Transforming lives Through Jesus With Disabled People

Day One

Breakfast of scrambled eggs then leave at 8.00am for 45 minute drive to America Latina school. During the journey I found a caterpillar on the front seat, and rather than throw him out of the window I held on to him before arriving at the school and putting him on a leaf. The caterpillar is a useful analogy of what we are doing here – every single disabled child is like a caterpillar, which, with the right support and encouragement can eventually be transformed into a beautiful butterfly. Delivered training to 90+ student teachers. It went really well and the team gelled together. Philippa was inspiring, sharing her personal experience of being blind from birth and one highlight was doing an inclusive dance which involved everyone. The students gave good feedback and were very receptive, particularly 10 or so who ‘got’ the inclusive message and we know will be great advocates for disabled children in their classroom so a really good start. Lunch of chicken tortillas.
