Serving with Sight for Souls

John & Lori Kempen

John works with Sight for Souls, providing free cataract surgeries for needy patients in Ethiopia and surrounding countries. In a part of the world where eye care is hard to find, Sight for Souls provides hope for those who would otherwise be blind, similar to the woman pictured with John on the left.

A portion of the Easter Sacrificial Offering will fund outreach, patient visits, surgeries, and medication for up to 120 patients through Sight for Souls.

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.
