Townsend Hosts Free Vision Clinic

December 22, 2021 | Mission and Outreach | Kate Humphrey

On Oct. 1, 2021, Montana's Townsend Church hosted a free vision care clinic called Better Vision Better Hope.

The event served the local community by providing free eye screenings and offering a wide selection of eyewear frames. Andrea Schellenberg, event coordinator, worked with her family and church members to make the event a success. Oswald Rondon, ophthalmologist, performed eye exams with assistance from his family; wife, Betty; son, Amadeo and daughter, Amadis.

During the clinic, recorded hymns were played and literature, including writings of E.G. White, was shared. When requested, church elders would pray with guests.

A total of 43 people were served at the clinic. Some received prescriptions, some new frames and everyone received give-away-bags.

Two days after the event, the Rondon and Schellenberg families traveled to the neighboring town of Whitehall to hold a second event. The patients' new glasses were delivered to churches by Thanksgiving.
