  • A Day at the Clinic

    Our third clinic was at a school named Vusweni. It was truly an incredible drive into the mountainous part of Swaziland, with incredible scenery everywhere. When we got to the clinic, we got to see the school kids sing a few songs for us. It's amazing how entire schools of kids in Swaziland can sing together in unison.

  • His PET Gives Independence & Mobility

    Dumsani Dlamini came to a Luke Commission mobile hospital outreach to see the doctor and hopefully to receive some medications for his aches and pains. He came “driving” his PET cart, though the road was especially muddy that day. “As long as the chain in greased, I move,” he laughed. The 40-year-old Swazi has not been able to walk since birth. Last year when TLC came to his community, he was given a PET so he could be a little more independent and move around on his own.

  • Coffee, Cream and Core Values

    Students from a nearby university sip from mugs and work on laptops in a central Ohio coffee shop owned by an Air Force Reserve officer and his son. Portraits of 19th-century presidents and U.S. flags from the era contribute to an atmosphere that Maj. Craig Minor describes as an 1800s coffee bar. As the students work inside, other customers have conversations outside on a deck that overlooks the headwaters of Massie Creek and the stone walls that inspired Stoney Creek Roasters’ name.
