One of the greatest joys we have in LifeNets is  is when we see the efforts of several people result in a benefit to someone in great need.  This is one of those stories that involved FINDING a wheelchair, delivering it from Ohio to Kenya to DELIVERY. 

John Elliott writes to us from Kenya:

Jambo Victor from Nairobi, Kenya.

The young adults who accompanied me on a three-week trip to hold a summer camp for teens and visit congregations in Western Kenya are preparing to start our flights home tonight. Our final afternoon in Nairobi was highlighted with a visit to the crippled child whose family had requested a wheelchair for him through LifeNets. Antonio Ndung’u forwarded the request from Nairobi to me in Phoenix. It went from there to you in Indianapolis and we asked our traveling companion,  Jeremy Lallier in Cincinnati to be its courier. At LifeNets, Alex Kubik procured the wheelchair and got it to Jeremy who took it aboard his Air France flights to Kenya. Today we all helped deliver and present it on behalf of LifeNets to little Edwin Kangethe Ndung’u in Ngong town, which is located just up the road from Karen Blixen’s farm featured in the film, “Out of Africa.” 

Here are some photos of the presentation to the happy little boy who received it with enthusiasm.

Thanks to you and your LifeNets family who look out for their neighbors around the globe,

John Elliott
