Elizabeth City, NC – January 25, 2013 – Mid-Atlantic Christian University (MACU) President Clay Perkins and Gene Langley, Chairman of the Board of Trustees, will travel to Thailand early next month. They hope to take many pairs of donated eyeglasses with them.

Perkins and Langley will be visiting Ezekiel Fish, a 1990 graduate of MACU, and the mission work he founded and directs, Good News Mission.
