PT Missios 3.jpgI praise you, for I am fearfully and wonderfully made. Wonderful are your works; my soul knows it very well. Psalm 139:14

We have each been made in the image and likeness of God, even though we all differ in our skills, talents and abilities. Acknowledging and appreciating our differences, and using our talents to serve the Lord for the good of others, is the basis of our HSU PT Ministries program.  We need your help in our powerful ministry that impacts hundreds of lives!  During the summer of 2018, our students and faculty will be conducting a “Wheels for the World” outreach in Lima, Peru.  This spiritual and educational opportunity allows us to provide a means of mobility to individuals who often cannot leave their homes or be part of their church or surrounding community. Through the customization of refurbished wheelchairs, walkers, canes and crutches, those marginalized by society will now be included and their gifts will be discovered! During our time with each patient and his/her family, we share the love of the Lord and encourage them to praise the Lord for His goodness.

PT MIssions.jpgThe total cost of this trip is $80,000 for 28 students and 6 Faculty. In 2017 we customized and distributed 172 wheelchairs, 48 walkers, 11 crutches, and 19 canes.  God’s word was brought to all, and 115 decisions were made to place their faith in Christ.  This outreach is powerful.  It provides our students with the true meaning of “an education enlightened by faith.” 

YOU can play an integral role in the success of our ministry.  Please be generous with your prayerful and monetaryPT missions 2.jpg donations.  As a program, we are committed to this evangelization and utilization of our gifts given by the Lord.
