March 28 Day Camp

Our first day camp of 2015 was a success! It did not go as scheduled (which isn't that unusual in such day camps), but it was strong start. I even got to illustrate faith through a trust fall.

Deer Necklace

We gave our friend a special necklace given to us by Joni Eareckson Tada. This necklace was designed by a lady named Tracy, who suffered from a car accident while attending Baylor several years ago. The necklace displays the image of a deer described in Isaiah 35:6, and our friend is wearing it with joy. He didn't even want to remove the necklace tag. I imagine he will wear it every day.

Then the lame will leap like a deer,
    and the mute tongue shout for joy.
Water will gush forth in the wilderness
    and streams in the desert.
~ Isaiah 35:6

Global Access Conference

In February, we had the privilege of being a part of the Global Access Conference hosted by Joni and Friends. It was tremendous. There were so many amazing aspects of the conference. One of these highlights was being able to eat lunch with Joni Eareckson Tada and her husband, Ken.

Talent Show & Art Exhibit 2014

This year's talent show and art exhibit for individuals with disabilities was beautiful. Individuals danced, sang, played instruments and spoke about their inner strength. The paintings, crafts, calligraphy and other artwork were stunning.

Caregiving Training

One of the best ways to improve the quality of life for individuals with disabilities and their families is through caregiving training and encouragement. Today's focus was caregiving for physical disabilities, especially Cerebral palsy. Additionally, we provided activities for the kids.

Remote Medical Clinic

The town square at night
Numerous horses, sheep and cows moved freely in the grasslands.
Our medical team of 31 people included 6 doctors, 3 nurses, a pharmacist, a physical therapist and several translators and support staff.
 Our off-roading bus got stuck in the sand.
 Our trip to the yurt was quite memorable.
 Inside the yurt with Morgan’s family
 Sam is the medical team leader for the GHO clinic.  
The team served nearly 900 patients during the week of the clinic.
It was great to visit friends from last year.
 Time to travel back! The amount of stuff we had caused heads to turn.
