Santa Has Reindeer, and Yorito has PETs!

Good Morning Amigos,

Christmas comes but once a year.  We think about it all year long.  We look to the exchange of presents with great anticipation.  We hope a holiday snow arrives right on time, and we hope Aunt Mildred's fruitcake doesn't.  Most of all, we look forward to a chance to share the love symbolized in Jesus' birth.

One way C.D. and Linda Tripp's "Feed My Sheep" team have arranged for a little love to be wrapped up and delivered with care to Yorito, Yoro, Honduras is by making AHMEN a distributor for The PET Project.  

Back in 1996, Larry Hills and Earl Miner developed the Personal Energy Transportation devices to help victims in Zaire crippled by polio and land mines to be more mobile.  Today, PETs have been placed all over the world, and AHMEN serves as a distribution partner.

Think about how much less mobile your grandparents or parents, even your spouses or children, would be without the use of their canes and walkers.  Now just imagine about how much one of these PET devices would change their lives if they had lost the use of their legs!  Spreading dignity is sharing the gospel.

In 2014, won't you consider joining AHMEN in sharing justice with the world?  You can make the distribution of PET devices your "pet" project.  You can join or lead a team to Honduras.  You can help organize fundraisers, and/or you can begin sponsoring a project like the 3-year community development workshops in Yorito, Jutiapa, and Cusuna known locally as the AHMEN-SIFAT Initiative.  You can also serve as one of the many prayer warriors asking God to daily bless our efforts to better partner with Honduran communities.

Contact me here today for more information about how to join a team, sponsor a project like ASI, or just to talk.

Together, we are the difference.
