I SERVED AS EYES FOR THE BLIND. [Job 29:15] [NLT]
In the early 1950s, armed with a certification in Braille transcription and a Perkins Brailler, Mildred Whitney joined Job as “eyes for the Blind.” As a volunteer, she began hand punching Braille Bible studies. Her self-sacrifice was the genesis of a ministry that continues to grow after more than sixty years thanks to many thousands of volunteer hours and hundreds of volunteers
Migrating from cassettes to digital audio has opened up a wide door of opportunity for volunteers. People willing to record books and literature with computers and other digital recording devices can make a world of Christian treasures accessible to people who are not able to read printed materials. If you are interested in joining Job and Sister Whitney in becoming “eyes for the Blind” please contact the Center for the Blind of the Assemblies of God for more information.
A Word From His Word
I will lead blind Israel down a new path, guiding them along an unfamiliar way. I will brighten the darkness before them and smooth out the road ahead of them. Yes, I will indeed do these things; I will not forsake them. [Isaiah 42:16] [NLT]
