Parkview Adventist Academy

Students Volunteer in the Vision Clinic
February 26, 2019

OKLAHOMA CITY – Five in the morning in Burleson, Tex., is dark, silent and peaceful, but not at the Jellystone cabins from Sept. 18-21! Fourteen Parkview Adventist Academy students in grades 7-12 were waking up, showering, looking for food and preparing for a long but eventful day at the Will Rogers Arena in Fort Worth, Tex., for the Your Best Pathway to Health mega clinic. Not knowing what to expect, the group began their day and finished it serving hundreds of people in the vision clinic. Sophomore Jeramy Perez shares his experience: “Today we were able to get the last bit of people in vision. We served around 1,100 people. Thank God for that! Getting to translate for them was such a blessing for them and me. Without all the translators, all the Spanish-speaking people wouldn’t be able to do it. Not only was I able to help them through the process, I had a chance to get to know them better. This was one of my greatest experiences in my life and I’m so glad I got to be there to be a servant to other people.”
