The Kind of StoriesThat Bring Tears To Your Eyes

While learning to walk my physical therapist Katie mentioned a medical missionary trip she had done to Papua New Guinea.  She explained that at one point, she had felt a little unsure why she was there, but there was a 13-year-old girl in one of these villages who had taken a 35 foot falll out of a tree and apparently suffered a spinal cord injury, with significant paralysis.  For Katie who specializes in rehab, this gave her something important to do, hekping this girl ti get back her ability to walk. 

Going to Papua New Guinea as a medical missionary,is real heroism.
