HEARTFELT THANKS !!!!
For the generous donations to the used eye glass mission program. Over the past six years our congregation (here at St. James) has given, to date, 390 pairs of adult and children's used eye glasses and sun glasses. Two teams made the trip to Honduras this spring to bring the gift of sight--including Dr. Douglas Totten and his daughter. Amazing!!!!....keep up the good work.
