PET Owners Exclaim “What a Difference”
|The Luke Commission team met Joseph Sitsebe on the road to a mobile hospital site one morning recently. He said he travels over hills, rocks, and gravel to get up and down mountains in his PET crank cart. Usually he carries his crutches in the back of his cart.Ana Metiso lives alone in the Timphisini, Swaziland. She crawls or climbs to get in and out of her crank cart. She works from her PET selling vegetables, goes to the market, and visits friends. “I’m in my cart every day, all day,” she said with great joy.

Dear PET administrators and Affiliates,
Thank you for you all do to give mobility to the dear people of Swaziland. Enclosed are questionnaires, a short story, and photos of just a few PET carts which The Luke Commission gives away at every mobile hospital site. It’s a tremendous privilege, new each time a Swazi with pride and gratitude is seated in a life-changing cart. Our staff takes great pride in assembling the carts and explaining how to care for carts and repair them.
Dr. Harry VanderWal explains to new recipients that the carts are given, for as long as they need them, from people in the United States who love Jesus. Harry emphasizes that the cart belongs to the village, so it will be passed down to others who are needy in the future. The smiles, clapping, and abundant joy permeate the presentation of each new PET cart. We can’t thank you enough for partnering with The Luke Commission to reach the folks in the rural areas who are often overlooked and forgotten.
To God be the glory!
Janet Tuinstra from all the TLC team
