Let The Blind Man Say, “I can see again”

Several weeks ago as we were walking through Armenia Bonito we met a man sitting in his hammock. After we talked with him a while he said, “ I am a Christian. But, my eyes are bad and I can’t read my Bible anymore. I miss it greatly. Can you get me glasses so I can read my Bible?”

While we hope to soon bring an eye doctor into Honduras, we do not currently have the ability to provide glasses.

Today is “Day of the Bible” here in Honduras and we handed out 200 free Bibles in Armenia Bonito. But, we did not want to leave our poor sighted friend out of the joy of the day. We found and purchased a large print, Spanish language, book of John.

At the end of our time in Armenia Bonito we went back to our friend’s house. Mike walked up to him and said, “You are the man with the bad eyes, correct?” After he confirmed the man’s malady Mike continued, “We have the book of John for you written in big words.” The man, wearing an old, broken pair of woman’s reading glasses on his head received the gift with great joy. He had a huge smile on his face and couldn’t stop saying “thank you”.
