Mary Jane Ponten was born with Cerebral Palsy at a time when the knowledge base for her condition was virtually nonexistent. This is a story of persistence and a demonstration of what life can become through faith in Christ, acceptance of who you are and determination to become everything that God has created you for by refusing to accept the limitations projected on you by others. It’s a story that will make you smile. Mary Jane dreamed of becoming a missionary as a child, but no mission agency would accept her. Her missionary career was to start 50 years later, and today, now in her 80’s, she continues to minister anywhere in the world she feels God is calling her.
