Spotlight on Neighbors: Doctors Dan & Diane Lewis
The Lewis’s latest family trip is a two-week humanitarian project in Uganda, in the same village where Ryan previously worked with Be the Change Volunteers, an organization based in Columbia, Missouri. Be the Change is a development aid non-profit with a mission to improve education opportunities worldwide through infrastructure, equipping, and training for project partners. Operating primarily in third-world and developing countries. The organization sends selffunded volunteers to work in partnership with the local community. They provide sustainable, educational opportunities where facilities are desperately needed. Thirtyone schools have been built so far in only eight years in places such as Papua New Guinea, Peru, Cambodia, and Uganda.
Sarah is looking forward to rendezvousing with her brother, Ryan, in Uganda. “I’m so excited to have the chance to meet and spend time with the people Ryan befriended on his earlier trip and to do some good by helping build a much-needed school,” she said.
And, as history has shown, the adventure continues for Dan and Diane with plans for Dan to teach a course in Zurich, Switzerland next winter. “Before I get too old, I’d like to go ski the Alps,” Dan added.
For the Lewis family – each member committed to healing, service to others, and making a difference locally and abroad – the road ahead is sure to be filled with excitement and adventure, leaving nothing short of a positive impact along the way.
