Joni with scholarship recipients Every school year, Azusa Pacific University awards scholarships to select students who have a heart to serve people with disabilities – this year, Sarah Koehler and Sarah Browning were recipients of the Joni Eareckson Tada Scholarship Award, and I couldn't be more honored. The purpose of the scholarship is to identify, encourage, train, and prepare undergraduate social work and practical theology students called to disability ministry – they must demonstrate high academic standards, leadership skills, and be enrolled in the "Suffering:  Theological and Practical Perspectives on Disabilities" class at APU. These exceptional students are definitely demonstrating Romans 12:11, "Never be lacking in zeal, but keep your spiritual fervor, serving the Lord." So congratulations to Sarah K. and Sarah B. for pursuing careers that will truly bless special-needs families! (Know a student at Azusa Pacific University? Introduce them to the Joni Eareckson Tada Scholarship here on APU's website).

Joni so happy these girls are willing to help those with disabilities. We need more students willing to "step up to the plate" and go this route. you have been such a great example. How you never gave up and kept looking up to Jesus for Him to direct you in the way you should go. Love this picture
