Sharing Vision with Area Scouts

Lowcountry area scouts decoding Braille



Here, Lowcountry area Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts "try their hands" at decoding a braille message, as they work to earn their Merit Badges for Disabilities Awareness.

I was honored to join my own outreach with that of Dixie Land Guide Dog Users, whose "Paws To Educate" Initiative is made possible in part by the Charleston, South Carolina Association for the Blind.

In addition to Braille, we discussed long, white canes and guide dogs, how to be a sighted guide and a variety of other topics related to the blindness community. Here I am demonstrating the Perkins Brailler.

My thanks to The Association, Dixie Land GDU, these enthusiastic young people, their leaders and parents, for the opportunity to be part of such an interactive discussion!

Thank God and thank you! Your ongoing prayers and support help keep my ministry, and outreach like this, growing and going!

Stay tuned for more posts like this. Until next time, God bless you and keep His Song in your heart!

About Me

My photo
United States
God has blessed me with a Music Ministry that is still ongoing and growing after twenty-plus years. This includes my outreach promoting Braille Literacy in the Christian venue, and my recently-founded Children's Chaplaincy for blind youth. To make things a bit more interesting, I have also been blind since birth. I consider my blindness to be a unique gift from God, an opportunity to serve as an ambassador among blind and sighted folks of all ages, on all walks of life.
