"Each of you should use whatever gift you have received to serve others, as faithful stewards of God’s grace in its various forms. If anyone speaks, they should do so as one who speaks the very words of God. If anyone serves, they should do so with the strength God provides, so that in all things God may be praised through Jesus Christ. To him be the glory and the power for ever and ever. Amen."
1 Peter 4:10-11 (NIV)


Since I'm new to this whole blog thing, I hope posts and info improve as I go along. My intent with making a blog is to keep family, friends, and supporters of this mission informed about the process and trip in April 2014. 

The background story:
   Chris Reiff and John Brinkley made their first trip (of hopefully many more in the future) to Zambia, Africa in September 2012 to make prosthetic legs and eyes for people in need. John is fortunate to know the Tidwells from New Day Orphanage in Zambia who coordinated with them for their trip to connect the people in need of prostheses there with Chris and John.
   I worked with Chris and John for two years during my residency in Temple, Texas in orthotics and prosthetics where I came to know them like family (and now John is family!) and their love for Christ and His people. They have taught me so much, not just in our profession of prosthetics, but in life, love for people, and growing closer to Christ everyday. I miss working with them everyday but am unbelievably excited to work with them again for this great mission. 
 They have set up a non-profit, Prosthetic Promises In His Name, to raise funds for supplies and costs for the trip.
