Serving with Sight For Souls to bring the gift of sight for the body and soul.

John & Lori Kempen

Dr. John Kempen and his wife Lori serve with Sight For Souls, a Christian nonprofit organization transforming lives and communities through the gift of sight for the body and soul. Their inaugural project is the establishment of the Discovery Eye Institute. Through this project and other avenues, they are building relationships and sharing Jesus with their friends and patients.

Pray for their language learning, for strong friendships with Ethiopians, and for their children to increasingly love their new home in Africa.

The Kempens have been serving in Ethiopia since 2015. John does teaching, research and clinical work with Sight of Souls in Ethiopia and the Director of Epidemiology for Ophthalmology at Massachusetts Eye and Ear. He is raising up a new generation of eye specialists as well as providing medical care for the poor in Ethiopia. Lori homeschools their three children and is building relationships within their community and church family.

Pray for wisdom as John balances the many demands of his work and ministry.

Pray for the emotional and physical well-being of their children as they grow. Pray they would develop a passion for God's saving work in their current context and around the world. 

Pray that all of them would develop strong friendships with those around them.
