Disability and belonging
Melissa Pullon grew up in a home with a severely disabled older sister. Then her first son was born and diagnosed with autism, followed by two other children with medical issues. Twice she has been diagnosed with brain tumors.
She has used those experiences to touch the lives of others. She credits God with leading her into the field of disability and ministry for her entire adult life. As the Area Director for Young Life Capernaum Arizona, she gives young people with intellectual and developmental disabilities the chance to experience fun and adventure, to develop fulfilling friendships and to challenge their limits while building self-esteem through club, camp, and other exciting activities.
Her story is a touching example of 2 Corinthians 1:3-4, using her challenges to reach out and help others.
