Nevada Optician Awarded Grant to Fund Mission Trip with Sight Ministries—Anonymous Donation and Self-Fundraising to Pay for Two More Opticians

Sharon, Pa. – Eyes of Faith Optical, along with the Fellowship of Christian Optometrists and Sight Ministries, announced that a Nevada optician has been awarded a $3,000 grant to join the Sight Ministries team on a mission trip to Kenya in October 2012. An anonymous grant will fund the attendance of another optician while a third is raising her own funds to attend.

The grant was awarded to Terrance Powers, a 20-year optician who works at Valley Eyecare in Carson City, Nevada. Powers has seven children, five of them recently adopted. He said he was worried his wife might not be able to manage with him out of the country but that, “she is one-hundred percent supportive, as are all the kids.”

“Terrance is a very deserving winner of this award,” said Jim Schneider, Eyes of Faith President and Co-founder. “We need experienced opticians for these types of trips and the response has been overwhelming.”
