From the Heart—A Letter from Ken Tada

“Go into all the world and preach the Good News to everyone.”- Mark 16:15

Thank you for the way you love and support my wonderful wife. I saw it when I helped Joni go through the many Happy Birthday wishes you recently sent in. (She was so touched!) And I see it every day as we work together to do the mission of Joni and Friends – you are standing by her with every prayer and gift to this ministry.  

Joni loves hearing all the reports I share whenever I serve on a Wheels for the World outreach. Tears fill her eyes when I tell her about the many disabled children who receive Jesus (as well as wheelchairs). And at Family Retreats, I watch her tirelessly interact with all the moms, dads, and kids. Plus, we love our Cause 4 Life interns as they grab the torch of God’s Gospel and run with it to the world’s disabled – my wife is passionate about equipping this next generation to reach more disabled people for Christ!  

But it’s clear there are many more to reach. I know Joni well, and she is completely committed to the mission God has given Joni and Friends. She’s not about to waste a minute or squander an opportunity. My heart swells with pride when I see her squeeze every effort out of her paralyzed body to see that the Gospel is given to those who are seldom remembered, like those who are disabled. I’m committed to help her do that. And I want to thank you for standing with Joni and me to do the same. Thank you for joining us in reaching even more families affected by disability for Christ!
