Eyecare Beyond West Michigan; Medical Missions
For the past several years, Dr. Brian Konynenbelt has traveled to Gracias, Honduras, with a group of medical professionals and volunteers from the West Michigan community. The goal of the trip each year to is practice alongside Honduran medical professionals providing dental, eye, gastric, and primary medical care to the underserved in the province of Lempira, Honduras.
The trip is organized through the Luke Society whose motto is to 'touch lives in Jesus name'. Though many surgeries and tooth extractions change villagers lives for the better each year, any brigadeer who has taken part in the mission will tell you serving the poor impacts their heart and gives them a better appreciation for the way of life we have learned to take for granted in West Michigan.
