On His Path

About the Founders
John & Jean Mitchell
On His Path was founded by John & Jean Mitchell in 2009 with the desire that children in developing countries could benefit from the Ponseti method of clubfoot correction. Initially, this started with a business John formed in 2004 called MD Orthopaedics, Inc. which designed and manufactured a clubfoot brace along with medical teaching models to teach, train, and implement the Ponseti method of clubfoot treatment. John, along with the support from his wife Jean, started the company in their garage after Dr. Ignacio Ponseti encouraged John to make a more conforming, comfortable brace for the babies that he saw on a daily basis. Out of the abundance of God’s blessing upon MD Orthopaedics, Inc., On His Path was born.

“For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.” – EPHESIANS 2:10
Our Story
John and Jean Mitchell founded On His Path, on the belief of this scripture. They believe, just as scripture states, that they are his workmanship and have been created for good works that were prepared for them. They felt the calling and have been obedient to the calling out of the reverence and awe of what Jesus Christ did for them.

Since the inception of On His Path (and even back when MD Orthopaedics was in their garage) the Lord put the vision of eradicating untreated clubfoot in John and Jean Mitchell’s heart. This vision was ignited, after John met Dr. Ponseti. When John went to visit Dr. Ponseti’s clinic, he noticed that there was a baby in the waiting room. The baby had sores on his feet from the shoes he was wearing. The baby needed to wear the shoes to correct his clubfoot. John had extreme compassion for that child and his family, he asked Dr. Ponseti to get a hold of the shoe manufacturer to fix the problem. Dr. Ponseti said that the shoe has been around for a very long time. He asked that John make a comfortable shoe for the children. He explained that a better shoe needed to be made; so there would be better compliance by the parents and less relapse of the children’s feet. John and Jean prayed fervently for wisdom and direction.
Through prayer, God assured Jean, that He would do great things through John with the clubfoot brace.
On His Path is passionate about eradicating untreated clubfoot. We are focusing on Central America, and with your help aiming to create access to every single child in the world with the Ponseti treatment of clubfoot.
