January 26–February 14, 2014
Expect great things to happen as you help others to see clearly. Following a day of orientation and specialized training in Merritt Island, Florida, you travel to Orlando International Airport to begin your flight across the Atlantic Ocean to Douala, Cameroon, via Washington D.C. and Brussels, Belgium. After a night in a guesthouse, you bus 225 miles north to the Teen Missions in Cameroon base in Bamenda. The scenery is beautiful as you travel from sea level to the mountains. You will spend a day repacking and buying supplies before heading to one of the Rescue Units. Put into practice your training in how to fit individuals with proper reading glasses, so that you can share this blessing with others. It will bless you as you see people shout and dance with joy after receiving their new eyeglasses. You also will be helping the facilitators with medical needs as people come to the Unit to seek assistance. Take a moment here or there with the orphans, singing to them, playing with them, reading to them and just spending time holding and loving them. The children, as well as the villagers, will love your attention and will be so grateful you came. You will have opportunity to shop for fabrics, drums, baskets and beautiful wooden items before returning home to the States.
