Single PET cart reaches disabled man in Yambio, South Sudan

We got a PET over there successfully and assembled it and here is Stephen, the recipient. He makes the chairs on the back and so now can use the PET not only for his personal mobility but also to take his chairs to customers.But I just wanted you to know it did work out; we had to repackage it in 2 boxes of 50 lbs each for Delta to take it as luggage for free(included in ticket). then we paid for it to get flown in on the missionary flight from Uganda to SSudan. But it all went well and now you can see ONE person helped by your device…..

In Christ,

“JESUS, THY BOUNDLESS LOVE TO ME,
NO THOUGHT CAN REACH, NO TONGUE DECLARE;
UNITE MY THANKFUL HEART TO THEE,
AND REIGN WITHOUT A RIVAL THERE
THINE WHOLLY, THINE ALONE I AM
BE THOU ALONE, MY CONSTANT FLAME.”
