87-Year-old Woman With Parkinson’s Gets Surprise………

Published on Sep 30, 2016
A woman with Parkinson’s disease is left bedridden but thanks some special friends, is able to enjoy her passion of riding horses one more time. A project titled ‘Hidden Desires’ granted Nelly Jacobs’ last wish and arranged for the 87-year-old to visit a stable in the Netherlands. She was placed on a bed carried by two horses and ridden around as she reminisced about her younger days as an equestrian. Nelly was introduced to horse riding when she was nine and has been in love with the animals ever since.

This video definitely shows how important it is to help others. December 3, 2016, focuses on Jesus Christ helping others to see.  As individuals we can help others in many different ways. Service brings joy to others but more importantly each of us will be uplifted and have an intense feeling of jubilance ourselves.
