For Summerland freelance writer Rick Cogbill, the stimulus was a visit to Mozambique with his daughter (who was working as a nurse for South Africa Ministries) followed by an emergency trip to a cardiac care unit in Alberta. Empathy and a sense of mortality collided.
During the month-long African visit Rick helped local SAM staff repair broken-down vehicles. In rural Mozambique, trades education is hard to find and financially out of reach for most. "Although they were willing workers, they lacked even the most basic skills training necessary for the job. They asked me to come back," says Rick.
Later, during his hospital stay, he found the book Axioms by Bill Hybels. The chapter entitled What Life Are You Waiting For? caught his attention. "It's often during those times we begin to think about what it is we're doing with our lives and more precisely, what are we going to leave behind?"
At that moment, Rick, a licensed automotive mechanic, decided to start Mercy Tech Mission, an organization that provides opportunities for seasoned trades people to go to Third World countries and teach their trade to the locals. "We come as guests to their culture," says Rick, "and make a point of looking for ways to make our knowledge practical in their situation."
