Joni's African FriendWhenever I'm showing a visitor my office, I always point to this photo on the wall above my desk. Our Wheels for the World team tried to give this paralyzed African man a wheelchair, but he was in too much pain to be moved. His story broke my heart, and so I keep his photo in a prominent place so that I might be daily reminded of the 1 billion people with disabilities we have a heart to reach for Christ – 80% of whom live in developing nations. Please join me in praying that God will use Joni and Friends and our many international partners in advancing the global disability ministry movement… It's all about reaching for Christ people like my African friend.

God is truly moving His Will to help the disabled and giving glory to Him for JON I AND FRIENDS for giving so much equipment to help the disabled in Ghana to have not only equipment but the love and salvation given to them. Great story of a writer paralyzed and could only lay flat. Our P.T'S prepared him a wheelchair just for his body . He could write and be relaxed. God not only gave him a wheelchair and His salvation to him. Pray as we go with our church for crusade,medical and wheels outreach this weekend April 25th.
