Manado – Day 3

Today was a great day!  When we were learning our way around the office in jakarta, we had noticed a large drawer of reading glasses from past projects.  So we packed them up and brought them to Manado and with the help of President Lang (the local LDS Branch President) and the local missionaries, Dr. Jarstad held a reading glasses screening clinic. The word was put out that a clinic would be held at the Manado Branch of the LDS Church at 4:30 pm.  We arrived and there were about 10-12 people in the chapel.  We set up the tables, put out the glasses and just like ‘Field of Dreams’, we held it and they came.  By the time we finished at 7:30, we had given away about 125 pairs of reading glasses!
