Catalyst Project

Catalyst Project

Facilitating wheelchair services through faith-based hospitals in low-resource countries.

2018 was a big year for us.  We can look back on about a half a year’s work full time on the AT Catalyst project.  It started with taking a big leap, leaving our jobs at LeTourneau and selling our house. Then there was a long trip to present the project to great people in Texas, Tennessee, Illinois, Kansas, Colorado, Wyoming, Montana and finally Alberta.  That loop included interactions with Samaritan’s Purse and being part of a great conference with IDEAS.  In September and October, we set up our new home base in Alberta. We were back on the road in November to the Global Missions Health Conference and meetings with the Christian Medical and Dental Association.   Then in November, Karen was off to Egypt leading a group to interact with two faith-based hospitals there.  On the way home, in the UK she was able to meet with researchers at the Global Disability Innovation Hub.  God is doing amazing things.  Many thanks to all of you who made this possible!!  Stay posted for more great doors opening in 2019.

For me, the biggest Christmas present was the news that ground has been broken to build a wheelchair clinic at Joytown in Kenya.  You were a part of that. It makes us glad to think of all the children who will be helped and cared for.

Getting the ground ready for a new clinic.

Thanks for partnering with us now and in the new year.
