A Wheelchair from You Leads to a Church Home

Cecelia and JaymiJaymi in her pediatric wheelchair

Cecelia lives with her daughter, Jaymi, in a rustic village in El Salvador. Cecelia is a toughened woman with an even tougher job: How will she raise a disabled little girl in such a place, alone? Cecelia and Jaymi were provided much needed help at a Wheels for the World outreach. Little Jaymi was given a sturdy pediatric wheelchair that will grow with her for years, and the team’s physical therapist demonstrated exercises for strengthening Jaymi’s body. But even better, a Bible in Spanish was given to Cecelia. A local pastor opened it and shared the Gospel simply and clearly. He knew of their tiny village. He took down their names and nodded confidently. “Sí, sí. There is a church nearby. They will help you and will bring you into their hearts.” Through Wheels for the World, relationships with local pastors are formed, and families who live with disability are brought into the arms of a nearby church and into a vibrant new relationship with Jesus Christ. Your faithful support, delivered with a wheelchair, makes it possible.
