Erasto's Eye Fund
To the right is my friend Estro who I met in Tanzania. He works at the local Bible College teaching English as a Second Language. You will notice that one of his eyes is out of line with the other. Since I was born with crossed eyes and had them corrected, I feel for him. I am trying to raise funds to have this condition corrected in his country. His pastor and college head are joining me in this effort to keep everything honest. Kindly join me in this goal.
FUNDING MET! THANK ALL! 
Here is what Erasto's Pastor said:
"

Hello brother Bob.

I really appreciate your gigantic help and effort you've made! 

I believe the funds will be utilized as planned!

Be blessed you and other donors."

As many of my friends know, I recently traveled to Tanzania Africa and helped to bless the people there. The people, although dirt poor by American standards, are a happy people and an ambitious people. 

I met Estro and was deeply touched in my heart to help him get his eyes straightened. I am sure that the chance meeting was an act of God and may even have been the best reason for my trip there. My original thought was to have him come to America where my eyes were corrected at the Presbyterian - Columbia Hospital in New York City. I was born that way, 3 months premature. Estro, had a disease when he was one year old which his mother says left him this way. It is embarrassing for him.

 However, through modern communications, Erasto and I found that it could be done in Tanzania for him with an operation in Dar Es Salaam. It is their biggest city and formerly the Capital. 

Estro upon my communication with him, went right to work getting a local eye exam, and contacting the eye hospitals in Dar Es Salaam. He came up with a plan and an in country cost. It is cheap by American standards. 

Although I am unable to presently meet his hoped for time table. I am asking that you help me to give him this Christmas present. Donations can be sent to:
INSIGHT MINISTRIES INC.
50 Oak Ridge Rd. Bethel, Ct. 06801-1151
All donations are tax deductible and I will send a receipt as requested. 
I will post every donation here using your initials as we get closer and closer to the $1675.34 goal.
