Traveling to rugged locations far from the comforts of home to do mission work isn't a task for the faint-hearted. But the thought of someone doing so in a wheelchair with only limited use of one arm is enough to spark disbelief. Even among people who believe God can move mountains. Even when those people are family members. Heather Herschap, 27, who graduated Friday from Baylor University's George W. Truett Theological Seminary, has surprised and inspired family, friends, mentors and fellow students with her courage and commitment -- and she's just getting started.
Brooke Holloway, a December 2006 Truett graduate, is the Minister of Youth and Community Missions at Central Baptist Church in Marshall, Texas where she is completing her first year of full-time ministry.
