Grateful for a wheelchair
We had the opportunity while in Laos to go with the senior missionary's and give out three wheelchairs or what are called tricycles. The young boy (has cerebral palsy) who was about 10 had his previous wheelchair for about 5 years, you can tell by the looks of it that he was due for a new one. The two girls or women that you see are 22 and 23 years old. They both got polio when they were about 2 and have not been able to go to school or do to much. The roads are dirt so if they want to go anywhere they basically had to drag themselves down the dirt roads. Their family and friends gathered around as we came and were so excited for these girls.
