Mackenson, age 13, is doing much better since his stroke about two years ago. It is rare for a child to have a stroke, but one day while in school he had a stroke which left him paralyzed. He has been under therapy since then. He cannot play soccer or basketball, and walks dragging his leg, but his spirt is not broken.
We found Mackenson during a Mobile Medical Clinic far in the mountains. His father was holding him in his arms, and I thought that he was about two years old, but he was seven! He only “looked two” due to severe malnutrition. Usually, when children have had severe malnutrition, they have a hard time learning. But Mackenson is doing well. He wants to learn Spanish and be a “Spanish teacher!” With God, “all things are possible!” We love you, Mackenson!
