"The orthopedic tent on the dock is where the children who have had orthopedic surgery to straighten their legs come and have physical therapy for several weeks or months. To liven it up, the Elementary art classes made decorations. They used hand and footprints of the staff and patients and put them on posters." --Catherine SchwebelIt was fun to take a few minutes and hang up decorations and pray for the work that goes on in the Ortho Tent.
|Even Emma was able to get in on the action. |
She's quite the hole puncher.

And now (drum roll if you like)....a really cool time lapse video that shows the goings on of the Ortho Tent (aka Physical Therapy Tent) on any given morning:
It's pretty incredible to think of the work that is done within that tent each day. Casts are being changed. People are learning to walk...either again or for the first time. Body parts are being strengthened...and courage is being gained in the process. Smiles and laughter are being shared. Hope and healing are being brought to this earth through the physical therapists and their team.
Thank you, God for the Ortho Tent and the team that works within. Thank you for all that you are accomplishing in it and through it. Please pour out your healing through these faithful volunteers. Establish the work of their hands and minds. Thank you for the patients and their families and the life that they are receiving within the tent on the dock. Thank you that the lame are indeed walking - your Word is coming alive in the Ortho Tent. Hallelujah!
Surely there will be more to come!
