Hats off to Joni and Friends Texas and Wheels for the World who partnered together to provide more than 1,000 mobility devices and Beyond Suffering Bibles to children and adults with disability who lost their wheelchairs in Hurricane Harvey. Mary Grace Rushing is pictured here with Houston's Mayor Turner who came to help with the distribution effort. Pictured also is Carlos, a young boy who certainly was happy to receive a new set of wheels after he lost his pediatric wheelchair in the rescue! Mary Grace wrote, "It was a great privilege to serve the Lord during my days in Houston and Beaumont in the last week. Mayor Turner personally thanked Joni and Friends for our donation to his city. I shared with him the mission and ministry of Joni and Friends and he asked that I pass along his sincere gratitude to you." So, a big thanks to all of you who prayed for the many people with disabilities who were affected by the hurricane!
