Andrew and Prasad

Prasad has muscular dystrophy and lives in an orphanage near the Godavari River in southeast India. His best buddy is Andrew. They're both 12. During a mission trip, my brother Steve's crew played a game -- mock "job interviews" to help the kids build some skills.

On one question, Steve asked, "How often are you late to school, Andrew?"

"Five times," Andrew said.

"Five times a year? Five times a month?" Steve asked.

"No. Five times a week."

"Andrew, why are you late to school five times a week?"

"Because I carry Prasad on my back."
