Enlightening Eyes in Eswatini – Vol. 1.5 – Eyes on Eswatini – 2024 Tour!

Update from Jono Pons, MD

February 2024

Dear COS Family,

This year has been different to the past , as I’ve known more deeply than ever, that standing behind me are my brothers and sisters of Christian Ophthalmology Society, watching over me in prayer and helping us provide for growing eye care needs with material support.

The Spirit’s power is evident in the lives changed, whilst your steadfast support has lifted me up and blessed so many already.

Thank you COS Family!

From the COS Board:
Please prayerfully consider joining COS this Fall! It will be a great way to better understand  and support the work that Dr. Jono Pons and his team are doing in Eswatini, South Africa.

If you are interested, please email us.
