"I worked with a mission team to rebuild the home of an elderly woman who was living under poverty lines. She became ill and needed a wheelchair ramp built to access her home and go about her day to day. This was someone's mother and grandmother. Because of our work, it is much easier to care for her and she can live a more seamless lifestyle like she did before becoming ill. We all have hardships and when people come together to enrich the lives of others, it is the most beautiful part of the interworking within a community."
