David Miti was born in 1966 in Zambia’s Eastern province where he built a career as a truck driver and a carpenter. Then, at age 34, his life changed forever. “The day started with a fever,” Miti recalls. “I went to a hospital and got medicine, but after I went home I discovered a blister on my left leg. Then after some hours there was another blister on the other leg. Then my legs turned black.” Mr. Miti was diagnosed with gangrene, a condition in which body tissue dies due to a lack of blood supply. To save Miti’s life, doctors had to amputate both legs. “It pained me” says Miti. “I nearly committed suicide. I thought that my life had ended.” But it hadn’t. Instead, Miti found an opportunity to leverage his disability by giving back to those in similar positions to him. Miti started working for the Zambian Association for Children with Disabilities, where he uses his carpentry skills to build devices for disabled children. Now, he has the opportunity to walk thanks to a pair of prosthetic legs. Filmmaker Austin Meyer documents Mitis first steps in this short film.

My brother, we are all stars on sabbatical from the heavens. We willingly exchanged aeons of untold power and Light for the chance to experience life on this beautiful blue planet. We are here to hug, to plant , to sing, to laugh, to create and to cry..and to feel the abject bewilderment and temporary loss that never befall stars.

Love and good energy from Goa to all

África o feudo branco ..Este caso é daqueles casos e muitos que não aconteceria se houvesse saúde!!? No carrossel da vida a mudança e com ela o infortúnio ...mudou a vida dele e ele não parou e outros mudarami!! A satisfacao dele e impressionsnte?!! Apesar de tudo a nova adaptação chegou ..a perseverança valeu-lhe uma nova mobilidade ...agora a força para atingir as coisas que gostava de fazer e isso é uma mais valia para recomeçar!! Há sempre um recomeço ...depois da tempestade a bonança!!

God Bless David Miti. What an inspiration! He is the personification of Luke 6:38 (KJV):

"Give, and it shall be given unto you; good measure, pressed down, and shaken together, and running over, shall men give into your bosom. For with the same measure that ye mete withal it shall be measured to you again".

In Christ's new kingdom you will have a new body. All things will become new! I'm glad you didn't give up and accepted Jesus Christ and His promises. Now you're an inspiration to us all. Glory to God and His mysterious ways! Hope to see you in the kingdom one day and run with you. God bless!
