Sponsor a Team Member
Continuing the work we started eight years ago, we provide steady shipments of supplies routed all over the states and even from Europe …heading to Ghana.
Providing a prosthetic limb is not a “one-time” event, but is instead a lifetime commitment to the patient, and the ongoing training we provide is just as critical as the supplies we ship. We recruit prosthetists from around the country who volunteer their time and talents to work in the fully functional lab we helped equip in a partnership with the government of Ghana. Their expertise and training is what’s helping make the National Prosthetics and Orthotics Centre in Accra a place of hope, possibilities, and help to hundreds and hundreds of amputees.
Here are a few team members you can support for an immediate need for an April 2013 trip.
Randy Roberson is preparing for his 9th trip with Standing With Hope, and continues to be a tremendous leader, instructor, and friend. Taking on particularly challenging cases, Randy’s three decades of experience as a prosthetist continues to help us address even the most difficult of patient circumstances.
Randy brings a powerful testimony of God’s salvation in his own life …and he is not only a certified prosthetist with thirty years of experience, but is also an ordained minister. Those two professions uniquely qualify Randy for the work of this ministry …who has served as team leader on several occasions. The most familiar sight of Randy is his ever present sweat-soaked towel draped around his neck (see picture at top of page), as he works with a passion, purpose, and dedication that comes from a man who loves his craft , and, more importantly …loves his Savior.
Nearly thirty years ago, Standing With Hope founder, Gracie Rosenberger, experienced a car accident that left her family and friends reeling as they witnessed a tragic event …and the ensuing 70+ surgeries and multiple amputations that seemed to forever change a young girl’s life.
It did change her life, as well as the lives of a great many others. Help us add more changed lives to the story by sponsoring Randy for a trip in April to Ghana.
We recruit prosthetists and physical therapists to travel with us …and they raise their support and volunteer their time. Your help is always appreciated in sending these professionals overseas in order for them to impart their skills …and heart for the Gospel.
