We’re working hard this summer to take disability ministry not only “into the streets,” but into seminaries and Bible colleges around the world. Yes, that means holding disability ministry classes in Christian institutions across the States and around the world, including the Gaba Bible Institute (GBI) in Uganda. gaba bible institute in ugandaAt GBI, however, we took it a step further and actually helped make the facility itself accessible – through Joni and Friends’ partnership with GBI, we worked alongside to widen doorways and construct ramps! The president of Gaba Bible Institute wrote us this week, “Currently we have completed three ramps to our classrooms, offices and library. Construction has also started on ramps to our dining hall and parking lot. Thank you once again for helping us make it happen! We are so excited to provide access to students with disabilities at GBI!”

It's the small things that make huge difference! A little concrete - a little time... and a wonderful witness! The Gospel in action speaks twice as loud. Well done!

I had foot surgery last October and could only get around on one foot. I wasn't supposed to put any pressure on the other foot, which had a pin in one toe. I really learned to appreciate buildings which had ramps! I had no idea the difference it made between going up a smooth ramp and trying to lift myself up even on the smallest curbs! It's such a great thing to do, to provide ramps for the handicapped. Even though I was only handicapped in a small way, I can really appreciate how important ramps and other things are now!
