Leadership transition continues at Wheelchairs of Hope. Though my resignation won’t be official until June 6 at the annual business meeting, I no longer function as board chair. It’s so nice to be able to focus on connecting with the volunteers, and getting my hands dirty on real wheelchairs without the weight of the system on my shoulders. The transition process, though not all smooth sailing, sees those better positioned than myself taking the helm and making the necessary changes. Thank you for praying! Please continue to pray for the board of directors and for Mr. Tani, the new director.

Meanwhile, the community of volunteers continues to flourish. Cleaning days generally have between 15 and 30 people, many of them regulars. Last week we had 56. We expect to send a container with 120 chairs to northern Thailand May 28.
