“ ‘ For know the plans I have for you’ says the Lord. ‘ They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope. ‘ “
(Jeremiah 29:11 NIV)
A hospital representative called to say that they were cleaning a closet in a closed orthopedic office and wondered if Mission Central could use a box of human bones.
My first thought was, what will Mission Central do with a skeleton? But, during the conversation, I came to understand that these were bone fragments used for bone grafts and implants. While medically valuable – if we didn’t take them – they were going in the dumpster!
