60. PET of Southwest Missouri – Aurora – Gift of Mobility

ShopPET of Southwest Missouri is located near Aurora. We interviewed Jim Wrinkle, the president, to learn about this PET production site. Interest in PET began several years ago when Jim’s Sunday School Class, at the Aurora United Methodist Church, raised money for three PETs. They wanted to do more and they did. Year before last they produced 100 PETs. Last year they built and shipped 150 and this year their goal is to exceed 500 PETs. MissionCast, episode 60, will show and tell how they are rapidly growing and involving more and more churches and people in their new mobility ministry. The day we taped this MissionCast most of the volunteer builders were from the Catholic Church, in Aurora. All of this means of course that more and more people are receiving what most of us take for granted which is the Gift of Mobility. You can make a difference too by donating $250, which is the cost of producing and shipping a PET. Send your gift to the Office of Creative Ministries, 3009 David Drive, Columbia, MO 65202 and note on your check “Festival of Sharing-PET Aurora.”
