PCBC Mission Trip: Lighthouse for Christ Eye Center and Mission
Prayerfully planning to return to Africa in summer of 2024 to serve with LightHouse for Christ and African Christian Outreach, more details by January 2024
ABOUT LIGHTHOUSE FOR CHRIST
Join us to learn more about visiting The Lighthouse for Christ, an eye clinic and hospital that was established in 1964 by Dr. Bill Ghrist, an ophthalmologist from California who moved his family to Mombasa to become a full-time medial missionary.
Today, Lighthouse for Christ has 70 employees, three full time eye doctors and is directed by Dr. Ghrist's grandson and his wife, Josh and Maggie Ghrist. In additional to offering medical care, Lighthouse trains pastors and has aided in planting 80 churches in and around the Mombasa area. Each year the mission sees over 30,000 patients and performs several thousand eye surgeries, most for people who have no means to pay for medical care.
The mission statement for Lighthouse is to heal physical and spiritual blindness on the East Coast of Africa. After receiving the gift of sight, many of our patients accept Christ as their Savior. Just last year, Lighthouse led over 2,000 people into a personal relationship with Jesus.
