Local Middle Schoolers Volunteer

The day before leaving Japan (Tuesday), Mary Esther was at the wheelchair cleaning day conducting an orientation for volunteers from a top-tier Middle School, a teacher and 6 students.  The school had approached the city office asking for a nearby NPO where their students could do volunteer work, and city office recommended Wheelchairs of Hope! Once again, we saw our amazing God open doors. The students lived up to their reputation for being bright and working hard.  They will be coming for their 5th hour class (2-4 PM) every week from now on.  To see a photo visit Wheelchairs of Hope on facebook.

PS. It seems especially fitting that the other school that sent students is a Special Ed. school!
