Mission Work for 25+ years

Working in Honduras, Jamaica, Armenia, and Kenya.ef=http://paydaymaxgi


Mission Work for 25+ years at www.jyjones.com

J.Y. and Linda Jones have been going on medical mission trips since 1986, when Honduras was the destination (now 18 trips there). Since then they have participated in 27 mission trips, including six trips to Jamaica and two to Kenya. They try to make this an annual excursion, and their focus is not only doing cataract and other eye surgery, but also spreading the Gospel of Jesus Christ to hurting people. Up to this point J.Y. has done over 1,000 eye operations in these countries, and countless people have been exposed to the Gospel as a result. Most of his current mission work revolves around his Seven Summits Surgical Ventures, Inc, project (see www.sevensummitssurgical.com).
 
This year (2011) has taken the Joneses to new horizons in this aspect of the Lord's work. J.Y. went to Jamaica once more in July (his sixth mission trip there) to do surgery and evangelism with his partner, Dr. Glen Smalley, for a week. In August, J.Y. and Linda accomplished the difficult feat of climbing Mount Kilimanjaro (19,341 feet) at the age of 67, probably among the oldest couples to do this. After that climb both of them flew to Mombasa, Kenya, to work two weeks at the Lighthouse for Christ Eye Center, where J.Y. was kept busy with surgery and clinic patients. More details, and photos will be forthcoming and will be posted on this website and on J.Y.'s Facebook pages, but most information will be found on the Seven Summits site (above--still not live but in an exciting stage of development). The next mission trip will be with Medical Missions International in Bolivia in February, and his next climb will be a second attempt to climb Denali in Alaska in May-June of 2012. In January 2013 J.Y. attempts to climb lofty Cerro Aconcagua, the highest mountain in the world outside the Himilayas (22,841 feet). Please pray for safety and success in these endeavors.

Modern eye surgery is done in Honduras under an operating microscope. J.Y. has accumulated many items of modern equipment to provide the best in eye care in a developing country. Surgery done in Jamaica is now usually handled by his partners, leaving J.Y. free to concentrate on Honduras, where he puts his Spanish language skills to work to the fullest.

Eye surgery in Honduras requires a patch postoperatively most of the time, unlike in the USA, where the technique is usually slightly different. Every patient and their families hear a quality Gospel presentation by a hospital chaplain prior to their surgery. Many patients in Honduras (and Jamaica) are victims of total cataract, meaning they can see only light prior to their surgery. The patch is removed the following morning, and usually there are many happy faces all around. J.Y. likes to say that the Lord uses his hands to supply physical vision to the patient, while the work of the Holy Spirit often uses the occasion to impart spiritual vision to the patient and those who accompany him.
