Hi, I’m Joni Eareckson Tada. Recently, a special letter from a special needs mom caught my attention here at Joni and Friends. It started: “Joni, enclosed is a donation for Wheels for the World. This gift is from our adult daughter, Rachel who has cerebral palsy. Our precious daughter was born two months early and we came close to losing her a few times. But God had plans for her life … Joni, when Rachel received unexpected money last week, her first thought was to sponsor two wheelchairs… one [for] a disabled child and adult who do not have a wheelchair.”  Well, you can see why this gift encouraged me. Like the widow who gave all she had, Rachel was happy to give out of her need. I mean, here’s a disabled girl who has no income, but when she was surprised with some, she was happy to give it to others in need, just like her. And that is a lesson for us all.
