"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)

Expanding Love!

There have been lots of awesome connections happening for PPIHN! God is SO GOOD!

First, we had a PPIHN board meeting on May 6th in Temple. This was a fantastic meeting before Ron and Dee Winsman leave for their move to New Day Orphanage, Zambia. There is a great story in the Temple newspaper about Ron and Dee. Check it out here. I also managed to hurriedly take some pictures of everyone before we got started with the meeting...and clearly no one was aware I was doing this.

We are so thankful for such an awesome group of board members! We had great discussions about how far PPIHN has come since 2012, plans for this year's trip in September to Zambia and plans for the future.

The future....  

Prosthetic Promises is excited to announce we will be partnering with United With The Same Love for sustainable prosthetic mission work in HONDURAS! 

Unidos Con el Mismo Amor, Inc. (United With the Same Love) is a nonprofit organization designed to meet the needs of Central Americans through training programs for Dental Assistants, Dental Hygienists, and nurses.  Unidos Con el Mismo Amor, through its trips to Honduras, works to spread the Good News of Christ by spreading dental health through the nation.

Such an awesome way that God puts people in our paths. Jane is who started United With the Same Love. She is a close friend of one of my new bosses, Phyllis. Phyllis and Jane have been talking about starting prosthetic mission work through the clinic United With the Same Love has in Honduras and made a trip in early 2015 for contacts and discussions about the need for prosthetic services in the area. And then I started working for Phyllis in February of this year. Whoa!

We are in the early stages of discussions and planning with United With the Same Love for Prosthetic Promises to work from their established clinic in Choluteca and with connections they have in the capital city of Tegucigalpa. 

We will be purchasing and sending equipment to have at this clinic for regular trips to provide people in Honduras with prostheses. We have not identified when our first trip will be, since we will need to raise funds for all the equipment needed and have that shipped to Honduras. Thankfully, shipping containers make it to Honduras much faster than they do Zambia. :)

Stay tuned for updates on both Zambia and Honduras. How very exciting to see where God is leading Prosthetic Promises!!
