New Addition Provides PET Assembly, Painting, and Storage Area (fully completed April 2010)

After years of operating PET-Kansas out of Kirby’s muffler shop, a larger area was needed for building PETs. For many years generous people provided space to store finished PETs in barns, garages, etc. Recently, Keith Timmermeyer of Peabody gave us a building to enlarge the shop. We also purchased a container at very reasonable cost to store the PETs before shipment.

Thanks to many of you who have generously been part of this exciting endeavor. Our desire is to serve Jesus Christ by providing mobility to many of God’s needy children. If you can help with costs of the PET-Kansas’ facility and its mission, it will be very much appreciated.

Insulation was sprayed inside for warmth. No interior beams were needed, allowing more space for sawing, welding, assembling and painting PETs. The new facility has an office (the door on left) for visitors to view videos and discuss PET-Kansas’ missions. The space is truly a God-send.

New board members, Lois and Gerald Neher, toured the facility with Kirby and Chris while it was under construction. The Nehers were missionaries in Nigeria for many years and bring a special understanding of the needs of PET recipients in developing countries.

A donated building recently doubled the work area of the PET-Kansas shop. This much-needed space gives us more room to organize production.

Each PET-Kansas delivery to Honduras involves building at least 193 PETs. These are given to PET recipients.At left Kirby is beside Ashley Williams, coordinator of our trips to Honduras.

We also needed a place to store PETs until their shipping date each April. Kirby found a good price on a 53’ x 102” container. This will save time so we can build more PETs. We already have 121 PETs stored in it for our next mission. When full, the container will hold about 193 PETs, plus sewing machines and Bibles
