Cathy Potter has recently hosted a joint Optometry mission team between Mission for Vision and Missionary Ventures. Graeme Tucker was team leader alongside Alexandra Keating, Shona MacDonald, Katherine Winter, Elizabeth Reed and Sue Sutherland.
They went to Kwa Zulu Natal and worked at four different locations and Cathy was blown away at how hard they worked and how professional they were, regardless of the never ending line of people each day. They never complained but just kept on working, to see as many people as they possibly could. She says it was a real priviledge to host them and as Jenny (a pastors wife) from Weenen said, “It was awesome to see that the gospel of love looked like something to the people here…..many were given hope”
As well as the Optomtery work, one member of the team Sue Sutherland who specializes in early learning with children, visited all the local pre-schools and was a great blessing to all the students and staff who she met. It was a great trip that changed the lives of many, many people both young and old who now have a new hope for the future.
