A little 6 year-old boy with severely crossed eyes had a need for glasses. His mother could not afford them. His vision made it almost impossible for him to read, and sometimes he would trip while walking. We worked with Kason Bloom to schedule him for an eye appointment. After the glasses are priced, MMO will follow up to help the church meet his need.
