"Today I want to express my appreciation to MOST Ministries eyeglass clinic ministry given to Deaf community in Ethiopia. The team from MOST Ministries consisted of 12 voluntary devoted Christian members. They came from various places in America. The team consists of various age groups - young and older ones. Eye clinic service to deaf community was held for the first time and was unique. Deaf community needs more of such service because their eye is very essential for communication. All together nearly 1,000 people got eye clinic service and more than 500 of them received eye glasses based on their severity of eye problems. The service was so useful and fruitful to Deaf community.
What impressed me most from their service is that they shared the Good news of our Lord Jesus Christ in a very simple method and they were committed to proclaiming the gospel. They prayed and reflected on their daily service every evening and have exemplary team work spirit. I would like to thank our Lord for helping us to accomplish this noble service to Deaf community in Ethiopia!"

"Thank you very much for sending such a great team. This was the best team ever. The team was very knowledgeable and filled with skills needed for the projects. The Team Leader was incredible. The team demonstrated Jesus ways and his actions to the community and the students were over joyed by their presence. Thank you once again for putting up such a great team together and thank you for sending them out to run the projects.
The girls enjoyed making the [feminie hygiene] kits. They also showed a great need to have those kits. The team has also made enough that will be donated to girls and families that have nothing or cannot afford those. The skills taught to the girls and the boys will be used forever and we will try to pass the same skills to other people. Once again, thank you very much for such a great work that you are doing."

"One of the main goals for Concordia Welfare & Education Foundation is to build strong, deep meaningful relationships which allow us to build trust with the local government, local school officials as well as the students and residents of the towns in which we work.
The MOST Ministries Asia Eyeglass Team had a very positive impact on the local leaders and residents. Most of the principals from the schools we worked with were very excited and happy to have the team come and serve. In fact, several of them even wanted to help serve and assist the team in any way possible to show their appreciation and support. The Mayor, who has a reputation of being very busy, took time out of his day to come and visit one of the schools, primarily because he had been hearing very positive reports and feedback from the principals.
I have worked with many organizations and groups in organizing teams and activities. Simply put -- Working with MOST Ministries is one of the most organized and easy experiences I have ever had. I enjoyed the easy, consistent ability to communicate. Then when the team arrived -- I thoroughly appreciated being able to focus on my job and tasks, never needing to worry about the MOST Ministries' team members."
