What does Mobility have to do with coolers?

How would you like to give a cooler & a business opportunity?

Mobility Worldwide MO-Columbia Update: 924 built since 1-1-17

Persons who receive Mobility Carts often have three responses.

First, they experience pure joy at receiving the gift of mobility. For the first time in many years, they are able to move about, to look people in the eye, to be social. A huge smile often accompanies their inner joy.

Second, they ask the question, “Why would someone a half a world away, whom I can never thank personally, who does not even know me, do this for me?”

Third, They ask, “How can I use this cart to help make a living for myself, and to pay back those who have for so long supported me?” Continue reading “What does Mobility have to do with coolers?”

Mobility Worldwide helps those that have drawn the “short-straw” in life

Maker of the PET Mobility Cart since 1994.

Can you use your ‘long straw’ to help provide Mobility Carts?

Give the Gift of Mobility, Dignity, and Opportunity!

I grew up in a “short-straw/long straw” culture. My grade-school teacher in our one-room school used broom straws to teach us some facts of life. In a playground game such as “Andy-over” someone had to be picked to choose first in picking teams. Ms. Mary Christner got a straw from a broom, broke two pieces off, hid them in her hand, and the one that got the long straw got to pick first for their team. She reminded us that life was like that. Sometimes we got the long straw, and sometimes the short straw. But we all had to learn to play fairly together.

I want to introduce you readers to a very special group of God’s people, those who are called His “little people”. The older term was “dwarfs”, and I think the medical term is dwarfism. It has been my privilege to work closely with two such persons. In the 1970s here in the USA we were trying to get businesses and public places to be accessible for persons with handicapping conditions. My church mission work started the “MOTH Ministry”, Ministry Of The Handicapped. Our goal was to encourage and enable local churches to become accessible; most were not. The chairperson of that MOTH Committee was Edna Jo Steinbeck. She stood 28 inches tall, but in spirit she was eight feet tall. When she stood on a high stool to speak at annual conference the churches paid attention. When she was 34, I had the sad privilege of presiding at her funeral.

“Divine Spark” makes thousands of Mobility Carts possible each year

Maker of the PET Mobility Cart since 1994.

How brightly does your ‘divine spark’ shine?

Mobility Worldwide MO-Columbia update

This morning was one of those rare times when the song from “Oklahoma” came to mind – what a beautiful morning. Seventy-one degrees it was, a slight breeze, bright sunshine and a clear sky. Our cat Pumpkin checked and sniffed everything I did as I worked a few hours on our hillside flower garden, weeding, mulching, nipping old blooms, and doing what I call cosmetic work. Our Mocking bird burst forth in song from the top of the tallest walnut tree, and a blue jay dropped down to scold and tease Pumpkin. It was a good moment to be alive.
