6-year old Victoria spent every day sitting beside the dirt road while her mother sold the few vegetables she grew. Because Victoria has cerebral palsy, she is unable to walk or attend school. Her mother has no money for a wheelchair – such a thing costs more than she earns in a year. For six years Victoria waited – until your love sent a miracle that changed everything! Joy broke over mother and daughter as Victoria was seated in a new Regency Pediatric Wheelchair. “This wheelchair you have given us is a manifestation of God’s word and His love coming true,” Victoria’s mother said. “You have lifted us from shame and placed God’s love on our lives!” Little Victoria now attends school in her village, where the astonishing story of her wheelchair is being shared with curious neighbors, friends, family members and children. Christ’s love is now visible right before their eyes because your love sent a wheelchair to declare it!
This Christmas, what could be a more perfect gift than a wheelchair to show God’s love to a child affected by disability? In developing nations, wheelchairs are scarce and the need is tremendous! Thousands of disabled children like Victoria still need our help. Through Joni and Friends, a gift of just $150 sends a wheelchair and a Bible to someone in need. In the world’s economy, $150 can’t do much. In God’s hands, it will change a life forever! Every gift – in any amount – helps! God will use every dollar to deliver the perfect gift of a wheelchair to a disabled child or adult who will receive it with joy. Thank you for sending the love of Jesus to people who need Him desperately this Christmas.
