3. Sarah Hill – The Gift of Mobility

Sarah HillSarah Hill accompanied a PET distribution team in Vietnam and shares what she experienced in this third episode of MissionCast.  PET stands for personal energy transportation.  It is a three wheel hand cranked vehicle that provides mobility for those who have lost the use of their legs.  The first PETs were made in Mel West’s (former director of the Office of Creative Ministries) garage and now are mass produced by volunteers in Columbia and many other places around the country.  A gift to PET of $250 will produce and ship a PET to people in need in Vietnam or anywhere else in the world.  Sarah Hill is a member of Community United Methodist Church, in Columbia, and is part of the KOMU-TV news team.

Sadly, video viewing on the internet while becoming very popular, pretty much requires a high speed internet connection.  At home I only have a dial-up connection and it maybe that dial-up is all you have as well.  If you are willing to wait 5-10 mins for the download you can still view the low resolution version of MissionCast.
Happy viewing,
