When Discrimination is Life-ThreateningWhen I travel to developing nations, it's clear that discrimination against people with disabilities is rampant – disabled children often are forbidden to attend school, disabled adults have virtually no access to good jobs, and are often banned from entering high-end restaurants or hotels. But in certain parts of the world, people with disabilities, such as albinos, are in danger of losing their lives. This chilling BBC news story will unnerve you, but it will also energize you to pray against the terrible greed and superstition that fuels this evil trade in parts of Africa.

Dear Joni, This is the first time I have ever read your blog. Thanks so much for sharing this post and the link to the news article. I am so amazed at the immeasurable corruption of the soul that greed, discrimination, fear, and ignorance lead to. You are a blessing to this world. May the Lord continue to use you for His glory and honor to encourage His people.
