Need specialized ministry vehicles?
I'm a member of the Houghton Michigan Seventh-day Adventist Church. I am 72 years old and have revolutionary inventions that I believe reflect the Daniel 12:4 increase in knowledge in the last days. This invention could potentially save in natural resources and fuel, and I would like to use them to help finish the Lord's work. Visit my website at www.lowfloorvehicle.com to see pictures of my ideas for great mission vehicles that are very simple, robust, lightweight, fuel efficient, on or off-road, with amphibious capabilities. I have been building variations of these designs for over 40 years. -Ed Lahti

 Malia is a sweet, happy and beautiful 2 year old recently diagnosed with coarctation of the aorta. Coarctation of the aorta is a narrowing of the aorta, the main blood vessel carrying oxygen-rich blood from the left ventricle of the heart to all of the organs of the body. In the presence of a coarctation, the left ventricle has to work harder, since it must generate a higher pressure than normal to force blood through the narrow segment of the aorta to the lower part of the body.

The narrowing has to be fixed to prevent congestive heart failure or inadequate blood flow to the organs of the body. She is scheduled for surgery June 6. This is a very invasive surgery so she will spend one night in the Pediatric ICU and 2-3 nights on the Pediatric floor.

As you can imagine this surgery is not without expense. Wes & Joanie have a huge amount of medical bills that they will be having to pay following the surgery.
Thank you for your prayers they will mean so much to our family.
