"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)

More parts donations!

Yesterday I went to pick up more donated parts from a prosthetic facility in Garland, TX. I've been trying to do a little networking with other prosthetists I know to see if anyone has old parts they can donate for the mission. I had spoken with a classmate of mine who is in Tucson, and she contacted another prosthetist in Garland who had a lot of parts he could give. So wonderful! 

Two big boxes with close to 20 feet, adapters, pylons and five knees. The knees are especially exciting since the majority of the amputees in Zambia have above-knee amputations...we definitely need some options for knees. We managed to fit the boxes in the back of my Fiat...a little game of tetris but it worked. A big THANK YOU to John MacGregor at Hanger Clinic of Garland for his donation of these used parts. 

I will take all of these parts to Chris September 1st when we talk with my home church, FUMC of Clifton, about the mission trip. I am so excited to introduce Chris and John to my church family in Clifton and share with them about our trip.
