,
09:22 but we'll focus on you.
09:23 Right, but that's a sound
09:24 that makes us having to do with.
09:27 Just like in a pressure cooker,
09:28 it's maintaining a certain pressure
09:30 as the instruments are being cooked.
09:32 And then once the cycle is done,
09:35 then it starts venting off gas,
09:37 which is another interesting sound,
09:39 you may hear as we go along.
09:40 Okay.
09:41 Can I assume that
09:43 your team brought all of these instruments?
09:45 No, these are instruments
09:46 that the hospital pass
09:48 and they are generally much larger,
09:51 you know, for all different types of cases
09:53 that they might do.
09:54 There's general surgeons here
09:56 and we've already witnessed them
09:59 doing some amputations.
10:00 We've also witnessed a C section birth,
10:05 you know, not, well,
10:07 I mean, through the window,
10:08 we didn't assist with it, but...
10:10 So everything...
10:11 Normal cases going on here.
10:13 Everything you bring
10:14 is more specialized a lot smaller typically.
10:17 That's right.
10:18 We have instruments
10:20 that are generally small enough
10:22 that it's hard to tell what they are
10:24 without putting them under the microscope.
10:26 Okay.
10:27 And so an entire tray would be about,
10:30 you know, a little bit bigger than my hand of,
10:33 say, 10 or so instruments
10:34 that we would use for a routine case.
10:36 And then we have our accessory instruments,
10:37 either in other trays or in sterile bags
10:40 that can be opened as needed.
10:42 Now, I know you've got a real heart for Canvasback.
10:45 You've been a driving force,
10:46 recruiting and bringing people together
10:49 to participate in these teams.
10:50 Tell me a little more about that?
10:52 Well, I first went, I believe is in 2002,
10:55 on an ophthalmology trip,
10:56 and I enjoyed it enough that I went a few more times.
11:00 And it turned out that until this trip,
11:02 they were all in one of the locations
11:05 that we go to in the Marshall Islands.
11:07 But I believe this is my fifth or sixth trip that I've made,
11:12 and it evolved into me, you know,
11:15 directing it as medically
11:16 and getting the doctors together
11:18 and the team members, which is really a lot of fun.
11:20 Because when you tell them, we're going to go help people,
11:23 and we're going to do this kind of work,
11:25 and we're going to go,
11:27 you know, to an interesting place,
11:28 then they're usually saying,
11:30 "Oh, I'd really like to go, let me check my calendar."
11:33 And sometimes there's problems with that.
11:35 But I don't usually have to ask too many people
11:38 before we get team together.
11:40 For this particular team,
11:41 how long did it actually take you to recruit the team?
11:44 I'd say it came together over maybe a two month period,
11:47 something like that.
11:48 That is pretty rapidly, really.
11:50 Yes.
11:51 Yeah, some, every once in a while,
11:52 there's a key position where I have to ask more people
11:54 to make it work out.
11:55 Okay.
11:56 Now, tell us what type of people are needed
11:58 on these kinds of teams?
12:00 Well, certainly for an ophthalmology team,
12:02 we need people with special skills.
12:04 So besides surgeons, we need assistance,
12:09 who are used to doing that kind of work
12:11 so that we can be efficient.
12:13 And, so it's a special skill set.
12:16 We have a pool of people who say, I really like to help,
12:21 but I've never worked with eyes before.
12:23 And those people can come and can be of help,
12:25 and we can train them in.
12:27 But we can't go only on those kind of people,
12:29 we need people,
12:31 as I said, had the special skill set.
12:33 And so I'm specifically looking for those people.
12:36 Okay.
12:37 Tell me a little bit more
12:38 why you have such a heart for Canvasback?
12:40 Well, I just, I enjoy helping people.
12:44 That's why I became a doctor in the first place.
12:46 And then there's a further enjoyment
12:49 from doing it for as a volunteer to help people
12:55 who especially may not have access to the care.
12:59 Nobody gets paid for this?
13:01 That's right. It's a volunteer thing.
13:03 So that's a special joy.
13:05 So when you, when I go on a vacation,
13:07 that's enjoyable,
13:08 but it's even more enjoyable to spend vacation time
13:10 doing something that's helping people.
13:13 And we usually have a day
13:15 or so where we can enjoy the area
13:18 we're in doing excursion or something that's fun, too.
13:21 But the biggest fun
13:22 is seeing working with the people,
13:25 seeing the smiles on their faces
13:27 and knowing that we've made an impact in their lives.
13:32 We saw some...
13:33 We were watching some post-op, removing the bandages,
13:36 these people who couldn't see apparently,
13:38 hardly the hand in front of the face
13:39 all of a sudden can now see it.
13:41 That's got to be rewarding.
13:43 Right, and we don't always get to see that here
13:46 but when we operate just before the weekend,
13:49 then we get to go in on the weekend
13:50 and see some of that,
13:51 which I was able to do a couple days ago.
13:54 And that's probably
13:55 the most fun of the trip for me.
13:57 Get to see the fruits of your labor.
13:58 Right, because the doctors are in the clinic all the time.
14:00 They see it pretty much every day.
14:02 And that's that is probably
14:04 one of the more really fun parts
14:06 to see those smiles.
14:08 And when I get to see them
14:10 on that one day and then sometimes,
14:12 as I, as we come in and do their second eye,
14:16 it's often possible to do on the trip
14:18 that we get to see them.
14:19 Why do you do one eye at a time?
14:21 Oh, well, there are some risks with surgery
14:24 and one risk is that
14:25 they can have an infection in their eye
14:27 which can be devastating.
14:29 Usually, if we catch it, we can reverse it.
14:31 But it could be devastating
14:33 and even lead to loss of the eye
14:34 or loss of vision or the loss of the eye itself.
14:37 And so, this is a reason
14:39 probably not to do both eyes at once.
14:41 Although to be honest,
14:42 it is increasing in its frequency
14:44 around the world and how it's being done.
14:47 But I would say probably
14:49 not the best for a mission situation.
14:53 And so that's why we steer clear of it.
14:56 Another thing you can think of is that
14:57 we're putting an implant lens in,
14:59 it's based on a calculation.
15:00 And that calculation could be off
15:02 to the left or to the right
15:03 that is nearsighted or farsighted.
15:06 And if you do the second eye at different time,
15:09 then you can change the lens implant for that eye
15:11 to try to make the outcome be even more precise, possible.
15:14 Okay.
15:17 Riburty was born blind.
15:19 That's right.
15:21 He couldn't see it all.
15:22 The entire family were his caregivers.
15:25 Their lives were completely tied
15:27 to the needs of their little son.
15:30 The doctors at the hospital lacked the experience
15:33 to provide him with surgical help.
15:36 This situation continued for six long years.
15:40 Making less than $100 per month,
15:43 there is no way to ever afford the surgery.
15:46 Even if they could fly off island,
15:49 the surgery in another country could be $12,000.
15:54 It looked like all hope was gone.
15:57 Enter the Canvasback Super Team.
15:59 Riburty was examined and the surgery was performed.
16:03 The day the bandages came off,
16:05 he saw his parents and siblings
16:07 for the very first time.
16:09 He and the family were set free.
16:12 There are more children like Riburty
16:14 who are in desperate need.
16:16 You can change many lives.
16:18 Please give sight to the blind.
16:20 Log on to today
16:23 to give your gift of love.
16:25 Dr. Chen,
16:27 I heard him say this morning in our meeting,
16:29 I believe it was what,
16:30 the greatest cause of blindness is glaucoma.
16:35 Well, he said cataracts.
16:36 Cataracts, excuse me, yeah, cataract, yeah.
16:38 Yeah.
16:39 There's estimated to be about
16:41 20 to 30 million people worldwide,
16:42 who are blind in both eyes with cataracts.
16:46 And this is an estimated number,
16:47 it's hard to really pin it down.
16:50 Many of them are in areas of the world
16:52 you would expect that are the poorest
16:54 and have the least access to health care.
16:57 I have a colleague
16:59 who's been to Ethiopia
17:00 where there's probably
17:01 over a million of those patients
17:03 are in that country where there are approximately,
17:06 I think, four ophthalmologists per million residents
17:10 or maybe somewhere around there.
17:12 And some of the areas are quite rural.
17:14 And so, the more remote places,
17:18 the more likely are the patients
17:20 that are underserved by health resources like that.
17:24 And Canvasback is always in need of volunteers.
17:27 Many volunteers are going all the time,
17:30 not just eye but orthopedic and gynecology
17:35 and ear nose and throat specialist
17:37 and the list kind of goes on.
17:39 What would you say to folks,
17:41 why they're needed
17:42 it all their expertise
17:43 or non-expertise assistants, whatever?
17:46 Why are they needed?
17:47 Well, they're needed
17:49 because many hands make light work.
17:55 That's what I would say.
17:56 So we need people to come,
18:00 we need their enthusiasm, either.
18:03 But we need their hands, you know,
18:05 to do the work that needs to be done.
18:07 And at every phase of the trip,
18:12 there's surprised to be dealt with,
18:14 there's patients to be dealt with.
18:17 Sometimes when children of the workers come along,
18:20 we use them as runners to communicate back and forth,
18:23 pass notes or walk patients back
18:26 and forth between the clinic and the operating room here.
18:29 So we try to get everybody involved.
18:32 And if when we have a smaller trip
18:35 and fewer people,
18:37 then there's so many,
18:40 there's so much more exhausting these can.
18:43 We try to do everything yourself,
18:45 and you can't take care of too many patients.
18:48 Now, I've heard this before as well.
18:50 Why don't you just stay in the United States
18:52 because there's lots of need right there?
18:54 Why travel halfway across the world?
18:57 Well, there...
19:00 I would not deny that there are needs in the United States,
19:03 I would just say that seems like there are greater needs
19:05 in other countries.
19:07 And there are patients in the United States
19:13 who do not have insurance.
19:15 And I have been involved personally
19:17 in helping some of those patients
19:19 to get cataract surgery that they need.
19:21 And it's that's very rewarding also,
19:23 believe me,
19:25 and we get some wonderful thank you notes from patients
19:27 who were able to help them get care,
19:30 otherwise they couldn't have gotten.
19:31 So we have that every day mission
19:34 that we do back home.
19:36 But I would say that
19:37 the absolute numbers
19:39 of those patients are pretty low
19:40 compared to some other places in the world.
19:43 Okay.
19:46 The financial numbers for Canvasback,
19:50 it costs money to bring a team here,
19:53 but the amount of money
19:54 that comes out of it as far as the,
19:56 well, basically the amount money that's,
20:00 what's the word I'm looking for?
20:02 It's about a million dollars worth of procedures
20:05 and things that are done totally free for the people.
20:09 Why would you say
20:10 and I know you're a supporter
20:12 of the ministry financially also,
20:14 why would you say that people should support Canvasback?
20:18 Well, my answer would be that the,
20:23 when you're,
20:24 the money that you give
20:25 has a kind of a tangible result.
20:28 And that's something a lot of, when I'm a donor,
20:31 I love to see that, you know, you get to see, you know,
20:34 that you're helping people see better,
20:36 or get care that they otherwise couldn't get.
20:39 And so that's, it's very rewarding.
20:42 And so it's something tangible that you can see.
20:44 And I believe it's pretty efficient financially.
20:47 In other words, for an amount of money,
20:49 some organizations,
20:51 I don't know what Canvasback number is there,
20:52 they actually have a number of dollars per eye
20:55 that sees better.
20:56 And this is a calculation that can be done,
20:59 but it's something that that just goes to show
21:02 how your dollars can get a tangible result,
21:07 and help to,
21:09 help people to see kind of the love of Christ
21:14 in action you know,
21:15 and I think that's a neat thing.
21:17 As a leader in the field of health in Micronesia,
21:21 Canvasback Missions
21:22 has been helping people reverse diabetes for years.
21:26 Yes, you heard correctly, reverse diabetes.
21:30 In addition,
21:31 we are helping to reduce the incident of heart disease.
21:35 At least 34 million people in the US have diabetes.
21:39 Many have no idea they have it until it's almost too late.
21:43 Many children have diabetes.
21:45 It's time to stop it in its tracks.
21:48 What's the key?
21:49 Certain foods,
21:50 exercise and many other simple yet critical items
21:54 are combined to produce amazing results.

22:14 It will be life changing.
22:26 Wow, it is, it is raining out there.
22:29 I can't hardly believe the amount of rain,
22:31 hopefully it quits pretty soon.
22:33 But I really came to,
22:35 you know, check out the waterfall
22:37 to look at the area.
22:38 And as I look at all this,
22:40 I can't help but think about Jesus Christ.
22:42 Jesus said,
22:44 "You know, I am the living water."
22:46 He and the disciples arrived on a desert place.
22:48 I know right now it's a little hard
22:50 to think about a desert place
22:51 with all of this water but there He was,
22:54 they put in a hard day
22:56 worth of labor already by lunchtime.
22:59 Disciples went someplace to find lunch.
23:02 Jesus lingered around this town of Samaria.
23:05 Now, the Jews,
23:07 they didn't really care for the Samaritans.
23:09 They didn't talk, they didn't communicate.
23:11 But Jesus found Himself at a well,
23:14 this woman came out of the village,
23:15 she stopped,
23:17 she dropped her bucket into the well.
23:18 And Jesus said, "Would you give me a drink?"
23:21 Well, this was extremely strange
23:23 because no Jew would ever talk to a Samaritan
23:27 and let alone a woman.
23:28 She said, "Sir, you're asking me for a drink?"
23:32 And Jesus then said to her,
23:34 "You know, if you really knew who I was,
23:37 I would offer you living water."
23:40 And then she said, in this communication,
23:43 the Holy Spirit's working in her heart, in her life.
23:45 And she said, "Sir, yes, I would like that water.
23:49 I would really like that water."
23:51 And, of course, as the story continues,
23:53 this lady had had many husbands, many.
23:56 She was pretty much a lady of the town as it were.
24:00 Her entire life was immediately changed.
24:02 And that's what happens
24:04 when that living water flows into you.
24:07 There's a text, you know, I carry my Bible with me a lot.
24:10 I wanted to share this with you.
24:12 John Chapter 7, beginning in verse 37.
24:16 "Jesus was there at the temple now
24:18 and they're having their ceremonies,
24:19 and Jesus stood and He cried, saying,
24:21 'If any man or any woman, any person,
24:25 first, let him come to Me and drink."
24:29 Jesus was offering Himself as the living water,
24:32 the one who would change each and every person.
24:35 "He that believes in Me,"
24:37 He says in verse 38,
24:39 as the scripture said,
24:41 "out of his belly show flow rivers of living water."
24:45 What does that mean, living water?
24:47 It means when we accept Jesus Christ in our lives,
24:51 God flows out of our lives.
24:53 I was at the Dead Sea one time and there at that Dead Sea,
24:56 everything's dead
24:58 because everything flows in but nothing flows out.
25:01 You see we've got to have, when Jesus comes in our lives,
25:04 we've got to have that water flow out too,
25:06 we've got to share with others, we've got to go and share.
25:09 Yeah, that's what a lot of the team
25:11 is doing here is sharing.
25:13 One more text I want to close with.
25:16 And this particular thought
25:17 is found in Revelation in Chapter 22.
25:21 "And the Spirit says,
25:22 'Come, let him that is first or thirsty,
25:26 come.
25:27 And whosoever will let him take of the water of life freely."
25:33 There is no price.
25:34 There is no charge for this.
25:37 It's simply opening your heart.
25:38 It's simply surrendering himself.
25:41 One of my favorite authors said,
25:43 "We don't even know how to pray,
25:44 but we can pray this prayer.
25:46 Please, Lord, take my life, take my heart,
25:49 I can't give it."
25:51 But what it's doing is giving God permission
25:54 to begin taking control of our lives
25:57 that we might begin walking with Him.
26:00 And, my friends, when we walk with Him,
26:02 we will stand with Him
26:03 for eternity on that crystal sea
26:05 that had beautiful river.
26:08 You know, the Bible also records
26:10 that there's a river of life
26:11 that flows out of the throne of God.
26:14 I want to be there.
26:15 I'd like to invite you too to be there with me.
26:18 Partake of that beautiful river flowing from Jesus Christ.
26:27 Our Canvasback volunteers are bringing hope
26:30 to those who have no hope.
26:32 They are providing healing to those who are in need.
26:36 Every volunteer takes time from their busy schedules
26:39 to help others for no pay at all.
26:42 That's right.
26:43 Our help is virtually free of charge.
26:46 Surgeries that could cost thousands of dollars
26:49 are performed for no pay.
26:51 We do it because we love to see the smile on a person
26:55 who was once blind and can now see.
26:59 As the Bible says, "The blind see, the lame walk,
27:04 the deaf hear."
27:05 I have the wonderful opportunity
27:07 to see God's miracles of healing on a regular basis.
27:11 If you would like to join us
27:13 in bringing healing to those less fortunate,
27:16 please partner with us.
27:18 I guarantee you that you will be changing lives.
