One Reply to “2016 PET International Annual Conference September 22-24”

  1. If anyone near Indiana is interested in the Personal Energy Transportation wheelchairs (a.k.a., PETs), they are having their national conference in Wheatfield Sept. 22-24, 2016. Click on the poster for more information. I went a number of years ago and found it absolutely intriguing. It appears that they now have about 30 PET shops that build these miracles in motion around the US and world. PET-International is a vital ministry that enables the lame “rise up and walk,” in the spirit of Jesus. (“But Peter said, ‘I have no silver and gold, but what I do have I give to you. In the name of Jesus Christ of Nazareth, rise up and walk!’” Berean Study Bible)
    Interestingly, my husband, Herb, and I, along with nine McPherson College (Kansas) students, just delivered four more PETs to Ethiopia last week. In Ethiopia, recipients must be pre-identified with a photograph of each recipient, and three letters of reference for each.These need to be pre-approved by the local kebele. Our first PET years ago got held up in customs until we got all that information, and then, we had to pay a large fee to get them out of customs.
    To date, we’ve sent 28 PETs to Ethiopia, plus the first one which was sent to a severely handicapped young man in Lalibela. We continue to visit him each year on our visits. He is doing fairly well with it, but his one arm is now paralyzed, making it hard to navigate. He has requested a motorized PET to help him. If anyone has any suggestions on how we can get one to him, please let me know. Thanks so much for your missions of mercy!
