Peru, the 6th Day
Today was a great day. We loaded the bus and drove to the build site where we spent over 6 hours putting together 100 wheelchairs with a group from the church we are doing this mission through, Camino de Vida.
When we arrived, we had to pull the boxes from the third floor and take them to the second floor where we built them. My wife, the beautiful Mimi, and I were a team. We belted out about 10 or 11 wheelchairs!
It was great.
It was one of those times where I listen to my wife and do everything she tells me. She is very mechanically inclined. I am not. She created the plan of attack for the wheelchairs and it was the perfect one!
We were able to get a chair done almost every 30 minutes.
Here is a video of the build.
Finally, here are a few pictures of the day.
Tomorrow is our last day in Peru. We will leave the mission house at 7 AM and head to the build site where we will get together with the government, the doctors, and the church to distribute the wheelchairs.
We were asked by our guide to pick one of 4 areas that we want to be placed in:
- Carrying people
When tomorrow comes we will be finding out what each of those entail, but I guarantee that it will be well worth it.
