ABC WEDNESDAY LETTER " P "



Its time again to POST another addition of ABC Wednesday.
We're at the letter " P ".
I wanted to continue by showing a few more PICTURES from
my Mission trip to Mexico.
The first PHOTO is entitled PRAYER.
This lovely elderly woman was housebound with a PLETHORA of ailments.
The biggest being her inability to walk on her own.
She was upset that she couldn't PARTICIPATE in her local church services.
We PRAYED with her and gave her food to help her for a short time.



It was truly thrilling to PASS out to a hospital, a nursing home and
some PHYSICALLY needy PEOPLE ,90 wheelchairs PLUS walkers and crutches.

I am PLEASED to report that the PRECIOUS woman
 in the PREVIOUS PHOTO was able to receive one of the wheelchairs.
It will give her such PEACE of mind to have the ability to actually leave her home now.
The organization "Joni and Friends...Wheels Around the World" and
a PRISON in the Bakersfield area (inmates refurbish the chairs back to
PRISTINE condition) donated a total of 200 wheelchairs, walkers and crutches.
They were all loaded into a box truck and brought over the border.
This equipment made the POSSIBILITY of renewed life for many.




I just had to share these two PHOTOS of this PERKY little girl.
Don't you just love her concentration on the PINK PIECE of
bubble gum?



I had to PERSERVERE to finally get a PICTURE of her PROFILE.
She was constantly POPPING from one thing to another.
At last she PLOPPED down for a few seconds and I snapped this shot.
Honestly she had more PEP than the rest of us all rolled into one.
PLEASE enlarge each PHOTOGRAPH to see all the POIGNANT details.

This is definitely a topic that closes to me so I’m happy that you wrote about it. I’m also happy that you did the subject some justice. Not only do you know a great deal about it, you know how to present in a way that people will want to read more. I’m so happy to know someone like you exists on the web.

How wonderful to be able to give some independence to those unable to get around. They look well restored.
The pink bubblegum certainly stands out, to stretch or blow bubbles, what a dilemma:-)
