Our Joni and Friends/Bay Area team is heading this week to Thailand, a predominantly Buddhist nation that includes more than 6 million people with disabilities. From January 18 - February 3, our Wheels for the World team will be distributing wheelchairs, Bibles, and Joni's book in the Thai language, giving the Gospel of Jesus Christ to people with disabilities and their families. Part of our Joni and Friends team arrived in-country early last week to solidify plans for an International Family Retreat to be held in February – in conjunction with this retreat, our Total Access crew of construction workers will be 'demonstrating' Gospel access by widening doorways and pouring concrete ramps, all to showcase how accessible the love of Christ truly is. Over the next three weeks, join us in praying for this comprehensive and coordinated outreach, asking the Holy Spirit to open hearts to the Savior's love.

I am not able to take part in this this year, but I have such a heart for Thailand. A deep love and feel God has lead me to serve in a government agency for people with special needs in my home town here in Canada. I also have lived in Chiang Mai. While I know this is not possible for this year, even as someone praying across the waters I would love to learn more. This pulls at many heart strings. Do tell me more. So love reading about this. Ha ha I even just remembered that I served as a host to a family at Christian Horizons Camp in Toronto at Elime Lodge last summer. Though I live in Calgary my church sponsored me to go and see what it was about. What a thrill it would be to do this in Thailand someday. Praying for you. Love that God is doing this in such a beautiful city. Andrea
