After a nice long sleep (going to bed around 8:30pm and waking up around 9:00) we got up, fueled up on coffee and we were out the door.
We started our day by visiting the young boys who suffer from muscular dystrophy, William and Raul. We are purchasing batteries for their wheelchairs so that they can have better use of them throughout the day, making them more mobile. We are working through the details of finding the best and most effective batteries that will stayed charged, which may require obtaining one from the larger city of Monterrey, but this dream will be fulfilled, and we hope very soon.
Next we travelled to Jesus, a man who recently got hit by a car while riding his bike and had to have his intestines repaired as well as major operations on his broken legs so that he could maybe walk again. He is doing much better after having surgery that was supported partially by iam1ru supporters. Through the assistance of a wheel chair he is somewhat mobile. However, the doctor's orders are for him to be up on his feet more. So, Rick and Lisa purchased a walker for Jesus and he was thrilled, a little nervous to try and stand, but from the joy on his face, this walker will change this man's life greatly.
The day was concluded by some touring of Linares, a chicken feast at the Bursey's, some fireworks compliment of the boys (Alex and Jackson) and then some quality bonding time around the house.
