In West Texas, Christians ramp up efforts to help family in need
The Odessa American in Texas reports:
A man-made miracle occurred on Saturday when ABLE Center, Interim Hospice and 6th and Jackson Church of Christ joined together to build a ramp for a family who hasn’t left their home in three years.
The ABLE Center, in conjunction with the Texas Ramp Project, have been building ramps for citizens around the Permian Basin for three years and were in West Odessa to help with a particularly touching story involving a man with Alzheimer’s and his wife.
Manuel and Margaret Fowler were greeted this morning by 17 volunteers who donated their time to see the couple return to the outdoors, a place where, according to Mrs. Fowler, they haven’t been able to enjoy together for a few years.
“This will mean the world to me, and I know it will to him as well, it’s been almost three years since he has been outside,” Mrs. Fowler said. “He asks me all the time if I will take him outside on the front porch, but we just haven’t been able to do that.”
